The sequel is now up on Newgrounds - you can check it out by selecting the 'also by this author' in the bottom left.

A brand new version of the card game The Necronomicon, with a new game mode, and full of new art drawn up by various contributors. There are now 30 ranks to beat, and the game ends when either you get to 30 before your opponent, or they beat you up to rank 30.

Bug fixes, game changes and tweaks, and a whole new game mode called Challenge Mode. Defeat the opponent in a series of scenarios where the odds are stacked against you.

Also includes some rule changes and creatures now have additional abilities.

** NEW - . - MASSIVE update to how the cards are dealt out. Basically what happens now in the fix is that you both have a deck of whatever amount of cards are unlocked, and each card will be seen once by each of you. There will be no duplicate cards appearing until your deck has been exhausted and shuffled, and so the only dups you will see are the cards you held from the previous shuffle. Makes everything much more balanced.

fun game, with some problems

I've been enjoying the first version of this game for a long time now, and am pleased to have found this improved version :-) It's great fun, and the lovecraftian theme taps into the player's memories of HPL's many stories.

There are some problems, however. First, there is a bug affecting the scores page (screenshot here):

Second, the opponent AI is pretty abyssmal. It plays creature cards while xenophobic, plays manuscript cards while schizophrenic, and plays light damage cards when the player's creature's counterstroke will kill it. It shouldn't be hard to detect these conditions and refrain from playing useless or counterproductive cards.

These problems will not stop me from playing and enjoying the game, of course :-) two big thumbs up for Necronomicon 2.0!

INCREDIBLE!!!!

Have been playing this for Days.. 2 year old game be nice if there was an update or a 3.0 soon
Only complaint, seemed the 21-30 levels were much easier than the first 20, I've beat the game several times now, needs a difficulty increase

This is a fun and awesome game!

The game mechanics are very easy to understand and entertaining. In the next version, you should integrate deck building and a card store. You could make use of the points that way as well. And once you hit a certain point threshold, that's when really good cards get unlocked. And to make the game longer, you should be able to play other people on NG in an MMO sort of way. THAT would be spectacular.

Thanks!

wow man!!!!!

this just outright blew my mind..... for a couple minutes at least, the games concepts and cards were right on the money (except for the lack of zombies and Cthulu) could really use more cards though, including Cthulu. i mean COME ON MAN, ITS CTHULU!!!!

and also to my understanding, is the entire concept of the game just two random guys, standing around in the street, summoning hell on each other and blowing each others faces of?
