The Necronomicon 2.0

Share Collapse

Author Comments

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.


great minus 1 thing

it was simple to pick up and learn, how ever, i HATE (make that font 96, bold and underlined) building up to a high level, losing 1 time, and it is over. start from ground zero. i made it up to rank 9... before finally getting beat. after putting in all that effort to get to that point in the game.... it is not doing again. either put in save point, reduction in rank if defeated, something to help the player press on. solid idea for a game, a few minor tweeks will make this game really shine.

Hi, thanks for the review and score. And same to everyone here who's rated.
Loading the game should work. There's a load game option on the main menu. The level number you're on is displayed in the opponents section.


The number of different cards is great. I suppose the library could be expanded a little bit, but it is better than having hundreds of cards to deal with. The game is much easier to pick up and enjoy this way.

What I'd like to see changed, however, are insanity penalties. I want to see punishments that reflect insanity; not being in full control of your moves. The penalty that only lets you choose from 2 cards is good, but I'd like to see others, such as not being able to read your cards every other turn or for X turns, skipping turns, or generating random values for cards you play.


The studies of the Necronomicon and Cthulhu mythos are my life and you have provided a great game of it to newgrounds thank you!
