A amazing concept done really well,that was a lot of fun.

I'm so happy you liked it, thank you for taking the time to play and review :)

Interesting idea, pretty creative

chefdez responds:

Thanks for playing, friend

The concept is simple enough, and decently fun. However, a few problems keep it from being engaging for long:
- No new gameplay concepts are introduced as far as I can tell. The only things that really change are enemy health numbers. No new cards, status effects, interactions, etc. This makes the game go stale quickly.
- The randomization of the cards works in very predictable ways. I caught onto it very quickly, and it made the game trivial to figure out and do well in.

My point is that it's a fine concept that wasn't taken far enough. It's an ok game to just play for a bit though.

chefdez responds:

Thanks a lot for playing! We made this for GGJ21 and I'm proud of the result. Something about HTML5 works differently with randomization!

Edit: I've updated the randomization code, I think it works a lot better on HTML5 :)
