Good old-school strategy game (Based on the demo) I found this card battle game to be an interesting addition to BFG's small library of rpg/strategy games (technically separate from time management games). The gameplay is simple, (though I suspect it will grow more complicated and difficult as the game progresses): you work your way across the map acquiring quests, and these quests in turn open new locations on the map. The quests can be simple 'fetch' quests or they can be battle quests, and occasionally you are given choices which may affect the course of the game. Upon completion of the quests, the player is given experience points, which are necessary to gain new character levels and -- in rpg fashion -- each new level unlocks stat points which can be used to boost the hero's offensive or defensive statistics. Battle is turn-based and consists of playing offensive, defensive, healing, and stat-boosting cards, most of which are randomly generated, and throughout the game new cards are made available for purchase either in the shops or by the completion of quests. Although the gameplay itself is different, fans of the wonderful 'Puzzle Quest' games will recognize several elements in play here, such as repeated visits to locations where new quests are generated as the story, and your participation, dictates. An interesting feature of this game is the occasional chests you stumble upon throughout the game, the contents of which are unlocked by solving an anagram riddle -- old-school gamers may recall this exact same feature from the 1993 Sierra RPG 'Betrayal at Krondor'. All and all, an intriguing and unexpected offering from Big Fish -- my curiosity is piqued and as soon as my monthly credit kicks in, I will be getting this one to do some further exploration.

Requires Commitment If you can persevere through the learning stage, this game looks great. Card/battle mechanics seem cloudy at first, but not too much is expected at the beginning. Characterisation is humorous. I'm expecting many hours of absorbing gameplay. April 24, 2013
Fun strategy card game This is a fun strategy card game with a good RPG Element. Lots of cards to buy and work out how to play. Different characters and strategies appear possible through the game. April 24, 2013
LET THE QUEST BEGIN! I will be honest with you, I'm not a big fan of the detailed strategy games but this one isn't bad. It is a very confusing game and there is a lot of detailed information to remember before the game even begins, choose the character carefully because it matters especially in battle. It took me a couple of re-takes to figure out what cards or powers to choose to win the battle. Healing powers and magic are sometimes better than weapons. I don't really think this is a game to base an opinion on a demo, just not enough time. If you like this kind of game you will probably have to buy it, one hour just isn't enough play time. Enjoy!

Engaging Adventure DO NOT SKIP THE DIRECTIONS! and don't go through them too fast. Very nice battle card game. Good sense of humor and the quests are fun. Battle mode takes a bit of getting used to but is heavy strategy. April 28, 2013
good game Once you get started this game was hard to stop playing. The story line is great. December 1, 2013
Battle game This is not a game for a 65 year old lady like me ,but my granddaughter would love it. any thing with battle in it is right up her alley. very good for kids. April 24, 2013
Northmark, battle card game well I have avoided this game for a while, tonite sat down to figure it out and now that I have it understood it is a really neat game. Lots of places to visit and plenty of battles with loads of cards to get the game on with. I enjoyed it. I hope to see another like it. October 3, 2013
Really liked it It's a good strategy game and a nice departure from the hidden object games. As long as you don't skip through the instructions at the beginning, it's fun and selecting the right combination of player cards and battle deck to counter the opponents gets your noggin working. Hope we get more of these! May 3, 2013
Well...that was more like a 2 hour demo. I bought this elsewhere but I always have trouble choosing games so I figured I would let everyone know my thoughts on this. It's actually pretty fun, occasionally hard, usually super easy. It wasn't until the final battle I even lost once to be honest. And that was an issue because all of a sudden it's game over? Really? There's tons left to do, you can't really level up more then it allows you. It does drive me nuts that you also can't keep leveling up your cards so YOU can get more skills, but not your cards. I was always frustrated trying to go back to areas. In short it's a tiny battle card game and the entire rest of it is more go to A get B go back to A. The humor and writing is pretty decent, but I felt horribly cheated at the end. They set it up for a sequel which is very frustrating. There's a HUGE map and you barely touch on it so when all of a sudden you are done, just as it was getting intriguing. Roll credits. August 4, 2013
