Developed by Nerdook (Reverse Crawl, Vertical Drop Heroes), Monster Slayers is a complete reimagining of the free web-based hit of the same name, which has been played over 4 million times on gaming portal, Kongregate. A rogue-like deck-building RPG adventure, Monster Slayers uses an innovative card-based battle system and lets you customize a deck to suit your play style. Create a new hero to join the Monster Slayers Guild and choose your path through the perilous Northern Valley as you follow your quest to defeat the legendary Harbinger and become a true Monster Slayer.Features

  • Strategically shape your deck as you acquire new cards from merchants, treasure chests, and allies
  • Collect fame from each run to unlock new abilities that can be used by future heroes
  • Every playthrough is different: levels, enemy encounters and loot are randomly generated
  • Choose from six different classes: Rogue, Ranger, Knight, Barbarian, Cleric, Wizard
  • Recruit companions to join you on your quest and make use of their special abilities
  • Equip your hero with stat-boosting loot to improve the chances of victory
  • Fight for your place at the top of the Monster Slayers leaderboards

Monster Slayers reviews and comments

The Game offers considerably more Depth than it might at first Glance suggest. I like the Mechanics of putting together a Deck of cards that looks a little different every Round. The main aim is to find And exploit Synergies. A actually simple Principle, but that I was thrilled in the Long run. I can only recommend this Game to everyone!

Monster Slayers is a bit too short for me (and too easy with some Classes) to get away with a Class, but in my Opinion it is compensated by the completely different Classes and their different Ways of Playing. Fans of deck building Games should be given at least 15-20 Hours of Gameplay here for a small Prize.

A great Game that I got in a Bundle for almost nothing! It's definitely worth its Money, there are lots of Classes and Skills to Explore. After 18-19 h I defeated the Harbinger with a Ranger and am very proud:-) Sometimes it's a bit frustrating, especially at the Beginning, when a safely believed game is still lost after all and you have to start all over again. But that's life ... I'm definitely going to keep playing and get on with the other Classes. The Game is really very addictive!

Peak Game!!! I rarely write Reviews. And that means something when I publish a Review for this Game! Of Course, there is a certain Luck factor, but I find it that when you have worked out the cards, the Game is even more Fun. The Magic Hardcore Player be warned here, the Game is rather light fare. Here is my Pro and Cons: + long-term Motivation + a lot of Classes with own Cards + relatively many Monsters + some good boss fights + pointed Support with always new Patches-unlocking "Ranks" takes a very long time-the Final Boss (Harbinger) is not easy to defeat- When the Hero defeats the Final Boss he loots the equipped items (which I think is mean)

Again a little Insider tip, just like Reverse Crawl from the same Developer before. Just a Game that just a lot of Fun is to play. It is also Challenging, you lose more often and start over, but it is Fun to come up with new Approaches in order to make it better at the next Attempt. There are a Lot of Cards that you can also Upgrade, a lot of Classes, so there's no Boredom so quickly. Some are reportedly metering because of the small Scope, but whoever rushs through with a Character in 6 Hours didn't understand the Game. Playing It through with everyone will easily take 30 or more Hours. If you play through a game but don't Feel like it anymore, you won't even see most of the Game, as there is always enough Change and the classes and even the Card Combinations that you assemble always make for enough variety. One of the Games you can never play through and that are always Fun to start.
