Runespell: Overture reviews and comments

Since my Foreigent Review was not sent, only very briefly my Conclusion ... For 5 Euros this Game, a Mixture of Solitaire, Spidersolitaire and Poker is highly recommended. The Graphics are good and coherent and the AI is very good except for a few Dropouts-but also partly has some unfair Card advantages, which you never get!

First run: EM... What do you do then? How to play.. The Russian is not a card which is unclear. After 15 minutes of early taxation. And the game Ta addictive with:. If seriously, personally I will play another hour 2 otstrengths, if not bored, yet the Russian is not present, though without translation to understand that it is possible, the game gets away, though this my Peraya card game, the price, well it is better to take when Skidochka: 3, and certainly for COLLECTORS, there are cards. 5 out of 10 Lord 5 OF 10

The Game was caught in the rendezvous. Like nothing, but nothing special. 5 \ 10. This is a card game with a certain likeness of the plot about card games and quests in the form of cards, for players in cards playing cards with skating characters. 80% of the game consists of playing cards, or rather poker, only with their rules. Perhaps this game was to be a likeness of other card games, but this is too simple or not addictive. In General, I can not recommend this game, because it actually has nothing special.

An Original and beautiful role-playing game with its own combat system, which is impossible to meet in other games of the same genre and similar plot. First of all, due to the fact that this battle system involves the bright principles of Yahtzee and Poker, that is, the player will fold the cards in such a way as to strike the opponent or activate a new unique ability. In the game Runespell: Overture you will find more than thirty kinds of ruthless monsters, a huge number of attacks and bonuses, the ability to recruit allies, unique weapons and twenty achievements. It Will be interesting!

Poker meets Fantasy. Depending on the Map sheet Constellation, the Enemy Can be faced with different high Damage points in front of the License and, on top of That, you can also apply separate power cards within three permitted moves. With about 8 Hours of Play, Runespell Overture offers plenty of Fun and Is consistent in Price and performance. Achievement hunters are even longer on the road. The graphic Presentation of the Game pleases very well and the Dialogues sometimes spray with Wit and Charm. All Texts and Menus of the indie RPG are unfortunately only localized in English – spoken Sequences there are no. Too bad: In the Long Term, you catch yourself again and again with the same strategic Approach, which is probably due to the mediocre opponent AI. 7.5/10
