Card Quest is, like the name implies, a retro card RPG. In the game you choose a class, pick the proper equipment and embark into a dungeon of your choice. Inside you'll have to slay enemies and bosses to progress, and will unlock new equipment to add to your stash. Eventually things will get too hard and you will die and need to restart. But, as you unlock better and more specialized equipment you'll become able to get further and further into the dungeons, until you can finally beat them. The mechanics are simple, but get very deep as things start to get harder. You play offensive cards to kill your enemies and defensive cards to block and dodge their attacks. Some cards help you recover stamina or cycle through your deck, while others have the power to stun your enemies, weaken or poison them, giving room to a lot of varied strategies.
