  • "a collaboration between Grey Alien and Big Robot's Jim Rossignol, includes artwork from illustrator Jen Pattison, and is supported by Thomas Was Alone developer Bithell Games. Which is quite a line up."
    - Joe Donelly, PC Gamer
  • "Grey Alien make card games—you might have heard of Shadowhand, and Regency Solitaire before it, two games that reside in that period of the past we call 'history'. Ancient Enemy is different, in that it's a sort of post-apocalyptic fantasy pitting your mage protagonist against various evildoers and monsters. But it retains, at heart, the Solitaire-style card-play of the previous titles."
    - Tom Sykes, PC Gamer
  • "Ancient Enemy offers extensive playtime and is incredibly addictive. Gameplay is varied, combat is satisfying, and loot is always worthwhile, encouraging the player to come back for more. The indie developers behind this project have created a masterful work that is fun for all players and proves that even the humble card game can offer a unique and enjoyable experience."
    - Amy Campbell, Escapist Magazine
