The Switch eShop isn’t exactly short of card and deck-building games, but another to offer its take on the genre and do something a little different is Cardaclysm: Shards of the Four, developed by Elder Games and published by Headup.
Though there’s procedural generation, this is single-player game with RPG elements, pitting you up against some powerful foes in its story. The PR blurb below gives a good summary.
Cardaclysm: Shards of the Four is a procedurally generated collectible card game with action RPG elements. Tinkering with magic and spells beyond his ability, a dark wizard accidentally unleashes The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse and their minions. The only way to send them back to the fiery pit from whence they came is by battling through with over 240 cards and more that 40 artefacts.
After launching for PC in February, the game has been ported to consoles, and includes everything that can be found in the PC version, including all Early Access updates: Besides the 240+ cards and 40+ artifacts, you’re going to fight lots of enemies in six biomes and eventually face the fierce final boss in an especially deathly realm, filled with brutal creatures called “Agents of Death”. Only those who win enough keys are allowed to enter the final realm and face the ultimate boss: Death himself!
It’s a premium game too, so there are no microtransactions to contend with to build up your deck.
Cardaclysm: Shards of the Four is due to arrive on the eShop on 13th August, are you intrigued?
