RebTower, a strategy card game inspired by the Magic The Gathering
original card game, has been released.
This is still a work in progress but is currently fully playable (some
art is missing and the help file..)
You can download it here: http://rebol.mustard.co.nz/rebtower-0.0.6.zip
The basic premise of the game is to strategically play the cards you are
dealt so as to keep your tower alive while destroying your opponents.
In the default deck provided with the game it is set in a fantasy realm
- there is nothing to stop people from creating their own ones like sci
fi / modern day etc.
(See the readme.txt and look at the starter-deck.txt and template.txt
files for inspiration)
# You are provided with 3 types of resource generator (crystal mines /
forests / gold mines)
# These generate stockpiles of energy, wood and gold respectively for you.
# These stockpiles are used to activate cards in your hand (which
depletes them according to the cost indicated on the card).
# Cards in your hand may also have a duration - in this case they go
into a stack by your resources and continue to affect the game until
their turn timer runs out.
By playing your cards carefully and planning ahead you will hopefully
beat the computer more than not ;)
