Pretty good solitaire game


I had previously given this app only 1 star only because there are no instructions. After figuring most of the game out on my own I found it to be a pretty good solitaire card game.
The game only works in portrait mode on an iPad. Found some basic instructions online but still working on how shield fail and health loss is calculated. Other than that I now like the game.

Please bring back watch support!


Was my favorite Apple Watch game but than the app for watch went away. Please bring back, would be a 5 star game than.

Great design! A fun challenge once you figure out the rules.


You should take some time and put in a few dozen games to figure out the rules, as this is an excellent game design, slightly obscured by the opaque ruleset. The meta strategy of preparing yourself for what could come in the next room and stashing cards for later use is clever. The ability to count cards would be valuable in getting high scores, but is not required.

The deck has 54 cards (the “jokers” are Donsol, the strongest enemy). Black suits are enemies, hearts heal you and shields protect you against the enemies you fight.

Some tips for beginners: You can run from a room when there’s one card left. That card will go back in the deck. Avoid running from strong enemies when possible. Instead, run when you have a potion or shield you don’t need, to save it for later.

Imagine the shield as a stack of cards. When you pick a shield, it replaces your old shield, and the next enemy you attack can have any strength. Attacking an enemy puts it on top of the stack. After that, you can only attack enemies with lower values than the top of the shield stack without breaking your shield. A fresh shield is the only way to defeat the Donsol (21) (Joker) enemies.

The color of the word “health" indicates whether you drank a health potion on the last turn.

On the first turn, you can reshuffle and get a new room if you don’t like the starting draw.
