Chaotica: A Card Game v1.01a

Submitted by Astrella
This bundle is marked as approved. It works and satisfies the submission rules.
A turnbased map along the lines of Magic the Gathering and Wow trading card game with the option of building your own custom deck.

The goal of the game is to kill the opposing deckmaster. However, he is protected by three strong shield which you have to take down before you can target him.

To do this, you summon essences, every turn, you gain mana depending on the number of essences you have in play. This mana can be used to summon creatures to attack your opponent and to cast various spells.

The game is turnbased.

The map is now 2v2 instead of 1v1.

    Sorry for double posting

    The Good:
    Good card game, Requires intellect to overcome the learning curve
    Many many different combos within the cards.
    Good concept.

    The Bad:
    With the learning curve, it is most likely that this game will become a social buffer, rooting out the "stupid" people from the intellectuals.
    Given the amount of combos. There's still too little cards.

    The UGLY (Bugs):
    The Tombstone doesn't create a skeleton! It just stays as a tombstone!
    "End Turn" doesn't work when there's only 1 player to a team.
    You can sacrifice your allies essences. This is bad and good, i don't know if this is a bug or not.

    Thanks, I'm aware of the difficulty of the map and the bugs you mentioned, I'm willing to fix them, but I'm working on an all new version of the map, so I'm not sure if still fixing them would be wise. In the new version, there will be a short tutorial of the game, so new players will understand the concept.

    I've uploaded a very early alpha version of the new map on the helper forums, you can check it out at this link:

    err... That's probably from the new loading screen, but until I receive some feedback on the new version you can see in the link, I'll add more content to this version...

    The Good:
    Skeletons are more useful
    Most bugs are fixed.

    The Bad:
    If people get too many creatures out, the game becomes impossible to win.

    The Ugly Bugs:
    You can sacrifice your ally's essences to draw cards.

    Suggestions:
    Add some cards with really good effects and call them "Legendary" cards, They can only have 1 "Legendary" copy of each card in the deck, (As the same as MTG's "legend rule").

    Add creature types? and add abilites and spells that affect those creature types?

    I honestly thought I had fixed the bug with being able to sacrifice you're allies essences:eekani:

    Thanks for your great support by the way, but I'm not planning to add a lot more to this map since I'm working on the sequel of this map, all ideas will also be implemented in this new map. Why don't you check out that map and say what you think of it?

    I'd be glad if you'd check it out, since you've already given such good feedback.

    I played your map, and it was pretty good. It definitely needs more cards, but those will come with time.

    Couple of bugs I've found.


    1. Giant growth works on shields and glitches as well. The shield doesn't get more life, but it does get a perma 3 attack making it kill creatures that attack it.
    2. When a player dies, they can continue to use rods of ruin to fight. I had a game where one player died with 3 rods of ruin in play. He had unlimited essence and could deal 3 damage a turn while we attempted to kill his ally.

    One other suggestion would be the ability to stack enchantments and more enchantments.

    Either way, very good game. I look forward to future updates.

    Thanks!

    Actually, I'm thinking about doing a complete rewrite of the map (since the code is very inefficient) and changing the game style to a more Yu-Gi-Oh type of card game...

    I prefer Magic to Yugi but that's just because I've played magic for so long.

    I'll test this new version today and let you know if I find any bugs and or places for improvement.

    You did either buy cards for a custom deck or bought a premade deck?
