    Between court intrigues, disguises, deceptions and sleight of hand, Card Shark tells an historical era through a story, which, like the truth, is a prism with well-defined faces capable of reflecting light in an iridescent way. Nerial new game is a brilliant take on narrative adventure and card games, where the gameplay makes you feel in the mind of a real cheater in his never ending game against the destiny in search of freedom.

    One of the year’s best orchestrations of gameplay and presentation in unison, Card Shark is a smart, but above all, brilliantly-crafted journey of cunning and deception.

    Card Shark is a clever and charming game whose engaging plot and gameplay focus on being a great cheat over being a master player gives it a unique personality.

    We were waiting for Card Shark with some impatience and as much to say that we were not disappointed. At the same time clever, original, exhilarating, effective, the game from the Nerial studio offers a unique adventure.

    Card Shark is an original concept and an intriguing demonstration of how the art of deception can be used to uncover the truth hidden in the upper middle class. Unfortunately, some technical problems have compromise the general experience of the game.

    Card Shark Review - Is this the Best Card Cheating Game Ever!? Honest Review! Fun or Not?

    Card Shark is a really interesting game based around pulling cheats off. It is extremely fun and enjoyable. It is quite varied in the amount of braingames and cheats you are presented with all accompanied by really well done flat visuals. If your looking for a game you can chill and play with some fun brain puzzles I think you cant go wrong here.
