    A sublime, impeccably crafted roguelike card-battler that is absolutely without peer, Slay the Spire cements its place as one of the best games of this console generation. This. Is. Essential.

    Slay the Spire is a very difficult but hugely rewarding roguelike built around deck building and card battling. Each failure is a learning experience and the desire to succeed will keep you playing for potentially hundreds of hours.

    Slay The Spire is an ingenious and addicting blend of card game strategy and rogue-like mechanics. It's a potent mix that will keep you coming back for more, even if death often awaits you.

    Slay the Spire may have some slight performance issues in the transition from PC to console, but the game is still one of the best deck-building games out there. It’s definitely one of the best titles published by Humble Bundle so far, and it deserves its spot among the top-rated games of 2019.

    Slay the Spire is a hugely enjoyable single-player deck-builder that feels genuinely unique in its genre.

    Slay the Spire takes the best parts of roguelites, dungeon crawlers, and card games, and mixes them together into an unholy, but absurdly enjoyable game. It’s the kind of game that gets under your skin and uses it like a tent, just camping out and reminding you that you aren’t playing it. It’s the kind of game that you can jump in for one quick run and suddenly realise that you've been playing for five hours and should really be asleep. It’s the kind of game that is easy to play, hard to master, and impossible to put down. What more could you want?

    An excellent mix of turn-based dungeon crawler, roguelike, and card game whose perfectly balanced combat will have you constantly coming back for more.

    Very addicting gameplay. Simple but well designed. It’s really fun to make my own strategy.

It's really great if you have a spare hour and want to pass the time with some great ambient music, monsters, and cards. Expand

You're given a starter deck of cards and asked to advance through a map littered with battles playing your cards in order to attack, block and various status effects which can aid you and hinder your CPU adversaries. You'll have options on the map to rest, visit shops to buy new cards, and acquire rare relics which grant powerful abilities.

    The challenge makes the game as you will likely get beat down a few times before figuring out the mechanics. There is of course some luck of the draw which can help or spoil a run as well. There are four unique characters each with their own look and attributes which alter gameplay.

    After playing all four characters and chasing some trophies the game starts to run out of steam. Would like to see more characters added.

    Its all fake! Everything in this game is predetermined! I can prove it to you. At the start of a battle remember your cards. Force quit theIts all fake! Everything in this game is predetermined! I can prove it to you. At the start of a battle remember your cards. Force quit the game and reload it. The next draw will always be the same which could never occur if the cards were drawn randomly. So unfortunately its all fake!

    I expect a card game to be random. By that I mean that cards should be drawn randomly. Not in this game, you either get cards drawn preselected by the developers or their random card drawer is extremely bad implemented. I had a deck of 50 cards and one of the cards I had five times in the deck. Next draw I get 4 of those 5 cards onto my hand! Do you know how low the odds are for that to happen?! And this did not happen only once, it happens all the time. After this the game became unplayable for me.
