I managed to kill the first enemy but didn't get through the second one :O
Thanks for the game, the concept is really cool :D

Great Idea, the game looks awesome and fun, but man, Im pretty sure its impossible to fight the second enemy.

Developer

Just almost impossible my friend! While balancing, my play tester hit the jackpot that seems to be practically unachievable. I assumed it was a healthy challenged and regretfully submitted. On my last try, it took me 15 attempts to beat the 2nd enemy and I would have fixed this if the Jam hadn't locked the files. Thanks for playing!

This concept and mechanics are really fun. I enjoyed the fights and the character  designs look really cool. I think my only real critique is that the card balance could use some tweaking. As much as I tried I could not get past the second guy, but I was having fun so I kept trying. This was a fun experience. Great potential here. Good work!

Excellent! There is a great potential to explore this idea.

Cool idea! Theres definitely scope to expand this game with additional cards.

I liked the shuffling animation, and the mechanism of choosing which card *won't* get played! One minor tip might be to make the card font the same as the font in the game.

The game is really fun but I feel like it's too unfair sometimes

Developer

All is fair in love and RNG! The second fight came out way too hard. Wish I had playtested more!

yeah it's ok it's still an awesome game

This game was really fun, and the mechanic of only discarding cards was really unique. I would have added a pixel art background to the game because the green background was fairly boring to look at.  A tutorial would have been nice as well so you don't have to read the gameplay explanation at the bottom. Otherwise, the game was great! Keep designing games and doing what you are doing.
