About this game

Shelter is an exciting new zombie card-dueling game.

Playing like a hybrid of a collectible card game and the castle defense genre, Shelter will provide you with hours of challenging play.

Defend yourself from the zombie onslaught as you fight to be reunited with the woman you love. You define your strategy, but be warned...

...You'll need to adapt to survive.

Features:

- Deep but accessible gameplay. Easy to learn. Hard to master.
- More than 100 game cards.
- Integrated deck builder for deeply customizable play.
- Graphic novel & comic inspired hand drawn artwork.
- Compelling story and characters.
- 5 Campaign levels including a free roaming level.

Details:

The inspiration for Shelter comes from the desire to combine the complex, rich gaming mechanics of collectible card dueling games with the simple accessible gameplay of the castle defense genre.

Shelter is an asymmetric single-player card game where you build a deck of dueling cards and take them into battle against a zombie deck that "plays itself". The zombie deck is not controlled by a hideously complex AI, but plays based on a simple set of rules with dice rolls to add the element of chance. You must fight off the waves of zombies before they smash your shelter's barricades and start munching on your brains.

You choose your survival strategy when you build your deck. Do you pack as many guns into your deck as you can? Do you use traps and reinforce your defenses? Do you stun stronger zombies and pick off the weak ones? You have the freedom to play as you want.

As you win duels, you will be rewarded with new cards to work into your deck and streamline your play style. You will also meet allies throughout the campaign who you take into battle with you. Each ally brings 5 themed cards to the table that allow you to experience different styles of play.

Shelter is a fun game that I enjoy periodically as I like card games as well as the zombie theme. I rated 4/5 bc although it is fun, it could use a multiplayer element which could be fun. Also, I have not made it too far yet, but it was dissapointing that there is not a way to buy/sell cards to a shop/trader. Other than those 2 things, I am looking forward to see what it will be like when i progress further in the game. Hope this review helps, I recomend giving this title a try

A good deckbuilding game with some flawed pacing and progression. Enjoyable, worth the cost, but it wastes a lot of potential. The randomized loot meant that even after tons of side quests (~4 for every main quest) I only unlocked 31 of the 100+ cards by the time I beat the game. Way too many dupes of cards I didn't use, really needed an NPC trader or something. Also, the quest difficulty ratings use a 5 star system but I never saw a quest above 3 stars. It's weird stuff like that which ultimately holds it back.

Bought this without realising the free version has all features. Not too upset as it's a great game for the price. Some issues with bugs and card mechanics however which are too numerous to list here. Also, not sure why level difficulty caps at 3 out of 5. Made it seem like game would be longer and harder... Your zombies didn't beat me once! Was gonna rate 3, but then I remembered the art. So nice to see CCG with unified art. Love how the cards are laid out like comic book panes and goes hand in hand with the storytelling; its what attracted me in the first place.
