What would happen if giant monsters were indestructible? Wait, let me rephrase that. What would happen if giant monsters were real and indestructible? The answer, according to Kaijack Card Attack, is that they'd play a gamw somewhere between solitaire and poker. While also smashing the crap out of everything.
The game comes from the dev behind Crap! I'm Broke, but you wouldn't guess by looking at it. There's a brightness here, from the scraps themselves to the backgrounds, and rather than worrying about making enough money to pay the rent, here you're worried about huge creatures smashing up your house. Whilst also being a giant creatue yourself.
The play is pretty simple. At the start of the game you're randomly given a number between 1 and 21. You also get a card, and a target. Your opponent gts the same, but obviously you can't see what card they've got.
Now it's time to make some choices. You can add or subtract the number on card from the target number to bring it closer to your own, or you can take the opposite tack and add the card's value to your own number. The twist is, your opponent's move happens at the same time.
That means you need to think about what they're trying to do, and consider how your action might affect the goal they're heading for. Whoever is closest to the target number when the maths has happened gets a point. The first team to three points wins the game.
It's a pretty simple build at the moment, and there's some interesting ideas being built into it as well. There'll be a story, a chunky single player mode, and some local multiplayer options thrown in as well.
Kaijack Card Attack feels like it could hit the sweet spot between casual and hardcore, offering an experience that's simple to pick up, but reveals further depths the more you push into it. And quite frankly that's exactly the sort of thing we'd love to see more of here at 148Apps.
There's no release date for the game yet, but we'll keep you posted as and when we get any more information. To sum up though - giant monsters, card-laying, and building destroying are the order of the day here. And we're well into it.
