Spellstone feels like a card game for novices to the genre. That’s not meant to be a slight on it, but it certainly seems to work better as a gateway to more complicated fare.

You’re placing down cards under the provision that one number dictates how much health the card possesses while the other tells you how much damage they can inflict. There are special abilities along the way too, but a lot of the time you’ll be weighing things up according to those two numbers.

That’s no bad thing as it makes Spellstone immediately accessible, but it’ll seem a little simplistic to those used to more complicated rulesets.

You can do things like fuse cards together to make them stronger, as well as participate in various different quests to unlock bonuses, but the same rules apply throughout.

That means you’ll enjoy your time with Spellstone but you’ll soon end up itching for there to be a little more going on, than simple acquisition of new cards.
