I wonder if this game is available in Android

The game is fantastic, just beat it today!

Awesome game! Great for a short break. 

Amazing game! Thanks!!

loved this!


I had a blast with this! a cozy blast you could say :D


I used religion to beat the evil king OuO

cute art style <3

The game is amazing! Though, I would balance it slightly better. Slava Ukraini!!



This game is so fun but there is a bug on the browser version when you go full-screen that makes the cards and some words become non-visible

Very nice game!


HI there, would you like me to translate your game into Esperanto for free? I'm just looking to help the Esperanto community out by getting some more games into the language.

it's a good game, but i tink it will do a nice worlk in  mobiles,i'm look forward to it

Game is wonderful, but I've found a bug - you can click battle icons multiple times and it would make many overlapping maps, dealing 3 cards for every field shown up, so its possible to exhaust your deck on your first turn

This game is very pleasant, and I have a fun time with it. For a jam it's impressive. If you plan to work on it a bit more, here is my feedback :

  • The art style is good
  • Flipping card is satisfying
  • The Resources UI (at left) need some work, borders, a more appropriate font.
  • The menu need some life, moving waves, boats, monsters, etc...
  • The menu Music surprises me, I was expecting something more epic (because the intro put emphasis on battle)
  • Like the Level music
  • Loss/Gain are explicit.
  • Cards are awesome (It would be great to see the protagonist on tile, when applying the effect, especially when there is a cool-down)

Hope it helps


So cute and so clever! I love the art of the cards so so much! And The mechanic of flipping them is so cool!
I had some trouble understanding where the penalty points were coming from... Those red numbers seemed out of nowhere for a while. Then I made the connection with the tyrant power.
I miss the possibility to remove cards from my deck.
I lost at the last battle, because having to build a town was too expensive. I couldn't raise money and food, so I lost...
But I loved this game!
I wish the art style of the cards were more present in the game, instead of the 3D terrains, but I get it...
Also, how can I know how much cooldown time each card will take? It'll be nice to have this info, so I can plan better.
Great game, good job!


A child-like presentation turned into a very powerful intro after clicking past the Ukrainian flag. On top of that a talented body of work to invest in and explore. Well done. I hope to see many more things by you in the future.


Thank you for your kind words. I wanted to make a slight reference to the Russian threat in the game narrative. It was before the war. Now parallels are even more clear.

I would like to wish you and your friends and family health and safety, and I would also like to tell you that many people, all around the world, support you and your country. I live in the United States and have been praying for the Ukrainian people, and many of my family and friends have been doing so as well.


I really like this game, and it's very cozy. I enjoyed it a lot. Slava Ukraini!


This is a really cool idea! I like how the two sides of each card are related to each other in some way. It feels very natural to switch between a cute dog and a big bad wolf. I’m impressed this was a game jam entry!


Such a great idea for a game, and it plays well too!

@The Creators, I like the game a lot.  With your blessing, I would like to make a game inspired from this.  (I'm not asking to borrow any code or assets or anything). I would like to use some of the game mechanics from this game.  Would there be any problem with that on your end? 


You are free to do it.

Really great game, well done!
Art is amazing, the game is balanced (as far as i can tell), and the difficulty really ramps up for a great challenge.


The ingame text looks like below, hard to read.

Also, maybe i'm missunderstanding the game, but sometimes when i play a +2 cards, i don't get any cards (even if my deck counter is 2 or higher).

I love this game!  It's super fun. A unique game mechanic style. The art and music are pretty awesome, too. It's like a war version of Catan. Really well done, my man!


I realy like the art on the cards. I havent played the game tho,

Good Lock,


the only thing that i dont like the game was a bug; if you lower the damage, it ramdomises where the damage will be

in some cases, i lose cause the damage goes from 1 to 3 without i even notice


Good UI and nice made Tilemaps. On my screen the info text is quite blurry, dificult to read. 5 stars!


I'm really not good at the game, each level felt a bit long but overall that was a nice experience ! Love the artstyle, the game design and it feels very polished, even though I sometimes felt it was difficult (am I bad at this ? or is it unbalanced ? who knows !)

Overall great game, thanks for sharing and making it :D

Plaese develope this further to a full (steam) release! Its awsome.

i can't see the text or the cards

nice game

Really nice, simple strategy game! Thanks!

But it could use undo or something that would allow you to cancel your previous move, if you haven't ended turn yet. :)

Hey, the game looks fantastic. Unfortunately, I can't start the Mac Version. It states the file is broken. I also had to change the permissions of the .app-file via the terminal. I am on Big Sur 11.6. 

Great game! Unique and exciting card mechanics. Love it! 💖 Twice tried to finish ... so far failed 😁

6 hours playing... S2

This rules!

Loved it. Could easily be turned into a steam game. Very addicting.

Very nice game ! I finally finished it after several attempts :3 The graphics are adorable and the gameplay is nice, very enjoyable ^^
