Artix Entertainment, the indie game development studio that delivers download-free browser-based RPGs to 130 million users, is releasing its first ever card game, AdventureQuest Worlds – The Anything-Goes Battle On Battle Card Game. The game will be available at all U.S. Toys R Us stores nationwide starting Monday, April 18, 2011.
Each box contains one deck of 110 cards, which is all that is needed for 2 or 4 players to play. Each card features unique art from the hit MMORPG AdventureQuest Worlds.
The battle card game is a 2 or 4 player game (2 opposing players or 4 players forming two opposing teams) where the object is to be the last player or team alive. All players start the game with maximum health. During a single turn, one player uses his or her cards to attack and lower an opponent’s health. During the same turn, the opponent may use any card in hand to reduce, stop, or reflect the attack. The game is over when only one player – or one team of 2 players – has above zero health.
The gameplay is very exciting and unpredictable. In one turn you may find yourself one attack away from zero health. To save yourself, you could use the Magic Mirror card and redirect the attack back at your opponent. But if he or she has a counter card that will stop your mirror, you better hope you have a teleport card handy to get out of the way!
In addition to the deck of cards, each box also comes with a unique code that unlocks a shop full of exclusive, in-game collector’s items in AdventureQuest Worlds. The code unlocks the all-new powerful Card Clasher class, a rare weapon, and a rare cape. The Card Clasher class is a completely new in-game class that is color customizable and has its own unique battle system, never-before-seen in-game.
The card game will be available in Toys R Us stores in the U.S. beginning April 18th.
