Handleabra Games and Indie Boards and Cards have teamed to bring the latter’s hit Aeon’s End to Android, iOS, and PC. While the game has been available for a short while on Steam the app has just been released as an app. In the game you’ll deck-build in order to protect the city of Gravehold and defeat the monstrous nemesis hell bent on the city’s destruction. Aeon’s End is available for $8.99 on iOS and Android or for $19.99 for PC through Steam.
About the game:
Aeon’s End is a deck-building game where you create a team of up to 4 mages who will fight cooperatively to defeat whichever Nameless nemesis has come through the breach today. You begin with a starting deck of 10 cards, with 5 in hand. Each turn you play gems to gain aether, which is used to buy new gems and relics, learn new spells, and increase your casting potential by opening additional breaches. You can also play relics to give yourself or your allies a boost. Then prep spells to your opened or focused breaches to be ready to cast them on your subsequent turns.
What makes Aeon’s End unique is how it uses randomness. Unlike other deck-building games, players do not shuffle their deck when it runs out. The order in which you discard is preserved, so plan your discards carefully to set yourself up for subsequent turns.
Instead, randomness in Aeon’s End comes in the order of turns. At the start of each round, the turn order deck is shuffled to determine the order of play. Will the nemesis go twice in a row, pushing back the mages’ defense? Will the mages get 4 turns in a row to set up for the coming onslaught? It can be hard to know what’s coming next when you are deep in the melee!
Finally, there’s the city of Gravehold. The breach mages of Aeon’s End are not just fighting for their own survival, but the survival of all of humanity, and the Nameless know it. If Gravehold is ever reduced to 0 life, the mages have lost and humanity is but a memory.
