Tips and tricks:
The following are tips and tricks for the smooth gameplay.
- Know Your Enemy
Fortunately, you can read what an enemy does if you tap and hold on to them. Remember to keep your finger down or else you’ll attack the enemy instead. The worst types of enemies you can encounter, in my opinion, are those who stun you or leave you poisoned. The stun will make you lose a turn and the poison takes away your life points every turn.
- Get Rich and Get Out
If you find yourself in a situation where you know you’re going to lose, you might as well make the most out of it. The gold you collect on every level, whether you win or lose, stays with you. So, if you know you’re about to lose, don’t just quit. Keep playing as long as you can and make your goal to gather as much gold as possible.
- Avoid Buying One-Use Items
In a world like Card of Darkness, the shop can become your best friend. But you need to know how to use it. I found that the best way to spend my money was buying items that had permanent effects, like Weapon Beckon Upgrade or the Token of Muster Upgrade, which give you items with a higher power on each dungeon.
My advice is that you focus on upgrading these permanent-effect items first. Especially the item that lets you add an extra card of darkness when going into a dungeon. Items that you can only use once are good, but in a game where everything is randomly generated; your item might go to waste because of a bad start.
