As in a traditional deckbuilder, players collect cards that they can use in the different challenges. You can upgrade the cards by inserting gems to earn unique bonuses. In addition to these cards, players can create dazzling team synergies using each hero’s specific abilities. These abilities are found in a skill tree, and can be unlocked through a disruptive mechanism: the Tower Deck.
Unlike other games where the most frequent strategy is streamlining your deck. Roguebook wants players to build a deck using as many cards as possible. While increasing the team’s offensive and defensive capabilities. With a careful strategy, wise moves and a little bit of luck. This is where players can create an invincible heroic duo!
