LabyrinthI have a hunch that the title caught your eye, didn't it? I have to admit, Labyrinth sounds promising, and from what I've seen so far in various gameplay videos, it seems to deliver on that promise. So, what is Labyrinth? Well, if you were hoping for a game starring David Bowie, sorry to disappoint. Labyrinth is a hybrid of sorts that blends CCG, tactical RPG, and classic dungeon building. You build parties of 3 heroes, each with their own card deck, and then you raid dungeons built by other players. As you level up and grow your collection, you can build and expand your own dungeons and defend them against other players' heroes. On offense, you get various cards that help you build your heroes' decks; on defense, you build decks for your dungeon Boss that include minions and traps.

According to the game's developers, they are hoping that by including a turn-based 3D combat system, they will bring more action and tactical thinking into the battlefield and in the process move away from traditional CCG rules and play (although 3D combat based on CCG rules reminds me a bit of Loot & Legends [Free (HD)] and Card Hunter). What should make the game stand out among similar games is the dungeon building part. The multiplayer part of the game is asynchronous, and you get to attack someone's dungeon while they are not online, a bit like Clash of Clans in a way.

When you attack, you have to overcome various encounters set up by the dungeon builder (in other words, you'll have to beat his deck in 3D combat). The good thing is that you don't lose gold if the raid is successful but, rather, just rank levels. I'm intrigued by what I've heard so far, and I wonder how the various systems will end up blending (or not blending). The game will of course be F2P and will be coming to iOS and Android at some point in the future.

        Damn, can't believe I missed this awesome Bowie (from Labyrinth) tribute!

  • JudasKain

    If it's anything like loot & legends, I'll grab it!

  • Based Xatu

    Oh this looks delicious.

    Turn based card playing is so 2015. In 2016 it's all about realtime card playing. #Royale #kappa

  • hizaira

    Wow looks yummy!

  • Morgan01

    Sounds interesting. However, F2P usually means P2W with the players spending the most money walking all over other players. That part? Not so interesting.

    • speetz

      It's a ccg, so it basically has to be f2p. You buy cards. I guess you could pay once and buy with in game currency but that sounds like a ridiculous system to build and balance, not to mention tedious all around

  • heretikeen

    PvP and F2P. Count me out.

  • Milotorou

    This looks way too good.... I sure hope it turns out good !

  • speetz

    Sounds pretty rad; just be careful comparing anything to CoC even if it's just one part of one mechanic ( the fact you can attack someone's dungeon when they are offline, probably with minimal loss or certain types of benefits etc) So many people jump on that kind of thing around here, even though a game that's CCG basically has to be f2p. Dunno if I would wanna play a nonf2p CCG; would be tedious and weird lol.
