GDC 2013: Checking Out ‘Rocket Patrol,’ A Turn-Based Card Strategy Game

If you’re into traditional card games, you should throw GRL Games‘s Rocket Patrol a look. Influenced, in part, by an ancient garage sale find, it’s a retro-infused sci-fi turn-based strategy game that pits users against each other in a battle to grab enough “light year" cards to cross the finish line. Of course, players can also toss “delay" cards at each other, slowing each others ships or straight-up breaking components.

Creator Graham Devine came by and showed off the game to us today. In the video, he walks us through the basics of the play, as well as teases its future as a platform. It’s pretty cool.

Rocket Patrol is due out in the next few weeks for the iPad as a free download.
