It’s hard to believe that it’s been three and a half years since the release of Card Crawl, the game that put developer TinyTouchTales aka Arnold Rauers on the map. The breaking down of the mechanics of a dungeon crawling game and then building them into a solitaire-style card game was nothing short of genius, and perhaps it doesn’t feel like Card Crawl released all that long ago because it’s been a mainstay on my device ever since, receiving frequent visits whenever I have a moment of free time to kill. Well in celebration of Halloween today, and for today only, Card Crawl is currently free for the first time ever. Sure it’s been as cheap as a dollar before, but this is FREE. That’s even LESS than a dollar!
If you for some reason need even more convincing to go download a free game, then definitely check out our original review of Card Crawl from when it released, though know it has received quite a bit of new content by way of updates since then. For an even more comprehensive assessment of the game, our own Shaun Musgrave gave Card Crawl the Classic Reload treatment last year. The one catch is that since this is a one-day only freebie, and TinyTouchTales is located in Europe, that could mean we only have a few hours to grab this for free before it jumps back up in price. Curse you, time zones! So if you’re at all interested in dungeon crawlers, RPG mechanics, and card games, don’t delay in grabbing Card Crawl for free while you can.
