Hi everyone!

I’ve released my card game Startup Grave on the Appstore, I hope you like it.

Startup Grave is a solitaire style card game with turn based battle system.

Maya and her friends founded a startup to find a gate to the Earth but monsters of the underworld are not happy with this attempt.

Startup Grave is a solitaire style card game with turn based battle system. Along 48 cards, we need to fight with underworld monsters that are trying to keep us from reaching the Earth. In this journey, prevent our health bar to run out and keep the monsters’ trouble bar low. You can either face the damage or challenge a monster to the battle. You can also be stronger in the battle by unlocking new cards using the points you win.

Every deck gives you 4-5 minutes playtime and it's designed to be played everywhere easily. Also, engaging gameplay you are looking for is more rich with catchy music and stylish character drawings.

Startup Grave gives you one more time feeling whether you are an experienced card game player or this is your first card game. Let’s jump to your journey with Maya and her friends!

    @unbeatenpixel congrats and bought! I'm going to try to play it this weekend! :smiley:

    I love the loading image, one question you have leant for a paid game instead of free with ADs, why? How is it working?

    Good luck!

    Thank you:)

    If a game has any chance to succeed as a premium title, I prefer to publish this way so I did my research and thought it might has a chance.

    It does not go very well for now, without a feature hard to gain much-needed exposure for premium title on mobile. Reviews helped it on Pocket Gamer and some other sites but couldn’t sustain the momentum.

    Now, I am working on difficulty options that was the most desired feature.

    @unbeatenpixel - Looks great mate! - Well done, and best of luck!

    I have one question though? - How the hell did you get Pocket Gamer to review/feature it please mate? - I've asked them for all 3 of my releases (including Courier Chaos), and they've not even responded, yet alone reviewed any of them... :frowning:

    Cheers!

    Thank you. I did not do anything special, just sent an email:) I'd venture to guess they get tons of emails in every day, so do not distress yourself, sometimes it is just luck.

    Updated 1.12 is available!

    Added 3 difficulty options.

    Take It Easy - If you want to play with a deck that is in your favor, this level is for you.

    Always Ready - You can continue playing at this level if difficulty level of the previous version is ideal for you.

    Hang In There - If you are looking for a more difficult option, this level is for you. There is also a chance of winning 50% more points!

    Another feedback was that the costs for the 'Fresh Blood' cards were high. We have also reduced the costs keeping in mind that they do not disrupt the balance of the game.

    Please let me know what you think.
