Wildfrost is a roguelike card game where players will aim to build the strongest deck possible to defeat the Frost Guardian. At the start of each run, you’ll have to choose a Tribe Leader, who will have randomly generated skills and stats that provide unique benefits in battle.
Combat in Wildfrost is turn-based and each card has a counter assigned to them, and they can only attack once the correct number of turns have passed. This creates an extra element of strategy for the player as you’ll always have to keep an eye on your enemies’ counter numbers during battle.
The card order is also an important factor in Wildfrost’s combat, enemy cards placed at the front of the field will always attack first so placing tanky companions in the line of fire will be essential to soaking up the damage.
Outside of combat, players can bolster their deck by recruiting new companions, and constructing buildings in the town of Snowdwell to unlock even more cards and cosmetics.
