Paperback developed by Briogame a word of cards
Each game of Paperback where you start with a deck of letter cards, significant aim is to create words from them. The story behind this is yor’re an aspiring author trying to make it in a tough publishing world, against many opponent authors. Each time when you create word you earn money, which can be used later to buy better letters to add to your deck.
The game features one letter tiles but many others have two letters which must be used in the order they’re displayed. This makes things bit diffrent and little trickier but also gives you more scoring opportunities. Slowly, when you observe progression in levels by earning better scores you can buy fame cards which works as wild cards, which allows you to use them as any letter you want. At the end of the game, the player with the highest level of fame wins.
The fun part is there is twist on the word genre, although it takes a little time to really understand the scoring going on. Like some cards also offer bonuses or can only be used in certain situations. Adaption is everything here. Muck like with scrabble, longer words aren’t always automatically better. Atleast, not when you’re dealing with a special tile or two. That means it’s a little tougher to think through. While you might only have five letters plus a bonus to work with, ther’e more things to learn in depth. The some tiles offering two letters, the potential is vast, but mastering in card game is much tougher than generally done in scrabble ways.
All these sounds pretty impressive and appealing. You’re just writing novels and whhen you’re stucked in between ther’s Kitsch charm going on here, as reflected by the game’s visuals.
The game doesn’t support online multiplayer, this is bit bad news. Instead you have to pass your IOS device around between 4 players or compete with the AI. The AI offers different difficulty levels, but its difficult to manage and hard to find important diffrence between them. The scoring system is pretty tough here because complexity of game increases. And little monotomous playing against soulless AI. Also passing the device between friends which is good idea, but being able to play from a distance would immediately give paperback more acceptance.
Creating complex words is certainly welcome here and increses the game’s significance. And you can observe lots of potential involved in game. Being so is restrictive in terms of not reaching its true heights. This game is a ideal for more tricky strategic word gaming experience. Instead, it’s one you’ll save for when friends are visiting but nothing more than that.
