Cardlock is a deckbuilding tactics roguelike inspired by Dream Quest.

Fight your way through floors of enemies, collecting cards to add to each of your characters' decks.

The game features 3 player classes, 28 enemy types, 40 different cards and, of course, daily runs.


Left Mouse Button: Select character, Play card, Select tile

Right Mouse Button (Hold): Discard selected card (costs 1 action)


  • Each of your characters can move once and play one card per turn, click a character to select them & click cards to play them.
  • Reaction Cards (Blue) cannot be played manually. Instead, they will automatically play when certain conditions are met. For example, the "Counter" card plays when an enemy melee attacks the character.
  • Levelling up your characters will restore them to full health - you can use this to your advantage.

Very fun game! I found myself lost in if for hours as I struggled to defeat all the monsters on the first floor XD

Amazing! Aside from sound effects, of course, I only wish that the graphics were all doubled in size.

I should say that the game is unbelievably difficult and that it would make more sense to start with 60 health instead of 30 given how much splash damage and how many repeated attacks the enemies can do...

Wow the level of polish on here is awesome. Easy to pick up and fun to play. I made the mistake of skipping an entire level cuz I had a quick route to the stairs. Reader beware, this was a mistake. Seems like the difficulty between nodes on a level can vary pretty widely but, that's the roguelike spirit aint it. Awesome work!

Great Game

Nice game! I really like the visuals!
