No Money, No Problem: Dengen Chronicles

Title: Dengen Chronicles
Developer: Mangatar
Platforms: PC, Browser
Price: Free to play
Trading card games have been around for decades; I remember the Pokemon, Digimon, and Yugioh crazes when I was a kid. The recently released free-to-play Dengen Chronicles mixes card-based battles with manga art, and RPG elements.
Choose your bloodline, be it ninja or robot, and then you'll be thrust into various battles against varied and challenging opponents. Each battle, you choose from a selection of offensive and defensive actions, as well as a number of stat boosting or support ability cards, and then engage. These battles play out in short comic panels, and victory grants you currency to upgrade your characters. The RPG elements had some depth to the gameplay, allowing you to equip gear and level up, and the art is vibrant and stylish.
I'm that well versed in the card game genre, but the game was fun and offers the play some strategic depth thanks to the gear and skills. You can download Dengen Chronicles from Desura or play the game in your browser here.
