5 Realms of Cards is a unique solitaire game interweaving innovative game mechanics woven into a charming fairy-tale story. Players use solitaire talents to help a beautiful princess Jokerina to save her card realms from devastation and unveil the secret of the Fifth realm.
5 Realms of Cards, by Sugar Games, allows solitaire players to take part in the epic story assuming the roles of valiant heroes in this new solitaire gameplay.
The Story Outline
The game takes place in the realms standing for spades, diamonds, clubs and hearts. Under the reign of wise and graceful princess Jokerina, the flourishing land of the card realms knew nothing but peace. But an ancient evil has awakened and destroyed the sacred artifacts leaving the realms exposed to darkness. Your objective is to help Jokerina to restore the artifacts and prevent the card realms from falling into decay. When you save your four realms, the princess must travel to the mysterious Fifth realm.
Your journey takes you through the five card realms. Each realm contains 15 levels full of what the designers say is “addictive solitaire playing fun.” At each level your challenge is to complete a card puzzle as well as a task for you to achieve victory. As you complete each level, the scene hidden in the puzzle is increasingly restored, revealing the architecture as the artifact gradually regains its power. New challenges are presented in each new realm, after completing all the levels for the previous realm. As you complete different achievements, the trophies you are awarded are placed in a room that you can visit at any time.
The press release for 5 Realms of Cards says:
5 Realms of Cards is the evolution of a classic solitaire gameplay. This time you should prove your card mastery by building card chains. Link a card to an adjacent one which is one level higher or of lower rank. The longer the chain, the bigger the score you have. The game makers also created an assortment of special cards really spicing up the gameplay. For example, there is a card hiding its rank until you build a chain nearby, a card changing its suite each time you link a card into a chain and many other enchanted cards for creating a formidable challenge. Additionally you can choose between timed and untimed playing modes. Untimed mode is for a slow-paced solitaire entertainment and timed is for a bit more tricky solitaire experience.
The fantasy world created in 5 Realms of Cards shines with vivid colors and refined graphics. You will be amazed at the beauty of each realm after you restore it by completing levels. As for the solitaire itself, the motion is liquid smooth and you get a feeling that you are playing with visually real and solid cards. The game also has soothing music sounding like a balm to the soul. All this along with a compelling storyline and innovative gameplay creates an immersive atmosphere, letting the player fully enjoy the new incarnation of solitaire.
