Well haven't played solitaire or similar card games in a while, but Shadowhand was quite pleasant surprise. It did look pretty solid so decided to give it a try. 20 hours later and all gold stars on normal difficulty can say it was quite good time passer. There for sure is more challenge with some levels included as layout of packs and cards can really play ton how it will end, so RNG tends to play it's issues here, but characters skills, items do help quite much to deal with it, so Shadowhand doesn't become nuisance. Also one can have up to 10 special cards to play in hand to deal with tricky situations.
Levels are mainly two types, either solitary solitaire where one needs to get all of the cards from table, or maybe not? Keening on requirements for chapter to be filled among from many levels. And other being duels where card combo build up makes hits open for both sides and higher combos increase damage output radically. Some pocked items are included with good lot of different status effects and so on.
So what can say about Shadowhand, it has basic solitaire aspect, but it has very well mended to become RPG along with having several different ideas applied to make the solitaire part more interesting. Did highly enjoy this title and it gave good 20 hours or playtime among it's 22 chapter story.

Simple and straight forward card game, solitaire-like rules with RPG abilities and stats. RNG can really screw you sometimes but overall if you like card games this is a quick and enjoyable one.

Honestly it's not worth the full price, seems like 2 to 3 dollars tier game with discount, However, It an Epic Solitaire game with good story and amazing background atmospheric music. I liked mostly the duels and the variety of weapons along with the buffs and debuffs cards. I'd rate it 8/10.
With that said, The game difficulty doesn't scale correctly, Like it's very unbalanced in *hard mode* and in *normal mode* in some aspects, In case you wanted to snowball stats and items from *normal mod* and overlap it in hard mode you will face the following problems.
-The level up progression stops , (You can't have max stats) which lead to failure in achieving chapter goals and you will be stuck since you won't have enough points to level up the attributes. For instance, If you didn't level up the "Gold attribute" you will wind up stuck in the chapter, It's useless attribute and a waste but then you will have some chapter require an insane amount of gold to pick up and it's only works if you maxed out the gold attribute, If you maxed it out, You will get stuck in other chapters and so on.
-The store stops adding items so if you screwed up in normal mode, you won't progress in hard mode.
Play it on normal mode or hard mode without overlap and you will manage to beat it.

I got this on sale for under $4. It plays like many similar BigFish/mobile-style solitaire games—you're given some kind of funky layout with extra gimmicks like key and lock cards to manage, and there are abilities on top which charge as you clear cards away. The duels play the same way, but there's an AI. This can make you forego larger plays to dry up the combo possibilities for the CPU, so it adds an appreciable (if thin) layer of depth. And you can utilize the RPG mechanics to get ahead when luck doesn't go your way.
If you want a unique solitaire game on PC, this one's puh-retty good.

Blasted through the game at a fast pace and it still was about 24hrs of game time. It was so addictive and fun that I beat it in only a couple sittings (8-12 hours each). Challenging at times, but there is strategy to it too. Blasted through the game at a fast pace and it still was about 24hrs of content

I wish I could give it a "Meh" rating because it's not the most original idea out there (If you played GSN Tripeaks or Grand Harvest, you've already seen it all, except for maybe the RPG mechanics plus the fact that this game isn't a predatory money pit). I gave it a 'yes' merely for the fact that you can play at your own pace and not worry about 'running out of lives'.

More casual than you might expect, but still fun.
The basic gameplay is very simple, kind of like Solitare, match cards that are one digit higher/lower or you have to pass your turn.
But they added some glitter to that basic gameplay. You have powers that charge up by matching X cards, you have passive abilities, and you have ability scores that give you %chance of beneficial effects.
You also have lots of equipment (mostly armor) and weapons to choose from, as well as 3-4 consumable item slots, but these are only used in combat.
The combat is the same gameplay, but you also have to kill a foe using your weapon(s), which charge up just like the powers. Each piece of equipment gives you a minor bonus and some of them synergize when used together. There's usually not much "choice" though, as you receive specific equipment at specific points as you progress through the game, and there are usually some clear top-picks.
The story is terrible. Written for soccer-moms and screaming GIRL-POWER with its female protagonist beating up all those nasty MALES. It's so pandering and offensive.
Re: the game's description, I wouldn't call it an RPG at all, and there's barely any strategy. There's zero "sneaking" except some gear gives you %chance to act first in combat, which hardly matters since you just take turns.
Summary, I had enough fun to keep playing it, so I guess I can vote it up, but it's pretty low-quality.
