Bless the indie developers who are determined to take ideas that may sound a bit crazy in concept and run with them, revealing potential new avenues of play to enjoy! Card Shark is just such a game. In principle it’s a game revolving around gambling and cards, but how you play works in a completely different direction than you’d expect for the most part. In terms of play, the best thing to describe it as is a memory game, oddly enough. Learning numerous tricks and techniques as you try to stay a few steps ahead of suspicious aristocrats, this is a game where you’ll need every ounce of intense focus and concentration to quickly assess and understand the hand or hands on the table and then properly convey that information to your accomplice, ensuring underhanded victory. While at first this may not seem to be too taxing, the further you move along the more demanding it becomes, always raising the stakes and effort higher, giving you that thrill of being on both the edge of wild success and utter failure. It absolutely won’t be a guaranteed success for everyone, but if you’re thirsting for something that dares to be different it’s absolutely worth your time to check out!
