Iris and the Giant is a mix of collectible card game (CCG) and roguelike. This is the debut work of French creator Louis Rigaud, who released an early version of the game in the form of a free browser game. The full edition was published by the Goblinz studio.

Plot

In the game we play the role of the title Iris, who goes with her father to swimming lessons. Still on her way to the place, the heroine feels that something is on her heart, although she does not know what. After all, at the pool, the girl can't stop the feeling of depression that almost literally floods her. So Iris goes on a journey into her own mind to face her fears.

Mechanics

The game in Iris and the Giant is based on turn-based battles. Our goal is to break through hordes of enemies (including bosses) and reach the top of the stairs leading to the next location. In clashes we must be careful about the health of the heroine, represented by her willpower. In combat, we use a deck of cards that we earn for victories and find in crates scattered around. It is thanks to the cards that we can perform all actions: attacks from a distance or close up, attacks on single enemies or the whole row, etc. In case of a failure, we loose almost the entire progress to-date, and we must start again.

In addition to the cards, we will also get some help with wigs that give us various bonuses, for example, more health points. In addition to each approach can unlock additional support. Stars spread across levels allow you to fill in a special bar when you die, allowing you to receive bonus gifts that go on to the next session. In turn, for various achievements we unlock friends with useful skills. Finally, during the adventure we have a chance to find souvenirs that can turn the game upside down. Thanks to them, playing certain types of cards will not finish our turn, in the chests you will find other loot than usual, etc.

Technical aspects

Iris and the Giant operates in a two-dimensional visual setting, with flat, paper characters and monsters.
