Marvel Snap is a card strategy game with dynamic gameplay, using the full potential of the characters and villains created by Marvel.
Although the title is a representative of the CCG (Collectible Card Game) genre, several elements were implemented in it differently from many other popular productions of this type. Although the game is also observed from top-down view and you arrange your cards on a visible board, it is not divided into distinct zones, and the gameplay itself is much more dynamic. Each round takes about three minutes, and players don't wait for an opponent's move to make their own, but take simultaneous actions. Thus, in addition to strategic thinking, it is also important to make quick decisions and adapt to changes in the balance of power on the board. The decks with which we play duels are built from twelve cards among all those we have unlocked so far. This makes their formation faster and easier, while maintaining the strategic depth typical of the genre. All cards have their strength expressed numerically, as well as additional effects, released in appropriate situations (such as when we place cooperating cards next to each other).
Each duel takes place in three locations. To win, we must gain the upper hand in two of them. A fight is won when, after playing all the cards, their summed strength is higher than that of the opponent. We achieve this by judiciously eliminating the opponent's characters, deriving attacks with their characters having higher coefficients. For victory we receive points called Cosmic Cubes - as we fight the battle their number increases, and additionally we can increase it on our own (if we decide that we are close to winning and it is worth taking the risk). For the points earned we unlock more cards and place them in our collection.
The game is designed for two-person play over a network and is entirely based on 1vs1 duels. We can fight both training and ranking clashes.
The cards and game boards have been made in a colorful style, and all characters have been recreated faithfully with the comic book originals. Some of the cards come in different variants, referring to the appearance of characters from specific movies or series, while all of them have their variations presented by a different style of execution: some were realized in cell shading technique, others in pixel art, etc. At the time of the game's release, there were 150 cards in total, and the number began to increase with subsequent seasons.
