Title
Solitairica is a Golf Solitaire influenced card game with an RPG “theme”. You match sequences of cards, but gain coins, or mana: Attack, Defence, Agility, Willpower depending on the colour of the card.

You draw a single card if you cannot progress, this is when the enemy draws and performs their ability. Some of their abilities have a charge time, so you sometimes have a few turns before you get hit, so you have a chance to prepare to counter it.

Enemies can attack or give you status. If you lose all your health then it is Game Over. Some hinder your card matching like adding armour or changing the face value, stun you (freeze your abilities), add poison which deals damage each turn. Sometimes they can be helpful, like giving you mana.

Your Attack spells are extremely useful to mop up the final cards because you remove them without having to match a card. Defence protects your health. Agility modifies the cards. Willpower can heal, or do attacks.

You use your coins to buy equipable items, or new magic spells. Shops progressively stock better items further in. You can equip up to 6 spells and items, but some slots are blocked until you buy upgrades. You upgrade your decks with the premium currency you earn (no real money microtransactions here), or purchase different themed decks.

There are 18 rounds. Each enemy is assigned a few various traits. You could adjust your skills slightly to counter their abilities.

The problem with the game is that it is mainly based by luck. There’s a bit of strategy with your choice of Items and Spells, but ultimately it comes down to luck. The final part of the battle grinds to a halt because there’s fewer cards to match, so you end up drawing cards and taking the hits and it is frustrating being whittled down to 0 health and sometimes there’s not much you can do, aside from strategically used spells.

When I felt like I had a great set of upgrades and spells that allowed me to heal and put a large defence - I felt sure I could finish it. Then I got destroyed in 3 turns. One turn he burned each column of cards, and if the turn ends with a card on fire, then you receive 1 damage. So that was 7 damage in a single turn! On his turn he hit me for 2 damage plus stun which meant I couldn’t use my abilities, so I had to clear 4 cards in order to survive a turn... but I still couldn’t match even 1. He also had an attack that deals 7 damage. Seems impossible to me.

I played for around 5 hours over 3 runs. Each run is a bit too long and you don’t get enough of the premium currency to unlock the extra decks and upgrades to provide enough motivation and gameplay variety for repeated plays.
