Hell Shuffle
Hell Shuffle Steam

Hell Shuffle is a combination of turn-based strategy and rogue-like deck building. This game allows you to choose one of three factions, create a deck, use various talents, set up a squad, and more.

The game recently received Update 5 that introduced new difficulty levels and improvements.

New Features

If Hell Shuffle is too easy for you, then the latest update might just change your mind. Experience the two new difficulty levels added to the game: Hard and Hell.

What can you expect when you set the difficulty higher? Well, the overall health of enemies and the damage they dish out are increased. Moreover, when the enemy hits you, you will gain two random curses out of the possible 12 (for Hard) or 18 (for Hell).

The user interface also received some improvements. For instance, a camera shake is added to up your gaming experience. Several cards received visual updates too, and bosses are now bigger, making them look more formidable.
