About Monster Train

About this game

Hell has frozen over. Only you can protect the final burning pyre from the forces of heaven and restore the inferno. Monster Train brings a new strategic layer to roguelike deck building, with three vertical play fields to defend.

No playthrough is ever the same

You’ll never play the same deck twice!

* over 220 cards
* 5 monster clans with each very different gameplay
* Each clan has 10 levels to unlock, bringing new cards to your deck
* Upgrade your clan specific champion multiple times
* 88 artifacts
* Upgrade any card twice
* More than 21 unique random events
* 25 covenant (difficulty) levels

Visit powerful locations

To take back hell, you’ll need to power up. Choose your route carefully, different locations give different benefits; upgrade your champion, recruit powerful units, upgrade cards, gain passive bonuses or duplicate any card in your deck.

Strategize to fit your playstyle

With five clans to choose from, each has its own unique and surprising gameplay. Pick your primary and supporting clan to gain access to all cards from both. During your run you will be able to improve cards by mixing and matching upgrades to open up new roads to victory. You can even duplicate your favourite card at special map nodes before facing off against the final boss.

Multiplayer

HELL RUSH
In the Hell Rush multiplayer mode, eight players compete in a frantic real time contest. Each player has the same resources and opponents to create a level playing field. With the clock ticking it’s a test of who can make the best decisions under pressure. Only a true speed demon can remain undefeated.

DAILY CHALLENGE
Take on a new challenge every day with a hugely modified run due to gameplay mutators. Compete globally and against friends, and climb the leaderboards with a skill-focused scoring system.

CUSTOM CHALLENGE
Design your own unique challenge and share it with friends. Each custom challenge has its own leaderboard so you can send your friends straight to hell.

Fun for a while but way too easy too last in the long run. Very few viable strategies, but they are easy to pull off. Some strategies just require 1-2 cards too win easily. Requires minimal skill.

This game is Awesome. This is possibly one of my favorite Roguelike games. It's almost absurb how powerful you can make your team, but only if you find the right synergies and the process of finding them is quite fun.

Brilliant roguelike deck builder that takes inspiration from Slay the Spire while adding its own twist: 3 floors of combat and instead of playing 1 character you'll play a champion and various units under one of several clans. Your cards can be upgraded and infused into each other offering superior depth and replayability. Recommended for anyone who likes deck building strategy games.

Very cool take on the rogue card game. Lots of possibilities and you will need them if you wanna try and beat the hardest difficulties.

Monster Train is 100% great. I loved Slay the Spire, and have played a LOT of Slay the Spire knockoffs. Like, probably 8-10. Some are almost direct clones, some are more different, but not a one of them is nearly as good as StS. Except for Monster Train. I'd say Monster Train is its equal. It helps that it's very different from StS, which means it's very much worth owning both, which I'm glad I now do. Compared to StS, Monster Train is fewer, longer fights, and more rewards for them. I love that after every fight, you get an option of two different reward paths, each of which offer their own set of options. It's incredibly addictive and compelling, where as soon as you finish you want to play one more run. I blinked and hours had gone by. I love that it's a "stop anywhere" sort of game, where you can go away mid-game if something pops up to interrupt. For a while this was my lunchtime game -- I can't play any action-based game while eating, so this is perfect. I can see that there's a lot of levels of strategy I just haven't understood yet, because there are over a dozen difficulty levels above what I'm having trouble with. And there's a nice variety of cards and that "Oooh, I hope I get X, it would combo perfectly!" feeling. Two thumbs up.

Monster Train is a fun deckbuilder that takes what Slay the Spire established in years prior and puts quite a bit of spin on it. Highly recommended if you enjoyed Slay the Spire or similar deckbuilders.

An engrossing card-based, combo-crazy roguelike.

A highly replayable roguelike deckbuilding game where you will have to build overpowered combos in order to complete the increasingly difficult challenges. Each run lets you increase the game difficulty, from a starting point of 0 for the tutorial to a maximum of 25. Additional daily challenges and user created runs give an extremely high level of replayability. You choose two hellish tribes out of a total unlockable of of five, and the cards of these tribes will be added to your draftable pool. The card assignment is semi random, so you will have to adapt your strategy to the cards that are presented to you and based on the upcoming challenges. I really enjoy the game, more than I expected. Highly recommended!

Very fun game. You can mix and build lots of different strategies, playing in random is not even boring since you find out different possibilities. I really enjoy playing it
