The Thursday Find - Miracle Merchant

I mean, yes, if you look at it in a logical way, I did miss Thursday's Thursday Find post. But you know what that means? You're going to get two pieces of excellent AppSpy content today. Aren't you a bunch of lucky sausages?

If you've never been here on a Thursday before, or on a Friday posing as a Thursday, the Thursday Find is when I tell you about one game that you definitely should be playing this week. It's all part of the service that we provide here at AppSpy.

Anyway, you can click on the emboldened name of the game below to download it. And feel free to tell me I'm wrong in the comments at the bottom of the article. I'll almost certainly ignore you, but it might make you feel important for a bit all the same.

Miracle Merchant

The third game in Tiny Touch Tales series of solitaire card games. This one sees you running a potion shop, combining ingredients to keep your customers happy. Or at the very least, alive.

Your deck of cards is split into four coloured piles. These are your ingredients. You've got a stream of adventurers coming through your door, and each of them wants a potion with a specific ingredient in it.

There are bonuses to be earned too, from creating potions made from different combinations of cards, and from adding a customer's favourite ingredient into the mix.

There's a surprising depth here, and a tight compulsion loop that you're highly likely to get tangled up in. Plus the game looks lovely, all cartoon monsters and hand-drawn potions.

There are secondary quests to complete, and plenty more going on under the surface. And while it's a departure from Card Crawl and Card Thief, it still feels like it's part of the same universe.

Basically if you're looking for a card game to play on your own, that's full of charm and great ideas, then you should grab this one as soon as is humanly possible.
