DescriptionSpectromancer is a card collection game similar to Magic the Gathering. Players use cards to combat each other. Winning duels grants players new cards.
Each player plays as a mage. The game features six different mage classes (Cleric, Mechanician, Necromancer, Chaosmaster, Dominator and Illusionist). Different cards represent different spells and summons the player cast. The game is played in turns and each turn the players can place new cards on the virtual table and summoned creatures will attack enemy creatures. Spells can also be cast for additional damage. Different types of units do different types of damage (fire, water, air, earth, plus one class dependent type). Different creatures also have different resistances against these types of damage.
Players can play against each other over the Internet or against an AI computer player.
