If you are not familiar with game jams, let me explain. A game jam is a game development contest. Contestants are presented with game jam theme and have limited time (usually very, very short) to develop a game. You might ask “Why would someone do that?”. Game jams are part of the game industry for years and are pretty much a game development sport. Some people do it just for fun, some use it as a learning experience, some participate in game jams to meet other game developers and some just like the rush of an imminent deadline. And then there is a possibility, that your game will be so good/popular, that it’ll be worth turning into a full game (Don’t Starve, Super Hot, Snake Pass, …)

Path of Revenge is a combat card game. There are five levels of increasing difficulty. Every new level will add more powerful cards for you and your enemy. Complete five levels to get your revenge.

Healing property of cards can restore your health, but if you are attacked while healing, you will only heal 1 health. Cards can also combine different properties (cover attack => 2 cover, 2 attack). Your goal is to kill your enemy before he kills you. Each round has to moves. Offense means, that you place your card first. Defense means that enemy places card first and you can react to it.
