Dungeon Solitaire

This game is a mashup of Solitaire and a Dungeon Crawler. You can play the competition version or the latest version online.

This game was developed for Chrome and has sound effects and music.

How to play

The player must collect cards by killing enemies spread throughout a dungeon, and use them to complete a game of Solitaire by interacting with the walls of the card room.

The player can carry up to 13 cards simultaneously but they must stack like an upside down solitaire stack; if the top card in the player's inventory is a red 6, the next card must be a black 7, for example.

To aid the player, there are power-ups strewn about the world. Yellow stars increase the player's max health. Blue plusses fully heal the player. Purple stars upgrade the player's weapon.


There are three different kinds weapon that the player can have:

  • Fists do a single hitpoint of damage and have a range of 1 block.
  • The dagger does twice as much damage with half the range.
  • The pistol does a single hitpoint of damage, but at long range.

Player Death

If the player dies, all power-ups are lost and the player respawns in the card room. Note however that the player keeps all the cards that they are carrying when they die.
