Some games look for success by focusing on a single gameplay element, while others toss a bunch of things together to see what sticks. Tiny Decks & Dungeons falls squarely in the latter category with a patchwork of familiar pieces stitched together into a bite-sized adventure. There's deck-building, monster raising, roguelite dungeon crawling, and strategic combat. But none of these elements are particularly deep. In its effort to be jack of all trades, Tiny Decks & Dungeons doesn't stand out in any single area, and yet it still works for the most part.

By combining these lighter, simplified pieces, Tiny Decks & Dungeons winds up offering a quick gameplay cycle. Pick up some cards. Tweak your deck, Dive into the dungeon for loot and creatures. Then head back to base to drop off and upgrade monsters before using your newfound loot to pick up more cards and start the process all over again. This is fun in short bursts, but can start to get repetitive quickly. This is made worse by the excruciatingly slow character progression. Toss in the constant push to buy whatever new item is in the shop or to watch ads for extra cards or revives, and it wears on your patience to play for any extended period. That's not to say Tiny Decks & Dungeons isn't a fun distraction when you've got a little time to kill. Just think of it as more of an entertaining snack as opposed to a buffet of adventure.
