In Revolve8, the player wields a deck of 8 cards, each with their own strengths and weaknesses. They then aim to destroy their opponent’s towers within the time limit of 3 minutes to achieve victory. The rules are simple, but the cards and powerful Hero skills they use opens up players to fun and strategic real-time duels. More game features below!

Strategically deep, real-time duels

Understand the strengths and weaknesses of your cards, classified into “Heroes”, “Minions”, “Buildings”, and “Magic”. Choose them wisely to form a strategy and win!

Guide your strategy with 3 deck types

When a player builds a deck, the game will automatically assign one of the three deck types to it as a way to help set up a strategy.

Assault Decks: Lets you go deep into enemy lines.
Siege Decks: Focuses on attacking long distance.
Counter Decks: Looks for opportunities to counterattack

Lead your team to victory with 2 skill types

Each Hero has a “Normal Skill” and a “Special Skill”. Special Skills can be used only once by the deck leader, whereas Normal Skills can be used every 30 seconds by one of the Heroes in the deck. These skills can potentially turn the battle around when used correctly.
