There are also 23 cute companions to collect and 45 glacial items and clunkers to experiment with.
In Wildfrost, players will build their card deck of charming companions and powerful elemental items in an attempt to take back a world that has fallen to the Wildfrost. Only the small civilisation of Snowdwell and its survivors remain as the final stronghold against an eternal winter. Use strategy and card-building skills to reach the Sun Temple and banish the Wildfrost once and for all!
Throughout the game, players will have the chance to recruit new card companions and gift them charms to enhance their powers. Return to Snowdwell after each run and rebuild the town, unlock more cards and encounter new challenges and events for an adventure that has endless replayability.
A perfect mix of deckbuilding and adventure. Wildfrost lets you test your card battling skills as you fight to save the village of Snowdwell.

The opportunity to plan ahead using the ‘counter dynamic system’ to exploit foes and frosty monsters’ weaknesses!
New cards and a new way to tackle each battle to collect during each encounter. The way you strategise each fight is up to you!
Endless replayability with new daily challenges and runs.
