Play OverviewPlay Overview

Isle of Swaps is a card-based battle game that recreates the trading card and sticker book playground craze. You collect packs of cards and arrange your collection in a binder, trading away duplicates for new cards, and perfecting your deck to win head-to-head battles. It stands out for its detailed recreation of card collecting, from hand-drawn playmats and trading cards with friends to the fierce competition for the best cards and strongest deck.

You play a young student at a school and compete against your classmates in the Critter Trading Card Game. Starting with a small deck of cards, you must defeat your opponents in turn-based combat, employing your cards to maximum effect to gain an advantage. There are three classes of cards available to use: Critters, which are the characters you attack your opponents with; Skill cards, which strengthen your Critter when used, and Sticker cards, which offer continuous benefits. Each of these cards comes in different types, such as Aqua and Blaze, and there are different synergies, strengths, and weaknesses between these different types.

As you defeat more opponents, you earn new cards and packs to add to your collection. If you get duplicates, you can swap and trade them with other students, with some cards being more highly sought after than others. When you lose a match, you have to start working your way up the ladder to the top again, but can now use any new cards you obtained right from the start. Developing a balanced deck of cards that works well against all different types of opponent decks is essential, and experimenting with different tactics and strategies is key to success.

The result is a game that captures the spirit of the school playground trading card games, with excited opponents, card trading and hunting, and imaginatively drawn battle mats. The battles themselves are fun, but the real driver is filling up your binder with all the different cards.
