City-Builder + Card Game Concrete Jungle Is Really Good

City-Builder + Card Game Concrete Jungle Is Really Good

So that we're all on the same page, I will crudely reduce the excellent card game Concrete Jungle down to this: it's SimCity vs Tetris vs Scrabble. Which sounds weird, I know, but trust me, it works.

If I was going to explain everything about the game — especially the stuff I like — I'd be typing all week, so in the video below you'll find me taking a quick little look, running you through the basics.

The tl;dr for those who can't watch the clip is that you build city blocks like SimCity, you arrange them to clear lines like Tetris, and you need to be aware/take advantage of the numerical value of tiles like Scrabble. Oh, and it's excellent. And looks great to boot.

Concrete Jungle is out now on Steam, and it's pretty cheap to boot. Sadly, this is not part of the game's soundtrack.

Speaking of the soundtrack, as as someone to had to record a clip and put it on YouTube, here's something (the "STREAM-SAFE MUSIC" option) that every video game should include as standard from now until the end of days:

    Awesome, about time this got a shout out. I backed on KS back when it was up and I felt I got my moneys worth just playing the beta. Now this full version has completely blown my socks off. How can one guy make something so clever and fun??

    Anyway, highly recommend this to fans of puzzle games and simcity type games - although be aware it's WAY more of a puzzle game than anything else.

    Do you mean Nerdcubed?

    I wasn't aware Nerd³ worked for Kotaku, seeing as Luke Plnkett claims he made that video.

    I didn't know that NerdCubed's real name is Luke Plunkett - I always thought it was Daniel Hardcastle

    like, wtf?!

    Just want to point out, the video on this page was created by Daniel Hardcastle, aka NerdCubed, not Luke Plunkett. At least give credit where credit is due.

    um, that's not my video
