About Alina of the Arena

Developed by PINIX, in Alina of the Arena you play as the titular character, Alina. A gladiator that must fight for a bloodthirsty crowd to survive. With the introduction of roguelike deckbuilding and hex-based tactics, you will not be bound by simple attack and defense. You’ll have to make use of dodges and knockbacks to stay alive in its hex-based arena!


Dynamic Deckbuilding

Pick up dozens of cards, keep the ones you need, and craft a unique deck as you fight your way through randomized levels that present a different challenge each run!

Hex-based Tactics

Unlike traditional deckbuilders that focus on attack and defense, the tactics element adds a dimension of positioning. Dupe your enemies into attacking each other, or use the terrain to gain an upper hand.

Dual Equipment System

Carry equipment in both hands to enhance your cards! You can dual wield daggers for extra damage, go with a sword & shield combo for rounded performance, or wreak havoc with a two-handed weapon. Figure out the best combination for each fight!
