What do you get when you combine the bullet-hell additions with a desk-building game like Slay the Spire? You get one Step from Eden, and it's a revelation.
More like Slay the Spire. You only have one life to see how far you can reach. You choose cards to add after the battle. You choose between the different paths to follow. There are bosses, subordinates, and things to do without war (free people, visit the store, etc.). You buy, sell, issue and upgrade cards. Gets the experience of unlocking new cards and characters You move on with something – Eden in this case, not up.

But at the same time it's very different. One step from Eden, he shakes. You play on the grid – you on one side, enemies on the other side – and you need to move in order to sharpen your skills while absorbing what your opponents throw at you.
Take, for example, your thunderbolt spell. It's very powerful and will crash four spaces in front of you, but if your enemy isn't there, it won't hurt them – it can be a devastating attack, and you'll have to wait for it to pass back when you try again.
Power is called the hot key in Q and P and E, and it automatically turns on after you use it, cycling to other abilities from your desk to use. Once you've used them all, they are flexible, or you can force flexibility by pressing the space bar. It sounds confusing too – getting started first.
But as long as you learn how things work, the first time you look up to your hot bar, that's when the magic happens. This is when you start to deliberately and deliberately incorporate fly strategies, depending on what your enemy is doing and where you are.
If they're hiding behind, maybe a fire line will take them out, or maybe a poison wall because it attacks the back line and pushes enemies forward. Eden has many skills that affect movement. You can hold people in place and hold them; you can keep the tiles from getting caught, you can push and pull. Travel is a key part of the game. You have to keep moving.
You have to keep moving because the left side of the screen, where you are, will be under constant attack. Just like in the hell of a clueless box, there will be bombing patterns to avoid, bars and defamation systems, and when you get to them, the facial patterns have developed to learn. They're tough crack nuts, bosses (and they're characters you'll be unlocked later to play as).
It's hard to get started, as I say – there's a lot to take. But in an hour or two it will look different, I promise. Try to stick to the Phalanx and Misery skills to begin with, which generally protect and heal you, and then ignore others. This helped me a lot; it was a golden of advice from a friend. As soon as you find your feet, mix them up. Try combos, play around – get into their meat, in other words.
One step from Eden is the amazing explosion of power in the high-tech Slay the Spire genre. It's smoky, beautiful, and great.
