Clank! Reference Guide – Lexicon

Welcome to the Clank! Reference Guide Lexicon, where you can find definitions and explanations for all the terms and phrases you’ll encounter in the game. In this guide, I’ll break down the different concepts and elements that make Clank! such a unique and exciting experience. So, buckle up and get ready for an adventure into the world of Clank!

1. Clank!

Let’s start with the name itself: Clank! In the game, “Clank!” refers to the noise you make when you stumble or make a wrong move. You’ll want to do your best to minimize your Clank, as too much noise can attract the attention of the dangerous dragon lurking in the depths. So be careful and stay quiet!

2. Dungeon Delving

When you play Clank!, you become an adventurer exploring treacherous dungeons filled with ancient artifacts and valuable treasures. Your goal is to delve deep into these dungeons, gather as much loot as you can, and escape with your life. But remember, the deeper you go, the greater the risk.

3. Deck-Building

In Clank!, deck-building is a crucial mechanic. I like to think of it as assembling your adventuring toolkit. At the start, you’ll have a small deck of weak cards, but as you progress, you’ll acquire new cards to add to your deck. These cards provide you with skills, tools, and resources that you can use to overcome obstacles, defeat monsters, and ultimately increase your chances of success.

4. Market Row

The Market Row is where you can find and purchase new cards to add to your deck. It’s like a marketplace for adventurers, offering a variety of items and abilities to enhance your deck-building strategy. Keep a close eye on the Market Row and choose wisely, as the cards you acquire can significantly impact your chances of survival.

5. Dragon Attacks

Throughout the game, the dragon will periodically attack, unleashing its fiery wrath on the unsuspecting adventurers. These attacks create Clank and can have devastating consequences if you’re not careful. So, make sure to keep an eye on your noise level and plan your moves accordingly to avoid catching the dragon’s attention.

6. Escape from the Depths

The ultimate goal in Clank! is to gather as much loot as possible and escape from the depths of the dungeon before it’s too late. The more valuable treasures you acquire, the higher your chances of success. But remember, the dragon is always lurking, ready to pounce on anyone who stays down there for too long. So think strategically, move swiftly, and make your escape!

So there you have it, a quick tour of the Clank! Reference Guide Lexicon. Now you should have a better understanding of the key concepts and terms you’ll encounter while playing Clank!.
