Slay the Spire is a hybrid card game and roguelike developed and published by Mega Crit Games. It’s a single-player deckbuilder boasting over 350 fully implemented cards, over 200 different items, and over 50 unique encounters. In addition, the game advertises features such as dynamic deck building and a number of powerful relics to uncover.

But, if you’re just getting started with Slay the Spire, you might be curious if cheats exist in the game. If so, you’re in luck — while the game does not feature a revolving door of codes, there are methods of making certain things easier. So, while they might be considered cheats, it’d be more accurate to call them strategies.

Cheats / Strategies for Slay the Spire

Save-Scumming / Manually Saving

It’s an understatement to suggest auto-save is — at times — a valuable innovation. It can be very helpful sometimes, but it can also ruin an otherwise perfect run. Here’s how to manually save and load your progress in Slay the Spire:

TO MANUALLY SAVE

  • Begin playing Slay the Spire.
  • Open this folder on your PC: \Steam\steamapps\common\SlayTheSpire\saves
  • Locate and copy + paste the IRONCLAD.autosave file to another folder on your device.

TO MANUALLY LOAD

  • Quit playing Slay the Spire.
  • Open the folder you pasted the IRONCLAD.autosave file to.
  • Locate and copy + paste the IRONCLAD.autosave file back into the saves folder.
  • Restart the game, and select ‘CONTINUE.’

Unlocking cards and relics quicker

  • Play Slay the Spire and get as far as possible in a game. If you can make it to the final campfire prior to the final boss on level three of the dungeon, that’d be preferable.
  • At this point, manually save the game via the method above.
  • Fight against (or defeat) the final boss, at which point you’ll receive experience.
  • Then, manually load the game via the method above.
  • If done correctly, you should be able to gain experience again. Rinse and Repeat.

Slay the Spire is developed and published by Mega Crit Games. It is available for PC, Xbox One, Xbox X|S, and Nintendo Switch for $24.99. Stick with Gamer Journalist for more codes and guides just like this one.
