I finally got it after missing the February sale on it and it was a great gem of a game reminding me of the 80s when I grew up to pixel games. It was one of those games known to go back on sale so I just waited versus paying full price. So far a fun game. As others said, strategy seems to fail this game which has too much roll the dice and hope for the best with many saying they died so often they grew tired of dying all the time and quit playing. Found the background music annoying.

Fantastic rogue like! Don't listen to the haters looking for a rogue lite, this is how it used to be. Each run is unique and you win or lose on your own choices. The random events spice things up and the dungeons are varied. Some of the information should be clearer (the math behind weapon damage is there but very hard to see), but overall it's a great number crunching, turn based RPG.

A gem amongst games. Note that dying is very much part of the game. The RNG can be cruel, but rarely have I found it impossible to deal with. The refrences scattered in the game made me smile. It can be played without connecting to the internet. A big win combined with the pixel art style. (I will admit now that I am biased in favor of classic pixel art, having grown up with games such as Monkey Island and Kings Quest.) It is challanging, yet you can by pass the RNG if you pay attention. Made much easier as you play, lose, and learn the dungeons. (Online guides help also if you are so inclined.) Bottom line however is death is going to happen. Don't get attached. The replay value lies in pushing your limits and testing new combinations. Since the flow of the game is the same on all three levels of difficulty, you may not enjoy the game if you require the game itself to provide the variations. My only gripe of worth is the annoyance of the auto orientation. Makes it tricky to play while laying down if the game auto adjusts to a portrait view rather then landscape view.
