Gets boring quickly Fun at first, easy to level up, plenty of gear to sift through. But after the 7th dungeon you start to wonder if this game is going anywhere. I got bored and went looking for a better game
Sure It's pretty fun. I can't say I'm the biggest fan of rogue likes. In fact, i don't think I've found a more infuriating game but i can't stop playing for some reason. A shop would be nice though. And it would give the unbelievably over abundant equipment a purpose. Also, after level 3, the health potions pretty much cease which is bad since enemies don't regenerate and they seem to get exponentially stronger each floor. Also, the health potions become painstakingly useless as your level progresses. Js.
Right direction Gave 3 stars because game is fun, however there is nothing that I could see that defines one games character from another. Yeah you can get better equipment and go deeper into the dungeon but nothing else made one games character different. So replay ability dwindled quickly. Maybe if the game evolved some aspects which help define one games main character then I could get back into it.
Very promising retro game! Excellent gameplay for only $1. Has potential to be much, much more. What about occasional misses when attacking (both player & enemy)? Potion of speed? Ranged weapons? Also, respawning enemies will help both to keep level interesting & not run out of potions. PS after latest update, the game gets stuck with blank screen after switching away to another app and back. Rebooting phone (HTC desire) fixes it. Hope this will get fixed in next update.
Needs more content. Could greatly benefit from a town hub or merchants, upgrade trees, maps and better level design such as mazes and traps. Could also benefit from better randomness as getting to the first door in the dungeon and having 6 monsters to fight with only half energy gets old. The difficulty should build not be constant. Immersive mode support would be nice as well as Google Play Services integration such as high scores, achievements, cloud saves, and game gifts.
Works now... Downloaded with no problem after latest update but got black screen again on first attempt to play but with music this time. But loaded up fine on second attempt. Think I'm gonna love this game....ok had a chance to dive in. One fatal flaw. Survival is entirely dependant on finding heal potions. There needs to be a turn based recovery system. Or heal when yiu go between lvls for the first time or rooms or when you go outside. Maybe add escape scrolls...
