This game is awesome. I have waited a long time for someone to take the old school nethack style game play and make it not so... antiquated. It's easy to look at, voice acted, and just in general an excellent game. I hope people learn from what they did right here, such as the many varying classes, including samurai (a personal favorite) and many more, or the unlimited variance and replayablilty. There is a lot to be learned from not only this style of game but how this was developed.

Incredible experience. The level of depth, artwork and overall gameplay is amazing. Great work! Suggestion: make navigation easier by moving the directional arrows down and to the left of the screen, or optionally dynamic so it's easier to move the character with one hand.

Fantastic Nethack tribute/remaster. I've only played Pathos in the past and reading the NH Wiki has left me wanting for some of the cut features. So happy to have found them here. A much more robust karmic system, and the animations and voice acting are a fun touch. This deserves to be on the top page of the app store. For it to be free is highly impressive and commendable. Thank you for your hard work. I look forward to following the development!
