Mar 5, 2014Another great roguelike that stands up to even the best of them like FTL and Rogue Legacy, only this time with a style like the snes era JRPGS of old, and with a unique side scrolling darkness of doom that keeps you moving from left to right or else you get eaten up by it if you take too long messing around in one of the mini dungeons, or get stuck inbetween too many mountains or bodies of water, I particularly like this one because of the nostalgic music that comes with it, it truely sounds like something out of a Chrono Trigger or a FF5
For less than $3 this game can give you many hours of replayability, and even has a little online feature that lets you see other players progress in the randomly generated world you are in (did i mention its randomly generated?) and if someone dies their ghost can end up in your world and theyll drop one of the items they had on them for you
A really good game for the price, i wish more rogue likes were in the japanese style, i love it… Expand
Mar 3, 2014It presents itself as a cheap, shallow, casual, story-less, old school, rogue like, JRPG experience with some replay-ability due to seeds, death, and # of turn constraints, exploration, difficulty level, and unlocks. Everything started changing about 10 minutes into the game.
First! It went from being shallow and simple to being real deep and the transition was beautifully done. The mechanics are much deeper than meets the eye! Some people won't beat it on the first try and even those who beat it will find many reasons to replay the game from a different perspective and then you will notice something.
Second! Then after a few runs, you'll start seeing hidden story elements in this story-less JRPG. You found the rabbit hole but little did you know, there is more than just that one rabbit hole. As you spend even more time chasing the plot, you'll notice even more secrets.
Third! You don't want me spoiling these secrets for you. Get the game. The entertainment it provides is worth more than the asking price. And when you're done with it, and agree with this, go buy another copy and throw it at a friend.
By the way : For those who are terrible at games and fear the roguelike element. You don't have to start from scratch. You simply get more points if you do start from scratch. The points are spendable for unlocks, but they don't buy power.… Expand
Mar 3, 2014This game is very innovative, and whilst playing I can't help but bring to mind Half Minute Hero as well. If you've played that and enjoyed it, you'll love this. This game is very fast paced, and if somehow you manage to plow your way through it immediately (good luck) you will have only spent 30 minutes on it. However, the game's replay-ability is it's biggest feature. Each victory ends with more loot, more rewards, more knowledge, and more challenging modes to continue playing with. The game is endless hours of fun, and I must say it is well worth the small amount of money it costs. ($3.00 For anything that lasts for hours and hours is a good deal, regardless of what your interests are.)… Expand
Jan 14, 2014Old school RPG, or at least it is what it looks like from far far away.
This rogue like RPG is very hard and at same time so fun, 1 life is all you have.
You'll just restart after dyeing again and again, unlocking new class, perks or spaces in the dimensional vault.
Each run rewards you of points and advice, so you'll never be frustrated to have done so much for nothing.
On top of that there are many game modes so you have the experience that is the most what you look for in the game.
And for the price, it would be a shame not to try it if you like that kind of game… Expand
Mar 2, 20143.5$ for a game with this amount of depth just seems unfair to me, but I happily accept the cheap price and purchase the game, as should you. This one's a real gem, an addicting rouge-like-perma-death type of game that actually rewards previous runs (you get to grab an item or five into your next run, you unlock new skills and your next character has a 50%+ sexy bonus). Get it, it's a god damn steal at any price under 10$, and you're getting it for 3.5$ (or less, I got it at a sale for 2.96$).… Expand
