well well

I have to say this is one of the better games I've played on newgrounds. The fighting was as decent as any rpg and the music was really well made. kudos to you.

Haven't beat it yet, but it is extremely fun. I have found a bug that if you constantly leave one area of the map and go back to it, chests randomly appear making it very easy to get items and gold...So maybe decrease the likeliness or something. >.>

I don't like how sometimes you pin up against 3 monsters, they all go first, and all of them uses something that does like 50 dmg to all the party members and kills them all. =\

Same goes for the creatures that do status ailments to all characters with one attack, but then again that's really just my fault for not having the correct potions 'n' junk~

Again, I really enjoyed this, and I would really like to see more. (Once I finish it. xD)

Pretty decent game

Since I enjoyed the game a lot I'll also make a detailed list of bugs/likes/dislikes
First off the music. It is good but after a while it gets repetitive.
Second I love the graphic style of the game. It's just so cheerful and happy.
The plot was ok though you could've done a bit better with the character development.
The dungeon layout was pretty decent and had some variety.

Now for the things that bothered me.
1. Money is a bit too easy to get. This might sound weird but perhaps you overdid it with the gold rewards. Although you don't need to grind for hours for money like in some other games :)
2. Random monster spawning. I like the idea but on several occasions as soon as I entered a room I instantly entered battle. Maybe put some small invisible walls for the monster spawning.
3. Bosses. The bosses were fine aside from the fact that you could silence/sleep/heavily debuff them(not sure about the sleep). In my opinion they should be immune to those effects. That would make the game a bit more challenging.
4. Skill description. It would've been nice to mark the physical and magical. I can guess them but some people might not(not sure if all skills are considered magic)
5. Elemental resistances. It would've been nice if there were some elemental resistances but that's not much of a problem. It was funny to burn a phoenix to death with fire O.o
6.Weapons. I have no problem with them. Decent variety and strength.
7.A small bug. If you go very close to a chest and you are very slightly on it and if you then click in the center to get it, after the reward wherever you move the mouse the character follows it.(I mean that it's as if you are spamming the mouse button but without actually pressing at all) Bug is fixed after you click once with mouse

Well these are my impressions on the game. I hope you're not offended by some constructive criticism. Very fun game and hoping for a sequel .
5/5 10/10

Great with its pros and cons...

Overall game was quite interesting, though there were parts were it got repetitive that it lacked the spice and vigor it possessed in the first... 20 floors? Another gripe is the chests thing mention by others earlier. When there is one in the room and monsters too, they disappear when you fight the monsters first... this is troublesome in tight corner rooms.

Also something the town portal which I'm not if it's fixed yet or not. Though when the option to teleport back to when I used the town scroll is given... my own game freezes. Also there should be more short cuts and key settings. Maybe use the control pad more since clicking on the mouse was getting annoying when navigating through certain rooms.

Side Quests and Minigames are fun... least till you play Zombie Defense.

Not even given a quick demonstration (unless I missed that somehow) when fending off the annoying zombie horde. In that minigame there is another control problem. For some reason whenever I click on some tiles to match them up... they will not be highlighted and will need to click on them repetitively to get them to be highlight.... plus that kind of puzzle game needs a bit of time to think of combos and such... I manage to beat easy to hard mode by pure luck and fast swapping that manage to work... Expert... you either need a world's worth of luck or very fast computer processing brain power with the speed to match.

Was a little disappointed in some of the bosses... after using the aoe buffs and debuffs... they became way too squishy and easy to handle... Is there any chance a Super Boss I may have miss?

Best beginning start with the class: Tristan as Rogue, Kali as Healer, Phoebe as Fighter, and Rueben as Mage. Though I wish you could chose their names from the start of the game... oh well...

Also the plot... feels like they were just instantly put together on a whim. Though they seem to get along in a weird... "I hate you guys" "Idiots stop ignoring me and help carry this loser" "HAMMER" and such kind of way.

Lose a point only due to the controls gripe.

Great game, make more

Very good! Nice characters and nice drawing style. I like how you can upgrade your items, so that you do not have to discard them in favour of another one.
I think it is a shame that the characters never get close to the enemy to perform a melee attack though, but other than that, and some sligth descriptive problems, it is a great game :)
