Yep, it's done.

Second Wind, folks, Second Wind is here.

It's a witty blend of Text Adventure, Roguelike, and Sweet Simplicity.

All in all, there are 20 classes, three skills each, three major areas, four endings, countless monsters (as in, I'm too lazy to count them,) treasures, specialty shops, equips, weapons, and more.

Folks, this is one big game.

Also, there are medals, lots of em'

I sincerely dare you to beat the game on Nethack Difficulty.

And remember, dying is all a part of the experience :D



The last update was on October 21st, Version 1.57:

- Fixed up the Saiyan's awaken doing absolutely nothing.
- Fixed the broken meter glitch... Hopefully.
- The "explore" segment should run faster.
- And some other stuff I can't remember.

Send a PM with any additional problems and I'll get on them as soon as possible! <-- Now there's a wiki too!

I have been visiting newgrounds and enjoying it's movies, games and music for over 6 years now and I never bothered to make an account until now. This game was the last motivation I needed to sign up into newgrounds. I know this isn't much of a review, but it's good to have in mind that this game is so good that it made me join the site, at last, after all these years.

That's some pretty good motivation for me right there!


Rated 5 / 5 stars

No doubt the most addictive game since bloons tower defense 4.

Quick tips to all reading this: Most classes should be played on easy or medium, since the lack of healing on Nethack will destroy you early on. Also, because the auto save feature kicks in after area 1, you should avoid using second wind after you reach area 2, as this merely wastes your gold and whatever potions you used before dying. Dexterity is by far the most important stat, as having a low dex means that you can miss 3-10 times before finally hitting the enemy, so try to just increase that through the "Wing offering" and avoid the "Armor offering" as this lowers your dex!

Looking to beat it on Nethack? Become a Paladin. The Paladin is one of two classes with a healing ability, and it far outstrips the cleric. While yes, your heal and mercy abilities cost gold, they pretty much guarentee that you will not die in battle, so avoid wasting all of your cash on equipment, leaving about 100 or so for battles. Mercy's armor boost makes you invulnerable for a few turns, while the dex boost gives you a 100% chance to hit the enemy (Very usefull for bosses). The strength boost is pretty useless though. Unfortunately, it could take you one cast or ten casts to get the Dex boost if you need it, so again, SAVE YOUR GOLD!

I've seen people complain about the paladin, but I have not seen a better class. I beat it on Nethack with the paladin, but I have a lot of issues reaching area 2 with any other class on easy. The Oni class is somewhat good due to its major damage output, but the lack of healing will get it killed time and again.

Also, the bard is the second most difficult class to unlock, and the hardest to play in my opinion, so ESKENS INCORPERATED CHALLENGE ISSUED: Beat the game on Nethack with the Bard!Good luck <3

I love how people are making strategies for this, care to contribute to the wiki? It's in dire need of a "strategies" section for each class.

I absolutely loved this game, put it straight to nethack and beat it. I was a ranger. I put loads of points into dex and spammed triple to win. But one question...

How do you get the good ending? I was so pissed when I went through all that and got the 'Average' ending!

squidly responds:

Look at the Wiki :D

Well, is an excellent time-killer, some powers are equal to IDDQD +IDFA (by example the boom of the darkfolk) someother need sensless effort to reach the level of the basic attack. (emnity) and also then are useless

the craft of the lime knight basically raises his cost way too quick.

Beside this, the real issue is the explanation of the powers, sometimes is really confusing, or maybe my english is not good enough... a power debuffs 3,14% charisma... to who, to my avatar or to my opponent? is really hard to understand what´s going on from the screen, and the messages erased by enemy attack don´t help very much.

squidly responds:

The Wiki is there for clarification, I only have two lines to deal with here, folks!

And uh... There is no charisma stat?


Rated 5 / 5 stars

1st off absolutely loved this game! It was highly addicting and very entertaining. After wasting enough time to beat it on Nethack and obtain all medals, I have come to the conclusion on the following.
1) Oni, Espers, and Darkfolk (he completely roflstomps) are overpowered
2) Saiyan is trash even after you unlock super. (Kinda disappointing) Maybe considered sub-par at best.
3) Enforcer's kick and ccccombo breaker are broken considering chop by far does way more damage regardless how many kicks and chops you do in a fight.
4) Black Guard sacrificing dex permanately for a skill is completely useless considering the dex curve after area 1 scales immensely
5) Getting cubed has never been more frustrating
6) The curve from the cubes to the wanderers/ mobs in dungeon 1 is a bit overbearing for some characters regardless of difficulty. (Guess that's part of the game)
7) The 3 fencers dex requirement is ridiculously high compared to the trash mob in that area.
8) Gets really annoying if your low on dex and you only have gachapon / that really low chance of getting the time machine (and having two pieces of time on you) to raise dex in area 3.
9) The 4 lords were a really cool concept
10) Countless times i was 10 or less gold under the smith price for what I needed for an upgrade (go figure)
11) Armor does not seem on par with with the usefullness of dex/pwr
12) If you don't use JC, getting 3 successful flutes takes a really long time
13) For the longest time I though unlocking Black Guard involved getting -3 from the pots / fountains in a row...(derp)
14) The class concept of the Avenger was really interesting.
15) The Paladin will require you to get a second mortgage.
16) The cameos and allusions in this game were completely awesome!
17) Fighting 3 times in the arena takes an annoying amount of luck. (was hoping for the fights to be more challenging.)
18) Was hoping for better events when you wandered the tower, the infinite wall, and the golden throne.
19) Really wanted the runes to be part of a big event.
20) Wish it was a bit longer!
Anyways those are my ten cents, I hope to see more content in the future.
Good Work!
