It's a good for what it is, but there are two noticeable bugs. In the endgame, after beating the final boss, you're able to hit continue and keep playing. If you do this, if you use a potion afterwards, you're brought down to 0 health each time.
I love it and hate it at the same time. It brings back some great memories of classic rogue, but I clearly absolutely suck at this. In a dozen play throughs I have only once made it to level 2, and often am killed in a matter of minutes.
Monsters seem to level incredibly fast, and as soon as I have to fight more than a couple in a row I get destroyed even on easy (or have to run, which hardly ever seems to work, lose all my money/health and end up dead the next time I have to fight anything). Especially against monsters that I don't even seem to be able to hit! The one time I made it to level 2 I couldn't seem to inflict any damage at all on any enemy.
I like the range of characters and play styles, though again I am hopeless with all except a couple.
I just don't get where I am going wrong each and every time. I have no doubt the fault lies with me rather than the game- it is clear that some seem to be able to make progress, but for a game with so few actual options at any one time I can't believe how terrible I am at it!
how about third wind?
IT's Soooooo fun!
