It's fun, but way, way to easy. Because their no random turn order you just need to increase the first and third character's stats. Then just use the first character's attack that does damage to all enemies... when he runs our of mana, use a mana potion. Then the third character can use their damage to all enemies attacks, and if you've been buffing her up it will take them all out. Then you just have to randomly stumble around the dungeon until you win. And gold is pointless, because all the upgrades become to expensive to even afford. Luckily if you'd like at least SOMETHING to do with it you can just not increase the middle character's stats and then his upgrades will stay obtainable. Not that their's much a point, his sole purpose is to use items to increase the party's mana in a pinch. It was fun, but I didn't finish it because the outcome was obvious, I was going to win.
