Update 5/21/18: Fixed a bug where you can dash while in store.

This game was made for Ludum Dare 41 in 72 hours- Theme: Theme: Combine 2 incompatible Genres. This is the Post-Jam version with a few added upgrades and bug fixes.

Game was supposed to have a in-depth shop-keeper mechanic, but I had to scrap that due to time limitations, so it sort've turned into a hybrid idle-clicker game.

Instruction Tip: Go in the dungeon and at the end of each room you have 2 choices to “save” your loot, or continue forward with the risk of losing a lot. You can sell your kept loot to get yourself some souls and buy new swords! See if you can reach the final room!

Controls: Arrows - Move / S - Attack(hold/press) / Use mouse for the shop.

Its a good game with a fun style and cute art, the gameplay itself is pretty simple and straightforward. My only misgiving is the boxy form of attacking, in which the character seems to attack enemies in one box whichever direction they are facing so if an enemy begins to shift while close to the character between the 4 cardinal direction then they are untouchable unless the character moves but likely has already lost a heart. Minor thing being the difficulty of the ranged enemies is vastly greater than the normal skeletons and their shooting is both ridiculously fast and the timing between shots is a bit random so no strategy works.

a biutifull game but i get so stressed when cant defeat these range monster

I love this. Please make more of this!

Souls look like ugandan knuckles(ish)

i really liked the game as it has a very interesting setup

i must confirm you of a bug that happens with the dash

if you are at the shop window you cannot move regularly but you can dash
if you go into the dungeon with the menu on the game will continue as normal (looks like it)
once you get out of the dungeon the shop wil never respond again (wether you enter the dungeon again or even reset the page it wont work)

i hope this would be usefull as well as warning anyone that wishes to know what would happen and if it is possible
