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.

Would've been amazing with said shoopkeeping mechanics and a longer time to develop!
Without that, it was still a pretty nice combat game, similar to roguelike dungoen crawlers. Awesome visuals. Would love to see a full version of this

For a 72h game, this is amazing. My only complaints are that the money you earn at the gold skulls were kinda too much. I ddn't have to buy the mage rod and on my second playthrough I went straight from the 1st, to the 3rd, to the last sword and them all of the upgrades. That and the lack of a satisfying ending, considering that even with all of the equipment, the game still presented some difficulty!

its good but too repetitive

This is great! It's both simple and simplistic game. This is one of the few types of games I would go for if I would like to take it easy for awhile. I am deciding to download it and introduce it to my younger bros and sis. Thanks for the downloadable option!

for a game made in 72 hours it's impressive but it has a few problems like the exploit where the ai can't figure out to walk around a wall but you can hit them through said wall. however, the audio is nice and the visuals are even better. personally i think this should be worked on and made into a full game with some explanation for where you are and why you're doing what you are and maybe adding more enemys. i'd buy it

This is really good! Beautiful art style, smooth animations and even brilliant music.
