UPDATE:
Thanks for daily second!
The game now includes another HARD version which relies
less on farming and more on skill.
I recommend first playing the original version and only then the hard version.
In the hard version you can go into fights only with 1, 3 or 5 blood.
(This means that once you get enough blood for the final boss there's no point in farming anymore)

Made for Ludum Dare 44

-Mini metroidvania
-Bet on your health to enter challenge rooms and earn more health slots.
-Use health slots as currency to buy skills.

Most annoying glitch - shouldn't pressing R restart the fight you're in, eg if you're starting with a boss, rather than restart the whole game?!

Smooth controls, good music, good balance of difficulty on the "hard" version, which is nice! The betting feels a bit low-stakes - when you wager and lose, actually don't lose anything except the time you took on the level, so there's no sense of jeopardy. Not sure what you can do about that unless you suffer a temporary loss that you then need to go and whack some monsters to recharge - which just brings back the "farming" you didn't want.

I know it's a LD but could have done with a more satisfying ending than that :p

Nice, great game

Really fun, i have so much health i can't die

You went and updated it. You couldn't put in an ending?!

I really like it I love how it gives you both versions of it so if you wanna farm you can or you want it to restrict you from farming you can anyways i really like it and you should play it.
