Made it up to level 79 before learning that I can roll.
I could have scrolled down to the description before playing. Maybe I could have gotten to level 100 with that crucial knowledge.

BEST GAME EVER!

This was such a fun game!

Super fun!!! I'm a huge fan of Dark Souls and this mimics it pretty well. I got to level 113 and farmed 5528 souls. EDIT: My record is now level 204 and 10771 souls.

So much fun to play!
