Difficult game, took four hours to beat it. Fair though, since you keep the gold you make even if you die. Auto button was necessary Lots of nice little touches like the restart stage button. It feels like a complete game though there were balance issues. Fifth arcanes were useless. Fire was useless throughout the whole game, even more so when the fire stumps were introduced. I have no idea how the large hp guys were suppose to be dealt with, during the third half I just used the instant death and clock combo.
Tips: Get the gold upgrade first. There are buffs in the shop, I didn't notice the shop button until much later. What I did in the graveyard was Thunder runes and Mjonir. if you have 50% acc or so on Thunder, maxed arcane recovery, it should be doable. The arcane buff in the shop also helps.
Third half, instant death and clock combo. Max spell casting speed, and the number of icicles thrown, and piercing.
