Keep it up you guys!

If the game developers are reading this, they need to know this is my favorite game on the App Store. I bought the ad-removing and 3-bit color granting In-App Purchase, which was well worth my money. I love the game and it's great, but I feel it has a lot more potential. If you would keep updating and fine-tuning the game, maybe with a daily/weekly challenge setting, I could see the game becoming way better. Better than it already is, which is hard to beat! Keep improving the game, and I think you could have a real success here!

Cute but repetitive

This game definitely gets down the feel of a traditional roguelike, with simple controls, permadeth, and an enjoyably tense atmosphere as you try to resource-manage between gold, health, and progress. That’s the game at its best. At its worst it’s grindy and tedious, and sometimes feels unfair. While I’ve definitely died a few times to mistakes I’ve made, too often it feels like you just find yourself in an unwinnable situation: you have no weapon, you’re in a dead-end area, and there’s a monster in the way. It’s kind of annoying to die every time because you took a wrong turn in the maze (or spawned in the wrong place), especially when death means a tedious slog through the earlier levels of the dungeon to reclaim your progress.
All in all I’d recommend it, but it gets repetitive pretty quickly.

Great roguelike

This game is wonderful especially for free, I couldn't help but supporting the devs for the 3-bit graphics they truly are lovely. I beat the game in a day, that's not to say it's easy by any means, I personally play a lot of roguelikes so I'm rather familiar with the genre but this game is a wonderful little roguelike with replayability cause even after you beat it you still can beat it with other classes which offer a whole new play style. If you're on the fence about this game, trust me, you're gonna love it if you're a fan of the genre.
