So good but needs a guide

I absolutely love this game. It feels difficult to win and that feeling is incredible. I also played Nethack but this is 10 times better. But there are so many things that confuse me. If we get a guide, this will be even better.

Continue updating, good work!

Love me some convenient nethack!

Love the game! But I need help. I got lucky with an early polymorph zap and have a pet giant shoggoth, but ‘shaggy’ keeps starving. Tried ‘sharing’ metal items, leaving them on the floor etc but it keeps starving and fainting :( Any help appreciated please!

Best rogue-like ever

By far the best and most genuine rogue-LIKE game on the app store. Constantly being updated and maintained. A bit of a learning curve for people new to this type of game but definitely recommend for a real rogue-like experience.
