Very well made turn based roguelike. I have played countless hours of roguelike games and I find myself thoroughly enjoying this gem! It is simple yet holds a lot of tactical depth, and I mean a lot. The graphics are a nice change of scenery from the usual. I may recommend a few upgrades for future updates, but I’ll have to progress further in order to understand how much content there already is to enjoy. Worth every byte of storage space!

Try it

I waited to download this because I didn’t think I would like it. It looks pretty basic in like a puzzle game. But whoa it’s so much more. The humor everything about the game the way it feels to progress all of it is excellent. Definitely a five star game. I hope it works off line. oh and most importantly and making it deserve 6 to 10 stars is that there are no in app purchases that I can see.

So Good

Tightly balanced, minimal roguelite with an endearingly funny backstory and a great synthwave soundtrack. I enjoyed every minute of my first 5 hours of play…and then I learned I’d managed to completely overlook the weapons upgrade mechanic. Mind blown. Rock solid gameplay loop with just the right mix of RNG and tactical gameplay. This game is the best of everything I love about roguelikes crammed into a keenly formatted byte sized packet.
