Welcome to Dungeon Hell
These sort of Rogue-like games are appearing a lot nowadays. What is a rogue-like? Essentially its a dungeon crawler with random elements abound from random rooms, random enemies and even random item effects. They are tough as hell and often only for real fanatics.
This makes a little bit of an attempt to make things more acessable, different character classes try and make different ways to play work, a limited inventory throws out a lot of 'garbage' items and movement/attacking is done via simple clicks. However it throws itself back into the pit by cranking up the difficulty level to make things brutally hard, the random generator more often than not throwing you into rooms right from the get-go that kill you almost instantly.
And its this that kills the game dead, theres no fun in repeatedly dying and resetting into a whole new dungeon so any progress or memory is taken away. There is also no fun in having controls that make it far too easy to accidentally hit 'friendly' characters, nor is it fun to have to unlock characters by the amount of times you have failed.
Its a tiny filesize game but theres zero fun to be had here. Avoid.
