I had to take the time to write this review, as i played this games for a few years now.
Great roguelike game, and getting better with updates.
Your simple goal is to become the King, by defeating the old one.
The current king is announced at the start of the game, and is the player who last claimed the crown.
There are no classes, you can develop your character as you like. There are different talents, and you control your 4 base stats to improve you character the way you choose.
Dungeons are random, with some pre-generated ones, so games are always different. And after you complete the dungeon, one way or another, you can reset it, and adventure more. There are no limit on resetting dungeons, so you can explore until you challenge the king, or die.
Frustratingly hard, until you get the hang of the game mechanics and ways to counter enemies,
death is lurking around every corner! And after, too... You really need to think your next move when in tight spot, if you want to get out of it alive. Death is permanent, unless you have a certain amulet, in which case you might get a second change ..=)
The basic game is simple, but has surprising depth as the game has "heritages" to unlock, making the game a little bit of easier as you unlock them, as once you unlock them you can use them in later games.
Overall, personally i have spent countless of hours trying to learn from thousands of deaths, and even succeeded in thinking before acting. And, ive yet to achieve the crown, despite hard trying. This next game Im gonna get there..!
Really a good game, if you like a challenge.
Besides, in the coming update, there should be an easier difficulty level for those learning the game, wanting more casual experience, or not just man enough to handle the game. Good job!
maybe the easier setting takes out those nasty bad reviews telling the game is too hard....
I really recommend it, best roguelikes ive played. If you got the stomach for it, its hard as hell for beginners, and youll die a thousand deaths =)
Thanks for reading.
