Sadly while this game is fun (And not as hard as some say) it seems to be abandoned with major problems.

For starters, while you can collect backpacks and increase your inventory, the numbers to reach the items end at 6 so if you have more than 6 items, you can't use them or drop them, which also means that if you want to craft the bigger backpack, for example, you can't since you can't drop the items that are located above 6.

While I got this game from a giveaway, I don't recommend on buying it unless it gets updated and fixed.

Also, not to mention that "Esc" takes you to the menu with the keyboard bindings but if you accidently press "Esc" again it will exit the game without asking.

Pretty much Spelunky but in a lot more faster paced! Beware to die a lot!!!! Traps are every where causing death! Controls for the keyboard suck! Deff play with a controller! Play the game slow and fight small monsters and bosses! Chest lying every where allowing you to get new items!

Pros
Chest and keys
Boss battles
Music is good
Ropes, light, and bombs
Steam achievements and trading cards
Animations are nice

Cons
Controls for keyboard suck
Perm death (restart entire game)

This game has a lot of potential, but sadly, the controls are too "Slippery" feeling. Not only that, but a lack of control customisation leads to a very un-natural feel when playing. If the controls were able to be customised, and gamepad support was properly added (No real option for it, so there's a lot of guesswork with what does what) then this game would probably feel much better.


I hope this game gets improved upon. Although to me, it feels like a more budget version of Spelunkey with controls that aren't as good.

It is charming, though, and I think it has potential (As stated before)

It would be a really fun little game if not the fact that it has many game-breaking bugs and developers apparentely abandonded this game (no updates/fixes for almost half a year).

+ The gameplay is fairly fun, reminds me a lot of Spelunky. You dig, kill monsters, fight bosses, and look for treasure.

This game is in Early Access so don't take these too seriously
- This game has not seen any updates for over 6 months... Developers are clearly abusing the Early Access system
- Far too many traps that spawn randomly as you mine. Bear and Spike Traps will randomly spawn, ghosts will fly through walls, arrows will fly across the screen.
- The pickaxe (your main weapon) has far too short of an attack range. You will likely take damage by weak monsters just because you have to walk so close to them for your weapon to even do damage.
- No sense of direction, goal, or story. You are literally wandering around aimlessly exploring.
- Described as a "roguelike" but I feel like that's just an excuse for how quickly you die in this game.

This game was pretty terrible on a few core levels. I suffered 2 different crashes within minutes of playing it, the character movements just feel bad(you have no control of how high you can jump so you always jump max jump height which is often much higher then the space you are in so 90% of the time jumping causes you to bounce off of the ceiling above you like and idiot.) and the basic attack/digging range is terrible. Pro tip: Don't make a characters attack radius smaller then the characters head. Worst of all it just looks really bad and has an uninspired art style. Better pixel art characters could be made in minutes with little effort.

Just a flat failure and it will take a complete overhaul to improve it. I don't understand how people have apparently enjoyed this game so far.

I'm not sure if it's me, but the difficulty for this game is brutal, more brutal than I anticipated it would be based on reading the various reviews.
I've died so many times, and retried over and over again.
There are several items in the game that you can pick up, but the game itself doesn't teach you about most of them, so I don't know what they do or what they're for.
The controls are a bit clunky, and there are a few weird bugs every now and then.
No clue what I'm doing or why I'm doing it, maybe that's what they were going for based on the name of this game, but it feels unrewarding.

A fun, fast paced, challenging deep dungeon descending dig of doom where you have to watch every move you make but don't stop moving. Trust me.

It's one of those games that will get you hooked pressing retry until you beat it. Well worth the 4 quid! Even in early access. This game has great potential.

(Having missed the "roquelike game" part - One try Adventure)

Let's see:
+ The graphics is pretty
+ The animations are pretty
+ The music and SFX are very nice
+ The controls are smooth (supporting the XBOX360-Controller)
+ The tools and gameplay are fair (but You cannot dig up)
* I would like to have Load/save/New World-option(s) like in MC/Teraria/ "?Don't Strave" - Playing long and carefull but have to end- so much for nothing...

89/100 Having to shut up and dig

This is basically a easier version of Splunky but a little more buggy
