Interesting game that stands out


I never write reviews for anything but I liked this game so much I felt it deserved a review.

I personally get tired of all the endless runner games and the tap a million times games out there but this game is unique and has some fun elements to it.

Yes the game is hard but it's not impossible. A lot of reviews complain about the "cheap" poison that weakens you so much or rooms with all ranged enemies but you learn how to prepare for these rooms or pray to the gods and take their punishment to skip the room.

The storyline was really interesting to me. It references the fact that you're caught in a cycle of dying constantly and are trying to break that cycle. It's not as unpredictable as people think and you learn what causes certain events to go different ways based on your choices and stats.

Gameplay is nice as you don't have to break your phone tapping as fast as possible and since it's turn based you can watch a show or work on something else at the same time. It definitely takes a few times of dying to realize what you're supposed to do.

I do wish there were more characters to unlock without paying since I beat the game using the free characters. Other than that I just wish they had a sequel or another game out there like this one. I highly recommend this game.

Unique! Worth a shot...


So this game might not be everyone's cup of tea, but it's definitely unique, and in a sea of clones, I appreciate that.

The mechanics may seem screwy to some. But if you try a practice round or two, learn from them, and try again, you'll realize that not everything is unintentional. There are some clever tricks at play here.

Bottom line: It's just a game, after all, and life is too short to be led around by naysayers. Give it a whirl!

To much unpredictability


It feels like most of the time that I die is because this happens, I go into the floor only to find out there were all ranged enemies and I have no ranged weapon, getting me killed. Also the rooms with the poison traps need to be reworked, to many and can end up eating about 20 hp. A way to fix the traps would be to make it so that if you walk to a space adjacent to it shows up but does not give you the effect. Also ranged does not mean I'm going to stand right in front of this monster and shoot, make it so that the monster needs to walk to you or something.
