I only just started playing but so far I have noticed a few things
1. There is a lack of content on the first floor and also that stairway on the first room was misleading and I thought I had to go down there for a bit.
2. I don't like the combat so far but maybe I will get used to it.
3. You could make a selection if you want to point and click or use a control pad in an options menu if you get around to it.
Now to your questions!
How does it play? Do You like it? Hate it? Why?
Personally I don't like point n click but it plays well.
Are the levels too short or too long?
The first floor was a great length but had a lack of enemies the 2nd floor was even better with the amount of enemies.
Picking up items from chests and enemies
this is great putting rare enemy drops on certain enemies would definitely add to how much someone would want to play.
What do you think of the auto map
The auto map is very helpful but maybe a function could be implemented that would make the map stay on your screen so you don't have to keep clicking the menu button.
What do you expect from the auto save
I expect that every time I go down a floor It auto saves there should also just be a save function.
Well done on your game so far Dylan I'm sure it will be great
