This is so much better! Play with the bard if you don't want the rythem part of the game and just want to play turn-based.

And the dancing skeleton is back! Yaiii!

Glad the dancing skeleton returns to us all. He represents the game and it's values so much better.

This is not clicking with me. Looking at other comments I guess In going to try the bard to see if I can get my head around the mechanics before going back to rhythm.

Or does nobody ever go back to rhythm once they try the bard?

You have to play with the first gal who looks a bit like Link's sister to unlock the story elements, but if you're not so hot it may be worth using the Bard to unlock everything first. You should enjoy the game a bit more with the safety net of having the best upgrades unlocked. If you free the dude in level 2, you can also go in with advance weapons for a few little diamonds.

The funny thing about rhythm is you don't really notice it when you're in it. It only becomes glaringly obvious from the outside. Unless you're like my dad who has asperger's and hates all music, it should click pretty soon. The first dungeon's pretty unfun and on-railsy, but immediately after that, when the levels broaden out and you find yourself having to quickly micro-manage the hoards heading towards you, it becomes massively addictive. At least for me. Keep plugging away. It's often the things that take awhile to click that end up being permanent mainstays!

Thanks for the feedback! I'm going to persevere. If everybody else loves it, I'm sure the penny will drop for me eventually.

Would you say you've clocked most of the enemies' movement/attack patterns yet? That's probably the number one key to getting anywhere in this game.

Pretty please fix this bug. This game is too good for me not to play.
Hi! We just posted an update that should fix the lost save data issue. Please let us know if you run into any other issues.

Permanently staying on my device

Crypt of the Necrodancer was Game of the Year before, right? If not, I'm filing a class action lawsuit against TA. xD

This game is just too damn awesome! I paid full price and bought the Japanese version, which has some difference with the soundtracks; I'm still learning enemy movements/patterns. The whole game is very challenging and hardcore, which I love! One day, I'll learn how to defeat dragons...I still haven't beaten ZONE 1 yet, but maybe after a good month or so of practice, I'll be able to effortlessly.

Thanks again to the developer for porting this gem to iOS!! It is one of those games that will stay on my device permanently.
