Yes, there's a puzzle mode that introduces the gameplay and enemy types. And there's the roguelike-esque adventure mode

Why would you regret getting a game for free?

Anyway, this game is not that hard to figure out and is quite fun, and it has infinite replayability in the challenge mode.

Probably wanted to support the dev

Also this dev also made the freeware roguelike Red Rogue if anyone's interested.

What MojoRisin says is very true, not hard to figure out at all. Get this one, its really amazing. Download now, regret for not paying later.

The first is the "campaign" mode that serves to teach you how all of the various enemies and other entities work. There is no written tutorial, but the levels are ingeniously designed so that while figuring them out, you learn all the elements of the game.

The second is a "challenge" mode where you have to use your knowledge gained in the campaign mode to navigate randomly generated levels and get to the numbered gates, or you can go through a non-numbered one if you have no other choice, but you have to find the numbered ones to progress. I'm pretty sure the idea is to go through all the numbers, counting down from 8 all the way to 1. I haven't finished it, though.

That's all you need to know to play. The third icon in the main menu is evidently some kind of creation mode, but I haven't messed with it. But the game itself is quite addictive, and plays fast enough that you want to keep playing just one more, especially in the challenge mode.

Frost, some bad news. I am pretty sure that the update we just got turned out to be all the dev was working on. He basically rewrote the engine or something. No new stuff like I had hoped. Also, he says he's done with ending now (via email), but at least he left us the level creator. If you guys make any new levels I repeat, please share them! Also, the level pack I linked is now broken due to a change in how generators work in the update. That sucks.

Oh well at least we have the full game with everything, and rogue-like mode should last a while. Its endless after all

Its cool to do your own levels but I don't see any way to share from the level editor inside the game, how can I do that? Is the dev around?

Pretty sure Scorpion mentioned earlier that you need the (free) flash version to push your created levels to ios. Haven't gotten around to that.

Also, I thought adventure mode ended...is it actually endless? I haven't gotten past room 2, but I thought after room 1 you were done.

A surprisingly very good game. I don't mind the menus, actually enjoyed discovering what they did by experimentation. The only thing I think the game lacks is GC acheivements and some kind of leaderboards. It would help give the game additional purpose. Sharing puzzles could also be neat but there is quite enough already included for the meager price of admission.
