I don't know about the control interface on this one...it looks clunky.

No one's interested in this? It looks cool enough, although I see Albie's concern too. 2.99 is a reasonable price if the controls don't ruin it. I may TOFTT, I'm still debating though

probably its just random generated empty feeling levels without much of a backstory.......i doubt there will be any quests.

i guess the game consists of walking around killing enemies once in a while and from the description thats about it.

why should i put away "the quest" for this?

My instincts are saying it's a bit generic and cheap.

Helvetica will treat you good if you take time to understand her.

It's giving off a huge Eye of the Beholder vibe to me, which is an enormous plus in my book. =) I might get this later today if no one else has...

Actually the game has both a story mode and a random dungeon mode. Both offering different "settings" as well as different levels of difficulty.

It is not meant to compete with Quest, but it offers a different type of gameplay (very close to EOB as someone noticed) that complements that of a more involved, quest driven game. It is a pick up, crawl through and see some dungeons, get some shiny loot and put it down for later.

I should know, since I did the game....

Welcome to the forum. The game looks interesting, but what usually is helpful is a video showing gameplay.
