This is decent. It's pretty simple and fairly luck based, but it's a fun time killer. I wish I knew if the IAP for color mode would remove the ads.

It's too late.

+1 on this.

Also, is there any way to see what the artifacts do? The warrior starts with one, but no idea what it does.

Purchase of 3-bit mode doesn't remove the ads.
The collectible artefacts don't appear to add bonuses except for the initial starting ones, e.g. +2 Atk for swordsman. The story suggests the remaining four artefacts have to be collected to win.

Took the worst feature of Pixel Dungeon, i.e item degradation, and threw it in here.

To be fair, that's a common thing in roguelikes, if not necessarily inherent.

I love some RLs, and I love anything that reminds me of Game Boy gaming, so I'll check this out.

Wow that stinks that the somewhat pricy color IAP does not remove ads. Please developers, let us remove them!
