Diverse Monster Mixes - Tread lightly, or be ganged upon by monsters with complementary abilities that might drive you crazy.

Items, Traps, Devices and Events - Opportunities for a favorable turn even at the most desperate moment. Choose wisely and use unwelcoming surroundings to your advantage!

Heroes and Goddesses Create your heros attributes build! Sacrifice to receive your mighty Gods blessing (and later betray him to check out his fury)!

A Challenging Experience - Prepare to have a tragic (not to mention permanent) death.

The original app disappeared from the App Store. It appears that this version provides an upgrade to the full version via IAP.

I just experienced some weirdness. I was making a run in Chaos Mode (not sure how that's different from normal) but as I traversed to the 5th level or so I was greeted by what appeared to be some yes/no dialog box in Japanese. Neither hitting the green or red buttons seems to do anything so I'm essentially stuck on the screen.

UPDATE:
I see they released a hotfix patch so now I no longer get the Japanese dialog box, it's now in English. The catch being there isn't any text but the "Tip" at the top border and hitting either the "Ok" or "Cancel" buttons at the bottom do nothing. The only way to proceed, again, is to force quit out and start a new game.

This game needs a portrait mode and maybe a zoom option.

I get it that folks don’t want to bother reading along thread, but this one has only 6 posts, and the explanation is almost immediately above yours.

What makes me a little nervous is that there is no mention of this rerelease anywhere in their long abandoned social media nor does it appear to be the same publisher so is this even official?

Blank Tips window

I keep having a blank Tips window popping up and I can click Ok or Cancel or anywhere on the screen to get it to go away. Any suggestions? I have closed the app and started a new run but it comes up after a couple floors
