I tried the lite version.
Game seems kinda like a roguelike or mystery dungeon, but where nothing moves but you.

Anyways, quick impressions.

Pros:
Easy to get into.
Decent drop system.
Partially randomized maps (more for items, not layout or monsters)
4 different character styles to choose from.

Cons:
Combat is almost completely hands off, except for invoking spells.
No RPG-like character development.
Nothing moves.
No use of abilities outside of combat.

Yeah, the gameplay is very dull. Moving around a path with enemies (things like puppy dogs and butterflies, horses cattle and upright-walking kittens, at least early in the game) who don't move isn't particularly interesting and there is no sense of urgency. The combat is dull and repetitive and as mentioned before, the only thing you can do is choose to cast spells. The translation is terrible. There is basically no strategy involved, other than to equip items, use potions, and which path to take, and whether or not to go through enemies to get to a chest or not.

This was a non-starter for me, unfortunately. I was excited by the prospect of another roguelike on my device. Not at all worth the $3 in imoney, if you ask me.

Agreeing with two posts above. Also, this is not a roguelike in the slightest--no permadeath, special actions, random generation, high difficulty, etc. It's just a boring grindfest with decent pixel art and poor gameplay.

I wonder how people can release games that aren't even fun. Do they even play their own products? :\ Glad I tried the lite first.

I think it's fun to play. The loot system is good, keeps you coming back in short bursts.

Besides: there is a little strategy involved on how you level your char: the colored crystals increase your stats differently depending on the class your using.

And if you stumble upon an epic item, it's kinda fun watching the hero mow down all those low level butterflies and chicken and whatnot.

So I'd say it's fun for short play sessions, since with 1000 items, there's always somthing new to discover :3 plus it's not as difficult as traditional rogue likes, as was mentioned

This does seem interesting even though it's not very good as a roguelike. Could someone tell me how the difficulty progresses, and how large the game map is?
