This looks interesting. The character level dropping back to 1 after the dungeon reminds me of a few DS games I have played that worked really well.

Not sure if I want to spend $5 this early in the morning.

I would like to see a movie of the game in action as well as an introductory special to get things rolling

I like the returning to level 1 bit as I too have played some games where this works great. I do agree with cranker and think some intro pricing would be awesome - especially with so many games coming out it seems in the last day or so!

Also if an intro price doesn't work then a vid would be great! I don't want to spend 5 bucks cold if you know what I mean. Especially since that controller looks overwhelming!

Hey that's a generous TOFTT! Thanks! Let us know!

See if you figure out how to make weapons with the music in your iTunes library! That is very intriguing!

I am wondering if this is going to play like Izuna. Will wait for impressions.

Nuts. I was hoping for something that actually had an 8-bit style.

Okay, I'm in the office, so I had a toilet break and played for about ten minutes. It's a definite roguelike, turn-based and everything. More Shiren than NetHack. Went into the same dungeon twice and seemed to have a different layout. Bit tricky, too - I died on the third floor of the first dungeon. Seems to save the money you've found when you die, unless you start with some - I didn't check the shop before I first played. Made a new wand with a song from my iPod, so that feature seems to work. Doesn't look like you can save mid-dungeon, which might be an issue. Not sure yet, but I think it might be a nice little game.

I'll play it more this evening, no doubt.
