Crash and level generation bugs made it this somewhat frustrating to review. The items are very repetitive, as is the combat.
Other than a general "get to floor 3" the game lacked too much of an endgame or goal. This is admitted on the game description page itself so i wont belabor it too much. The behavior of the game felt quite off at times too, i would attack enemies who seemingly didn't attack me back, and when i attacked enemies no other enemies would move. I imagine there are a few bugs in the turn-based mechanism of the game in that regard.
Despite the developer being hard on themselves in the description, i actually quite liked the original tiles and thought they carried a more-than-good-enough eldritch feel to them. The snow level was pretty jarring though. White background with a white character and mostly white text was pretty rough.
The game had potential, but with the enemies only differed by sprite and the loot-pool was pretty shallow so there wasn't too terribly much to it. Flavor here or there would add a lot to the game. Things like more or different look and enemies that perhaps behaved a bit differently.
Not too much being added outside of the usual roguelike norms
The game is definitely a roguelike!
