  • Nice little game. Very simple and without any twists to more or less traditional roguelike mechanics, but fun enough to win it once or twice. Turrets near staircases seems a bit unfair, but roguelikes are generally not very fair. Inventory could be more friendly. Looking into stats to figure out equipment details is not very convenient.

  • Completeness

    This is a pretty polished experience. It felt like a Real Game. And that's hard to pull off in 7 days! 4/5.

    Aesthetics

    The UI is pretty good, and I would have given a 4/5 here, but I was frustrated at not being able to compare weapons and armor on the fly. I had to equip it, check my stats, and maybe switch back. It was very frustrating. And the rest of the look is very bare-bones rot.js style. So, 3/5.

    Fun

    Good balance of enemies, armor, weapons, and items. The levels are pretty samey but the generator does rooms-and-corridors about as well as you can do with rooms-and-corridors. The game felt short but polished. A complete set of ideas. I did get slightly bored eventually, but it felt worth my time. I would give you a 3/5 here for fun because it did kind of get old after 30 minutes, but having played a bunch of other games, it's definitely in the top 30% for fun. So you get a 4/5 from me.

    Innovation

    Every mechanic in this game felt conventional. It's not a bad thing to have a traditional but themed roguelike (it was still fun to play), but because the mechanics are so simple and conventional I have to give a 2/5 here. Please do not take this as me saying this game is not good though!

    Scope

    The turrets and enemy variety bumped this from a 3/5 to a 4/5 from me. I felt like there were multiple approaches to most situations, and it didn't feel samey until I had basically beaten the game.

    Roguelikeness

    This is a roguelike. 4/5.
