Very nice and polished traditional roguelike. A bit too easy for my tastes, though - some levels can be crossed without encountering a single demon, the cooldown on your banishing spell increases rather slowly, there are plenty of wards and potions of refreshment, plus demons never come in groups so you can easily retreat until you get your instakill attack off the cooldown. The only truly dangerous demons are the archfiends, who on the other hand have a very, very nice attack!

But take this with a grain of salt - I think that any game that doesn't kill me several times before I learn how to get at least into mid-game is too easy. :) I won this game on the first try, and if the dev wanted to make a post-challenge release, I would love to play it again with spawn rates increased and ideally with even more demons spawned immediately after picking up the Star Ruby.

Thank you so much for playing and your comment! Those are good and helpful criticisms/ideas. I ran out of time to test it more and tune it more -- I worried it would be too hard at first so I went probably too far in the other direction.

I plan to make a post-challenge update that tries to find a better balance with being difficult but not impossible (hopefully!).
