After some initial frustration with the combat, It eventually clicked and I played it all in one sitting! If I've got any hints for people frustrated with the combat, it's that the various items you can buy are oftentimes significantly more powerful then skills, even.
And to offer some critique, the employee rerolling thing seems a little odd, mostly just seems to keep you from progressing if you get too low of stats or whatever, accuracy can be a real pain at lower stat levels.
Definitely worth the five bucks! Though I am curious if I've actually 100%ed the game, I feel like there's a couple of items I'm missing, and some extraneous ones.
