Hm, this storygame is interesting. I also think I couldn't have beat it without spamming alt + left. :)

I eventualy had some followers one of which survived to the very end (a healer for my rouge). The others all died (before the final boss actually). I also had baisically unlimited funds by the end.

The creatures were nice and reminded me of classac fantasy. It was pretty grindy, but I kept on going anyway. I figured out how to use the mechanics pretty well by the end, though I never was able to use my Rouge's Assasinate successfully making it useless to me.

My favorite aspect of this storygame was the humor. It added a nice touch and a smile to the grinding. I also never found an error in the scripting (of which I suspect there to be a sinful amount) besides the Asssinate ability (which I may have not used corectly).

Lastly, I personally saw a slant in the gear towards the Knight/fighter class. I constantly picked up weapons and armor that I hoped my companions or I could use, but the stupid fighter could only use it. :(

Anyway, I loved the storygame. It was a great few hours (that I should've spent writing). :)

Obviously, there's not much story since it's a dungeon crawler. But it's probably the best text-based rpg I've ever played! The level of detail that went into all the different weapons, armors, shields and items, plus the different classes and their ranks, is truly astounding! If you're looking for a really fun dungeon crawler that takes strategy and lasts quite a while, this game is for you. The icing on the cake: Even though there's not a lot of story, it can still be very lighthearted and humorous at times.

Note to author: I did find one broken weapon. It was a flail, found in a chest near the end of the game. It said it was a wizard weapon at the top of the description, but at the bottom the class limits were fighter/priest, and it couldn't be equipped by anyone in my party, despite having one of each class. Besides that, truly well done!

I can barely begin to imagine the amount of work that would have had to go into just making the framework for all this. I wonder how many variables were used in total... not to mention the total scripts!

Further I should mention good writing isn't sacrificed for the sake of the game elements. It has both!


If you haven't tried this out yet, I highly encourage you to give it a shot. I will say that there is more clicking involved compared to the more story focused storygames, but that doesn't detract from the experience, and honestly, with this heavy use of the advance editor, it is to be expected.

Oh, also, did I mention there are pictures?

Amazing Game! The coding was probably insane, but the result is defiantly worth a few hours. The reputation of this game's creator set a high standard, but this game goes far beyond my expectations!

I try to give a few suggestions for any game I play. It was hard to find anything to improve, but I noticed that the bone spear grants back-stab bonuses, even though a Rogue can't use it. Am I missing something?

Also, it would be nice if there were less stats on the items page. What I mean is that it's a bit overwhelming to see that your sword has +0 mana regeneration, +0 hit point regeneration, +0 hp, +0 instakill, +0 stun, you get the point. Maybe if +0 stats could be hidden, that would improve the game. You might even be able to make a setting where you could toggle that on and off at the start of the game (although that might be a bit hard).

Overall, amazing game! I hope the rest of you love it as much as I did!

Great. I noticed a grammar error on the end boss intro page, but nothing other than that. Very great game, even better than dungeon stoppage (and that's saying a lot)! Thanks for all the hard work and time this must have taken. After this game, I am left with the thought: "If you can find games like this for free, without even any ads, why by more expensive (and possibly worse) games?"

Over all, GREAT game. I hope it gets featured some day!!

This game is so damn hard and I only managed to get to level 100 by using the Go Back button every time I took fatal amounts of damage. Some of the items were bugged like the swag bag (couldn't equip it on human rogues) and the holy wooden shield (couldn't equip it on wizards,fighters and rogues) but the bugs like
the aforementioned bugs involving items are pretty few and far in between. I can't even begin to imagine the amount of effort that went into coding this. 8/8

This is the best game on the site. 100 levels of an Elf Wizard magically slaying countless beasts, abominations and sinners. Thank you for this gift. Thank you for creating this. This is a love letter to fantasy games. Worth every second spent playing.

really good, my only complaint is that you cannot frequently access your inventory
