I kind of surprised this went free. It's worth a couple of bucks. It's a nice little quick play rouge-like. I'm curious, is there an end?

The final boss is on floor 30.
I made it free because I figured it's better that way. If you are still happy throwing a few bucks down, it's also at devlin.itch.io/wizardslair

Oh. That's depressing. I thought I was closer. I'm not even 2/3s of the way.

I picked it up back in April when it was $2.50-ish. It's a fun little game. The perma-death is of course brutal and the inventory size makes it really tough. It's a fun game though.

Now that I know there's a finish line, I'll have to keep beating on it.

Does this have any kind of magic system? How varied are the items and monsters?

No magic. All the combat is melee. There are about 40 or so items in the "floor loot" tables and a number of items you can only get by killing monsters.

Game looks interesting although I don't know about $9.99. I'd probably spring for it if it ever goes on sale or lowers its price to about $4.99. There are just too many of these games and many are cheaper or even free. Keep at it though, I wish you luck.

I wish someone would make a Temple of Apshai Trilogy type game, or even Gateway to Apshai. Sadly, those classics from Epyx have never seen remakes or related type games. :(

Iffens I understood programming I'd gladly remake those Apshai's. I understand that programking requires math tho (yes?) and that's my bane, my downfall, my curse- if it's not basic addition/subtraction, I don't understand it. Sigh.

I find Dredmor's graphics to be one of its strong points, oddly. I love the hand-drawn, unique look. To each his own of course, I just found this amusing.
