Accessibility Comments

The developer has shown a lot of willingness and commitment to making this game accessible. The most recent updates have all contained fixes for VoiceOver users, and he has expressed a desire to know of any outstanding accessibility issues. He has taken a game that used to be clunky and difficult to play, and turned it into one of the coolest and most accessible dungeon crawlers on the app store.
At this time, the only major issue involves NPC dialog. When a piece of dialog pops up, it is necessary to double tap twice to move on to the next piece. This is not a showstopper, but it may be useful to be aware of ahead of time.

VoiceOver Performance

VoiceOver reads most page elements.

Button Labeling

Most buttons are clearly labeled.

Usability

There are some minor accessibility issues with this app, but they are easy to deal with.

Other Comments

This is a great game. If you're looking for a dungeon crawler, one with lots of monsters, loot, level ups, and fun sounds, give this one a try. There is a lite version, but it is supported by ads that may be difficult to close for a VoiceOver user. Due to the developer's level of commitment to accessibility, I would strongly recommend purchasing the full version if at all possible.

Hello all
I will purchase this eventually but wanted to try out the lite version first and it appears to work great. Just a few little things that I have noticed.
Saving works fine under settings and a tutorial message states game will save once you go down a floor. I made it to say the third floor, go back to town and when tapping on go to dungeon, I am returned to floor 1 and have to make it all the way to floor 3 again. Is that normal? Is there a different return button that I am missing?
Also, I received an achievement, submitted it to game center under settings, got experience, leveled up but couldn't spend my skill points. When leveling up after winning a fight, I can spend them just fine.
Finally, how do you swipe to attack in battles? Each monster has a slider that appears to do nothing, double tapping attacks it. I have direct touch selected under rotor settings but it does not show up on the rotor when a monster is highlighted.
Thanks for any assistance and loving the game so far!

I'm not the original poser but I can answer a couple of these. As far as I know, the going back to the first level of the dungeon once you go to town is deliberate. If you play for a bit longer, eventually you'll get a way to teleport further down, but otherwise you have to start from the top.

The way the swipe thing for monsters thing works is actually really simple. Say you've got three monsters attackin you. Go to the first monster say, goo 1. Then it'll say goo 2. If you double tap then you attack both monsters. Or if you swipe down again it says goo 3 and you attack all three. Let me know if that made sense.

Hello was just wondering if the dev is still in work with the game ? And found a couple of bugs. I cant seem to hit the two headed dragon but i can use skill on it i'll always die from the two headed dragon cause i will run out of mp since i cant attack it regularly. And i cant seem to pass the lost forest when it isays theres a hole and btw i get stuck there and cant use the home stone another bug is when i'm in the dungeion and out of battle when i use heal it works but i also cant seem to exit out o of the icon to proceed. Anyone has these bugs?

Submitted by Yvonnezed on Tuesday, September 21, 2021

I'm with you on the game. I lost half a day to it when I downloaded it on Monday, 😏. Only an iOS 15 upgrade temporarily snapped me out of it.

Either I'm just dumb, or the analyze skill isn't accessible with voiceover. I used it, but the enemy HP doesn't seem to show up anywhere.

Hello,
How does one actually buy items in the shop? I went to bbuy a bamboo spear but I could not find out how to buy it. I double tapped on the spear but nothing seemed to happen. My gold did not go down and I could not find any kind of buy button when flicking around the screen.

Has anyone contacted the developer yet?
I can’t fight the Two-Headed Dragon with normal attacks.
And for buying there Is a buy button next to the item.

Submitted by vue on Thursday, September 23, 2021

Hello crystal jhon ok so i figure out how to hit the two headed dragon. To hit it you need to go to it's name and swipe one finger to the left then one finger double click on it to hit it. Oh and btw what lvl is everyone and have you guys gotten the excalibur sword ?? Oh and btw to buy a item or etc there should be a buy button just click on it and you should be able to buy it. Hmm it probably depends on the phone and update of ios that you may have. Idk but i'm just saying

I was just wondering when are you able to use the fishing gear and how do you work it?

Submitted by vue on Friday, September 24, 2021

Hi i don't know much myself but to do it when your in the dungeon go into your inventory and use it. Once you use it go to battle and it should work but the one thing is idk if you have to guard or keeping attacking the monsters. The description or what they told us about the fishingpole is that we will have a small chance to catch the monster. Till now i have not gotten a catch yet. But if you figure it out then please tell us as well lol. Thanks

Submitted by vue on Friday, September 24, 2021

So i came upon this if you decided to buy the last three spells. You won't be able to buy the other rest of the spells. Thats only if you bought all the rest of the spells and not the last three spells. Because the npc will not let you learn any more if you did bought the last three spells like blizzard etc idk about the skills so yea lol buy all the lower skills/spells first

Submitted by vue on Friday, September 24, 2021

Hi me again was just thinking it would be cool if the dev can let us enchant our gear with stats/status effect or elemental protection. And does anyone know if the dev is still working on this game ? And anyone have any tips/tricks ?

Submitted by Yvonnezed on Friday, September 24, 2021

I have actually gotten the fishing gear to work and actually caught a couple of monsters. I'm still playing around with working out what to do with them once you catch them. you're meant to feed them, but the only place I've seen meat is occasionally in chests. I think once you catch you they're meant to help you in fights, but again I haven't been playing long.

Submitted by Christel john on Friday, September 24, 2021

Monsters can help you in fights.
I catch them by using the Confuse spell then guarding.
Now i’m trying to catch a dragon.
Happy hunting

Submitted by Skhye on Friday, September 24, 2021

Once you use your fishing gear, fishing happens automatically while you fight in the dungeon. You can tell when you are no longer fishing because the fishing icon disappears from the screen. It's not that it's inaccessible, it's just completely random. Every now and then a monster will become interested in your fishing pole and bite it. Sometimes you catch one.

I have contacted the developer but I haven't heard back yet. This game is definitely being worked on, as the last few updates have addressed voiceover fixes. The latest came out last week. I'm not sure if the developer is looking at this thread, so feel free to post over on audiogames.net. I know he checks out that thread.

Submitted by Christel john on Sunday, September 26, 2021

Hay guys,
What monsters do you have?
I’m using a dragon, a Goblin Sorcerer, and an Orc General.

Submitted by Yvonnezed on Monday, September 27, 2021

So far, only a dragon. First because I'm finding meat incredibly rare and hard to find, and second because any minion helping use shares your experience points so it takes forever to level up.

Submitted by vue on Monday, September 27, 2021

Hmm need the dev to fix the Cathedral some reason i cant seem to buy the other spells. And the npc says i have learned all the spells but i have only learn heal/shield and blizzard thunder storm fire storm or whatever it's called. Oh and btw i only have a dragon as well and how do i know if i have a rare or epic minion ? Oh and btw what dungeon level are you guys ? And the rnd for chest get's harder i think been brinding a hole lot. Monsters get's stronger and strong... they should at least increase the xp for the harder the monster lol

I caught a raider and it’s name is Sasuke
It will be better if we can name our monsters

I know the feeling! I have an orc whose name is Ork! Gets a little confusing sometimes! I also have three different minions named Sam, but that's a whole different level of confusion.

HEllo, I bought this game yesterday and really like it. The dialogue is a bit irritating to get through at points if you want to enter/leave the store and it would be nice if you could equip/unequip while in store but in general its really good.
One thing i find confusing though? improving/forging items.
Apparently to improve an item i need another item?
But which item gets destroyed and which of the two hgets improved? This is not entirely clear to me.
Also on my iphone se 2020 the game freezes a bit if I encounter stairs in the dungeon before I can either wander or take the stairs.
Greetings, Anouk,

Basically it's in two parts. Select what you want to improve by tapping the edit button next to it. Then everything gets listed again as well as orbs but this time it says forge next to it. Tap forge and the item disappears and the item you're editing gets better.

How do we find meat? Thank you

Submitted by vue on Thursday, September 30, 2021

To get meat it's random drop from chest and kinda hard to come by. Wish the dev can put it in the item shop so we can buy it instead. And if anyone came into contact with the dev was wondering if you guys can tell him/her if they can fix the Cathedral.

Submitted by Christel john on Thursday, September 30, 2021

You can buy meat by going to Port.
Then go to Shore.
The guy who gives you the fishing gear will Sell meat

Submitted by Skhye on Thursday, September 30, 2021

If you find yourself unable to buy something in the barracks or cathedral, be sure you have enough stats to equip it. Even if you have enough gold, if you don't have enough strength, stamina, intelligence or agility, you can't buy the skill.

Submitted by vue on Thursday, September 30, 2021

Hi well it just that i bought the last three spells from the master and haven't bought the other spells. But for some reason when i go back to the square and go back to the Cathedral the mage master says he have tought me everything but i haven't So yea lol i can't seem to learn the other spells such as confuse etc and my int is like 100 something

Submitted by vue on Thursday, September 30, 2021

Has anyone gone past the deep hole once your there ? Or is it bug. I can't seem to pass that spot when i get there. Any clue ?

Submitted by Skhye on Friday, October 1, 2021

There is a button that voiceover can't see. It's right above your XP level, a little off center toward the right. Turn voiceover off and tap around a couple times near the bottom of the screen. You'll end up back in the dungeon. I contacted the developer asking him to fix this, but haven't heard back yet.

What's the difference between the light version and the paid version? I'm a little reluctant to buy this.

Submitted by KE7ZUM on Saturday, October 2, 2021

I'm loving the game except I always have to start from floor 1. why can't I pick up where I left off? I got to floor 4 but after I defeated the monsters the game never moved on. also, I don't get the swiping thing yet. Can someone explain that to me again?

At level 10 you will get a stone that will teleport you to that level then you will get one at every 10th level after that.

Submitted by KE7ZUM on Saturday, October 2, 2021

so every ti8me I teleport up I have to start over? I'm at level 6. Bleh. I almost died at floor 4. this is sucky. Is there no way to teleport to floor 4 after I go to town?

Submitted by Skhye on Sunday, October 3, 2021

I started out playing the light version and switched to the paid version almost immediately. The light version has ads that are difficult to close for someone who uses voiceover. Also, there is some endgame material that is only available in the paid version. If you're enjoying this game at all, I would strongly recommend buying the paid version if possible. Not only do you get the full experience of the game, you will be supporting a developer who is making a good effort to improve voiceover accessibility.

This is actually a common feature in dungeon crawl games like this one. It's a feature not a bug. When you get to floor 10, you will find a stone that will allow you to teleport back down to floor 10. When you get to floor 20, you will find a different stone that will then allow you to teleport back down to floor 20. Etc. etc.

Submitted by KE7ZUM on Sunday, October 3, 2021

so I basically even when I die need to start over at least for now? also I don't get the swipe to kill multiple enemies, and I died when 7 of them came at me at once. Yipe. I also lost half of my gold whjich I already knew woudl happen.

Submitted by Use Small Words on Sunday, October 3, 2021

i've just downloaded this game and I've recently found out that whenever I return to town with the home stone or die the game doesn't save and I re-enter the dungeon on floor one. Is anyone else coming across this? I'm on an iPhone SE 2020 running iOS 14.7.1

Submitted by Yvonnezed on Monday, October 4, 2021

Ok, let me try to explain the multiple enemies thing again.

Suppose you come across three goos. As you swipe right you hear goo 1, goo 2, goo 3. Every enemy says "adjustable". If you swipe up on goo 1, it will say goo 2. At that point, if You double tap, you attack both, and it stays that way until you change it. Swipe up again and it says goo 3, and then you're attacking all three.

To reverse it, swipe down. This works from any monster. Down adds a monster to your left, up adds a monster to your right. Keep in mind, though, that with each monster you add, each one will take less damage with each attack, so it's not always worth it.

As for going back to level one every time, in this game, the actual dungeon level isn't really all that important. In fact, in the early part of the game, being killed is a cheap way to be healed. The things to work on are your weapons and armour and experience. Trust me, if going to the same floors of the dungeon over and over bores you, this might not be your game, ☺️.

Submitted by Use Small Words on Monday, October 4, 2021

I think that the autosave feature is faulty. According to the game every time you go down some stairs the game is supposed to save. This isn't happening when I play. I will contact the developer.

Submitted by Skhye on Monday, October 4, 2021

The game does in fact autosave. You keep your XP, weapons, armor, and gold. What does not autosave is the dungeon floor. This is a feature, not a bug.
