Can't believe I haven't posted about this before likes! The game is called Desktop Dungeons. It's genius. Very simple, very clever, surprisingly deep, short, addictive. And, at the moment, slightly unbalanced. Go play: http://www.qcfdesign.com/?cat=20

That's OK, it's because you're mentally impaired. Besides, don't apologise to me, apologise to the person who put his SOUL into this game. Or don't, the experience is subjective. Some people (most people?) won't enjoy this.

I started next to two monsters that did more damager per hit than I had health. I died before doing anything at all. This game is fucking stupid.

It should be mentioned that these two monsters were blocking the only exit from the room. The next game I played allowed me to kill two monsters and then be left to choose a monster to kill myself on.

Occasionally because it's a random layout you will be screwed, OTOH the games are short and you lose nothing really by restarting. You should try a Human Priest as your first playthrough, Priests are really powerful against undead. I'm sure you've worked out the mechanics, but you gain health and mana by exploring, monsters of a higher level hit you first, same levels means combat happens at the same time and being a higher level means you go first. You get experience equal to the level of the monster PLUS a bonus when you kill a monster that is a higher level than you (for instance, killing a level 9 when you are level 1 boosts you to level 6 instantly). I'm not sure what my win rate is like - probably not very high as I went on a losing streak with the warlord when I was trying to unlock something - but I can still win a moderate amount of time.

Winning as a vampire is ridiculously easy. It's like some kind of joke.

Also it crashes a lot...

Yes, the vampire is very very easy. Sadly I've not unlocked it yet! I can't beat the crypt with the assassin. I've a feeling I should try with the orc again. Or maybe just stick with human.

Also, I've never had it crash on me. What are you doing to it?!

It crashes or at least totally bugs out whenever a USB device is unplugged or plugged in. It also occasionally forgets to kill me when I die, but I can no longer damage anything and the retire button does nothing. At that point I just Task Manager it to death and it screams out INVALID FLOATING POINT or some shit.

Beating the crypt with the Assassin is extrememly easy if you're a little lucky. You need to find a Glowing Guardian or Pactmaker altar before doing much of anything, and the HALPMEH glyph really early on. It's probably best to be a human or an elf for it, the benefit is probably around the same.

I'm having trouble with the Wizard in the Factory challenge. I've gotten really close two times. I think I can only win out of luck by happening to find an evasion item and use the evasion deity bonus on top of it... and just hope they miss most of the time. Luckily it's really easy to hit level 10 before even fighting the bosses, because you can kill the animated armor things with fireballs so very easily no matter what level they are. Too bad being level 10 doesn't help, the bosses will still grind you into hamburger.

The factory is really easy with the sorcerer unsurprisingly. And yes, Iron Man makes wizards into a pasty mess; so would it be useful to go a human so you can damage him? Me no know. Have you unlocked most of the other bits aye? Well yes or you wouldn't be on the factory :D

It took me ages to get the warlord. Not a fan of his glyph - if it stacked I'd use it lots more.

I've never had the Glowing Guardian with my assassin runs, did have him with a priest though. That was just messy... I also had a really good run with a monk in the library. I chose Taurog as my god, mashed everything. I did well over 100 damage at the end...

The only thing the Warlord's glyph is good for is fighting the goat boss. I had everything unlocked other than whatever you get for beating the factory as a Wizard after playing for 4-5 hours. I've spent the rest of my time getting mauled in the factory.

Ah, that's a good point. I've rarely come up against the goat. In fact, I don't think I've ever beaten it... Have you managed any other runs? I'm wondering if the best way to do the wizard one is to get as many shops, gold piles, loot bonuses and best shop stock as you can by playing other runs...

I finally beat Factory with Wizard. I got a little lucky with the items and got a physical resist and a +attack/+life item. The important part, though, was that I found the poison glyph and the golem didn't resist it too much. I started killing him at like level 6 and took advantage of as much unexplored space for healing as possible. I also knocked several of the animated armors down to one hit as possible and used them to level up an get my health/mana back. I ended up with far more healing and mana potions than I needed to kill the meat man.

I have now discovered, because of this, that crusaders totally suck. If you have an absolutely ideal situation they are quite good, and end up doing like 600 damage in the end, but that happens maybe 1/15 times.

I see. Well done though! :) That's a good idea, leaving high-level armours dotted around...

I unlocked the vampire! By the end of that run I was doing ~ 140 damage. I found the Glowing Guardian :D

I like that you can survive trying to worship him if you're high enough level. I'm also glad that even though it's annoying to have to farm money as tinker, it only takes like a minute to max out. I'm trying to beat all the dungeons as every class, and quickly discovering how useless the priest is outside of the crypt...

My first run on normal was as the priest. I was a dwarf, nothing could kill me by the end. But I guess he'd be less useful now...

Not so useless after all... I thought, how about maximising the priest's Good Health bonus? This is what happened. One of my highest scores as well I think, 41140.

Yeah, the graphics aren't fantastic. But Derek Yu (he of Spelunky) has made an alternative tileset, I didn't bother downloading though.
