Use healing items and attack or defense spells with proper timing to keep the Hero alive and fighting! Clear all floors of a dungeon to get treasure! Clear all floors with a path covering every square to get a perfect bonus! Each 5×5 floor is packed with treasures, traps, monsters, items, and surprises!
Keiichi Sugiyama’s unique mix of chiptunes and humming compliments Yamada’s retro-themed world perfectly!
He is joined by Enka BOSSA’s founder and singer, Caorinho Fujiwara, who composed the Japanese theme song: “Gyakkou Zinsei” (Life Against the Tide) and mystery singer Nagasa Bonus, whose smooth voice flows over the chiptunes of the English version’s theme song: ”Retrograde life”.
