I think its worth checking out if you guys have plus. I was originally going to do a Let's Play of it, but then quickly realised Rogue Likes are horrible to do Let's plays on as you die constantly.

Basically how the game works is you collect money for different upgrades to your characters. However each character only gets one shot at the castle, after they die their child picks up the mantle and traits are randomised, the castle is also randomised, but youc an lock it down on a specific layout, however this will cost you a % of your gold earned on that run. Everytime you enter the castle you have to give up all your gold. The different classes don't really play different per say but the stat differences will change how you tackle the game.

The game is damn hard and plays similar to a Metroidvania style of game. I don't know if i'd have put down money for this game due to the level of frustration it can cause at times. Although that said overall the gameplay is fun. There's a New Game + with remixed enemies and bosses, I haven't got there yet, but i did get into a fight with a remix boss and that was stupidly hard.

Doesn't matter how many times you die, it won't impede you. Honestly choosing the wrong character for certain bosses or even just your own playstyle will contribute to that death tally hugely.

My main advice is when you buy an upgrade the cost of all upgrades increases a little. There is a trophy for putting one in every skill but i'd suggest prioritising what is useful to your playstyle first as living longer and getting larger pools of money per run is more important.

Blacksmith items prices are fixed so buy whatever you like. Runes from the enchantress drastically jump up in price. My tips for runes get a double jump if possible, bounty for gold boost is useful, vampirism is decent but balance runes give you 1 mp and 1 hp per kill so is better then the vampirism which is +1hp per kill.

I'd setup runes as 1 double jump, 1 dash, 2 balance/vampire and either another balance/vampire/bounty/haste. TBH though you likely will be able to buy a few runes i'm just trying to advise for cost effectiveness, so you don't buy too many.

Expand to the right.  I think its right and down from the enchantress.  You likely need to unlock the Spelunker class to get access to it.  If you get the Spelunker class unlocked it costs a load but you unlock a light on his hat (the game describes this as just an ordinary lamp that does nothing), however its the best upgrade in the game.  It highlights every single chest on the map (but not the map, but you'll know the general location of chests), this can make locating the equipment unlocks a lot easier.  Also if you have glaucoma or go into the dark dungeon you can turn on the lamp and you can see clearly.  The Spelunker class in itself unlocks a 30% bounty bonus (keep in mind the class itself is weak so he'll only be useful when you are used to the game).  I don't recall any other upgraded classes having a skill i used, maybe the spellmage one thats very close to the top of the tower.  Read the description and see if you care about the upgrade, the other issue is sometimes you need to unlock class upgrades to expand the castle.  FYI I killed the final boss with a shinobi, but that was complete flook.

The dash is not essential, but he made the final boss considerably easier, so thats one place you definitely want to use it ( i think boss fights in general actually).

There's a trophy for only 15 deaths and no castle lockdowns, but go for that later. Locking down the castle can make locating and killing bosses easier (but i used it mainly for getting fairy chests). Also in new game + you get a 50% bounty bonus automatically and there's just a load more money in general.

ill have a look again, i went down the left side of the tower and got the crit chance/ damage unlocked so it's going to be a lot more expensive for me. Is the bribe charon skill really useful or do i just leave that for now? it currently costs 610 but if i level anything else up it's going to go up in price

Na i think that skill is worthless, normally you'll only have money left above the lowest skills, which will barely be above 2000 even later on. That would make you only saving 200 gold and thats being optimistic. Although it does get you access to the lich class which has low health but its health increases up to a cap while it levels up. That class can be pretty decent if your damage is good and you can one shot the basic enemies.

My mistake Apparently vampirism gives +2HP and balance +1HP/+1MP so a mix is probably best.
