    I think it's because I either try to get close quickly, only for the blades to close in behind me, or get trapped in a hallway where they can cast faster than I can break them down. Given that they...

    Bah, L3 with 396 for me. Those conjurers drive me crazy. New seed up shortly.

    Those should sort you, Jurple, commercial RLs aside (and assuming that Nethack is an acquired taste). Pixel Dungeon is...

    My dodgy internet connection means that Path of Exile is often unplayable, so I'm actually tempted to give this a go to see if it is the ARPG that doesn't make me hate myself for playing it. I'm...

    Sorry for the delay; work was pretty insane this week. New seed is up - will have a go at last weeks over lunch today.

    Edit: Level 3 again... time to read up on those Goblin Conjurers.

    Honestly, I play it more like a turn-based-strategy (and in a similar way to AI War); I pause, plan, then fast-forward until I need to do something else. Obviously the fast-forward bit is unlikely to...

    The IL2 games have also been kept alive by what looks like a truly huge series of mods; it's certainly enough to tempt me to pick up a HOTAS if I ever have the time to actually use it.

    Heh, a crap one for me. Only made it to level 2 before screwing up quaff ID and eating a portion of incineration. Shouldn't rush. Second attempt I made it to level six, but I think I'm either going...

    It sounds like we had a similar monkey-based experience up until the key; I made it back up to Level 3 to try and use it though :)

    I enjoy both of them a lot. Unexplored is basically Brogue, but real time with a focus on weapon cooldowns in combat (seriously, it's weird how well he's managed to transpose one into the other) and...

    Heh, aside from some games I played when I was a kid, my played hours are rarely above 30 for a given game. I tend to get bored of mechanics by that point. Main exceptions are the Witcher 3 and...

    I'm largely in agreement with you moth bones; while Brogue does a lot to make roguelikes penetrable, the visual style can be a bit hard to parse sometimes. I find the tiles make it a lot easier, but...
