Cartoonish, WOW-style graphics and art design, randomly generated dungeons, hoards of evil monsters, endless piles of loot and gold. The developers set out to craft a well-balanced, boiled down version of the classic Action-RPG, dungeon crawler, hack n slash lootfest and I think they did a great job. sure it lacks multiplayer, suffers from lag with a couple dozen enemies on-screen (at least the XBLA version) and offers really only one mode of play besides a fishing mini-game, but i paid 1200 MS points and have put a solid 15 hours in and still haven't gotten bored. well worth the price!

This is, however, my first real foray into the world of the hack n slash dungeon crawler... and i'm obsessed. I play 360 and MAC, anyone have any essential A-RPG titles I'm missing out on? preferably cheap, older ones. I might have to save up for Diablo 3 now that I've discovered my new favorite genre.

It's a great game!
I've been playing it for a few months now and I love it.


Thumbs up!

i've never played the series. do you think it would be worth going back and playing through, or should i just wait for 3 to come out?

nice!
it never ceases to amaze me how much mileage i'm getting out of a simple, cheap, cutesy game like this.
are you a fan of the genre? or just torchlight?

get part II...it'll be cheap, and it's way better than torchlight IMO

Bought this on the Steam Christmas sale for like £3, not a bad little game. Found it hard to really get into it though, especially with the ridiculously small bag and system of sending your dog back to town every 3 minutes.
