Our Rating: ★★★½☆ :: A TAXING JOURNEY :: Read Our Full Review >>

Dwarf Quest is a roguelike that strips the genre to its very basics, serving as more of an action game with roguelike rules, but some flaws drag the game down.

What's New

* You can now buy extra Battle Cards at altars for 300 gold apiece

* Fixed minotaur / lever bug: should you die in this room, you will spawn outside and can try again

* Added Restart Level option for when you're stuck (shouldn't happen anymore from now on) or want to try again using different tactics

* Improved overall collision detection for all levels

* Bigger collision box for the dwarf, meaning no more misclicks during combat

* Active Battle Card effects are displayed on screen, just below your healthbar

Thank you for your continued support!
