Good idea on paper, in practice it felt a bit off. That said, I'm a bit biased (see below)

The main reason for me was that RNG can completely screw you over: I killed the first monster on first try by chance, and ended up getting quite frustrated at the imbalanced third fight - only learned about the Shield skill when looking into the source to try and cheat my way past. After that, it went pretty well.

The increasing complexity of adding new layers to each fight was neat. RPG Maker's somewhat... rudimentary battle system made the whole experience a bit shallow, but you've made good use of the cards it dealt you.

I thought your game made good use of the theme. I don't really like all the walking around in RPG games so this was right down my alley. I found it difficult to devise any sort of strategy, but perhaps I am not persistent enough? Great job!

Story development seems a bit slow and repetitive. The incremental increasing complexity of a battle is cool, but it gets difficult to hit on the right combo of moves. Nice art.

Nice little RPG! I couldn't beat the wizard, since I just couldn't seem to get the timing of the silence, shield, along with attacking right.
