Story
Play as our nameless protagonist, a wanderer whose only goal is to reach the top of the Tower of Hunger and find LA CRIMA, a stone fabled to be able to restore light to his world. Your only goal is to ascend the Tower of Hunger by reaching the stairs - kill monsters if you want, but run out of lives and you lose the game. It's a challenging chess-style game!

Controls:
Click Blue Marker - Move to location
Click Red Marker - Move to location and kill monster
Hover over Monster - View monster range in green
Click yourself - Skip your move

Hints
- Click on yourself to skip your move!! Its a very important mechanic, as monsters almost always move on their turn
- You start out with only one life. At a couple key levels you gain an extra life, and if you acrue 100+ monster kills you can trade them in for an extra life next time you start the game.
- Monsters always move on their turn (99% of the time at least) - use that to position them away from you
- Hover over new monsters to learn their movement patterns. This is key for survival.
- You don't have to kill all the monsters to move to the next floor!!


Enjoy!

Nice, very playable! Once you start getting the angels in, you have to start doing some chess-like strategy. My only real complaint is that when you die, you have to go all the way through all the easy levels again, heh...

Thanks for giving it a play! The game is very unforgiving, that is one thing I regret haha
