    Why the fuck is this not on the codex?!?!

    The game just came out and i decided to try it in hopes of wasting some. Turned out to pretty good base building rpg with side scrolling combat. The game is about dwarfs killing garbage like goblins. Neanderthal this game is made for you mate,the easiest difficulty is even called elf :).

    The fuck it is sold for 1 fucking dollar?!?!?!

    Played through this a while ago, around last Christmas or so when I got it in the sale. Decent game yes, explored every single location and unlocked every single achievement in 18 hours of playtime.

    It's somewhat of a metroidvania with basebuilding, you explore locations and gather resources and build up your base. Kill orcs, find useful stuff in dungeons, etc. Fun game that's definitely worth its low price. Sidescrolling dungeon crawler with resource management and base building.

    Someone who's played it, how does it compare to say, Terraria? (That's sure what it looks like, with a few more RPG UI elements.)

    Will never played a game with "graphics" like that.

    Amiga in 1986 was doing better.

    It doesn't play like Terraria at all. There is some resource gathering, which you can do yourself at first (from trees/ore nodes/loot), but you can get other dwarves to do it for you as you free them from captivity (from map locations you have visited and liberated), and the base building aspect isn't customized like in Terraria, but more like Kingdom's (where you pay the required amount of resources and the building pops up).

    There is no base defense and the game is largely a side-scrolling action adventure platformer with some puzzles, and RPG elements. It's actually quite decent and worth a buy.

    umm, that's a shitty arcade port that doesn't take advantage of Amiga's custom chipset. I'd post screencaps of Defender of the Crown (1986), and numberous others, but you're a waste of time.

    How twitchy is it? Can you play it without a controller?

    Looks like it. I picked it up (there is/was a free DLC too), but haven't gone round to trying it out. Saw some people saying it was basically a dwarf-themed Kingdom which didn't help motivation as despite being a lover of the bearded diminutive mining devices I also grew super bored of Kingdom super quick (despite loving the art style). Your review means I'll definitely give it a go at some point, cheers.

    I'm playing it from time to time, just level 9 atm.
    Throwing and bleeding seem to be the safest way to win most of the battles.
    Thanks for sharing your findings! But I believe that 8 points in throwing (not 11 as you mentioned earlier) would be enough to perfect it.
    Something like this, without the crossed out skills:
