As you progress, your character can level up and unlock weapons mightier than the toilet brush he is armed with at the start. Unlock new heroes to fight by your side, you will no doubt need them as the battle intensity heightens. Select the attack you wish to carry out, and tap on the opponent you wish to deal your hefty blow to. You will encounter battles and treasure alike by tap-navigating your way into shady spaces around the grid-based map.

▲ Unlock and choose an attack command and enemy - options differ depending on your hero!

▲ Whether there is some lovely loot or a savage skeleton army waiting in the darkness is for you to find out.

▲ Upgrade your potions and weapons in the shop, and up your inventory to deal with enemies and traps you will come across along the way.

You never know what is lurking around the corner, so prepare yourself fittingly in the shop. Buy potions, spells, and handy tools using gold earned in battle and looted from treasure chests. These can help protect you against traps and foes alike.

Hop into the Tavern to add friends ready to engage in battle. Who will be the last one standing, and who will puff into thin air - that will depend on your commitment!
