Diablo + Pokemon + Spelunker? Sign me up!

OK, so I spent a bit of time perusing NeoGAF today. So sue me!

Something good came from all of that perusing, though--I found out about an awesome little Internet game that goes by the name of Great Dungeon in the Sky.

A NeoGAFfer who started a thread about the game described it as "Diablo meets Pokemon meets Spelunker," and after putting a few minutes (OK, hours) into it, I have to agree.

I know it doesn't look like much, but take my word
and give it a try anyway.

How does Pokemon fit into all of this, you ask? Well, after you kill one of the game's 300 enemies for the first time you can choose to play as that character the next time around.

It's really quite brilliant (what am I, British?) and loads of fun, so if you're at all into dungeon exlporers I suggest you give this one a try tout de suite (great, now I'm French).

Play: Great Dungeon in the Sky

This is going to eat my life, I can tell before I even play it.

*If you don't hear from me in a week, send help!*

I played it for almost two hours, killed 3/4 dragons, and found the boss...and then it froze. Damn. My hands hurt.

Oh no! Does that mean you have to start over?

I played for quite some time yesterday and never even saw a dragon! I guess I just chose the wrong level path?

I'll try again later :)

I just jumped around and headed down. Three of the four dragons were close to the middle of the map.

OK, I'll have to give it another shot soon. Thanks for the advice :)
