It certainly lives up to what it claims to be, and if you're a fan of games like Binding of Isaac I'm sure you'll enjoy it as well.
So far I've yet to see the witch that cursed us again. I wonder where she's disappeared off to, and the town/village is no more than 4 buildings it seems.
The game's mechanics where the weapons break after some use is rather interesting, and at first I thought it was going to be a hindrance. Yet so far I find it to be rather fun, although it can get a little hectic trying to get a weapon while fending off a boss.
During your visits back to down you do have the ability to upgrade your weapons and spells, along with finding a checkpoint that takes you straight to the boss you recently reached.
