It looks quite nice and.. well.. here are some observations:

-the player character can't die, which I guess is nice
-only one monster type: soldier
-invisible soldiers attack sometimes from nowhere, then die (?)
-a bit sluggish in my pc
-poor level design, especially inside houses which are basically labyrinths with only one exit
-gui is not intuitive
-non-standard keyboard commands (always bad in roguelikes!)
-you guys are italian and made a japanese(?) roguelike? What was that:)

Hi Krice!
Thanks for your interest. The game is just an alpha and we have a lot of work to do. We have to introduce more enemies, items, techniques, world explreation, etc...
Keyboard commands are not standard, i'll change them (i was thinking to make them configurable).
What do you mean player character can't die?
I've just fixed the bug of invisible soldiers, it will be ok in v0.3.0.
The game is based on the japanese anime/manga Hokuto no Ken. It's very popular in italy (aka Ken il guerriero), so we decided to make a game about it. ^_^
Bye

He doesn't get any damage. Soldiers can't hit him, they always miss.

Well I can't blame you. Manga and anime are huge in Finland. We are nuts about Japan, because japanese are almost as crazy as we are.

That not true. Kenshiro, Rei, Shin and Jagger are masters, so they start the game at high level. Thery're not invulnerable, they're just too tough for simple soldiers. The really fun for players is to create a custom character (he starts from level 1 and with no special attacks). Btw, i'll introduce some quest too.
