Thanks a lot for this comment! This idea has indeed potential. Maybe I will make a sequel someday that has more enemy types and more items. :)

There seems to be no reason to clear the level.  I fought off hordes that I should have left alone.  The only reason is to make sure there isn't another power up, and there seemed to only be one once.  

Yeah, there is no reason to clear the level except finding the power up. But sometimes there is a second power up by chance. And there are also wells that can be found.

Going up without exploring will make it harder to defeat the endboss.

I hope you still enjoyed the game.

I like the start and the gameplay but I am getting very bad framerate after level 4, to the point it become unplayable. I am on firefox so maybe it come from my browser ?

Thanks for the comment and interest in the game!

I mostly tested it offline. In Firefox I also had framedrops to 10fps. Interesting enough in chromium it runs more stable. I'm also looking forward to provide a linux and windows version for a better experience.
