As a lover of roguelikes, I continue to be amazed by developers’ inventiveness when working on these kinds of games. In Hades, For instance, we played as the god of the underworld named Hades. In The Binding of Isaac, we learned a story about a boy with biblical themes, and In Going Under, we visited the part of an intern for a giant corporation that can clear levels and return to the beginning when there is a problem. Dandy Ace also takes us to the point of conception where we are the role of a magician who anticipates facing trouble.

Before I go, I’ll say I think Dandy Ace is a great game within its genre that its players should note. In the reviews, people frequently cite Hades as a reference, and the similarities are seen. As a rule, relax and read about a handsome hero who fell through the glass.
The story centers around magician Lele, known as”the “Green-Eyed Illusionist.” Everything was going well as his career was advancing upwards, and his followers were growing… until an adorable and young Dandy Ace showed up on the scene and quickly put the spotlight away from himself, leaving Lele without a single thing. The man, afflicted by jealousy and anger, decides to turn to “dark magic,” an optical mirror, which is a mysterious artifact. He locks his opponent inside a look-glass, and the victim must undergo a series of tests to return to the world.
The adventure will also meet additional characters, like The magician’s sisters, who serve as the main character’s assistants and are entrapped together with the protagonist. The monologues and dialogue are well-crafted and include plenty of humor in their dialogue, and Lele occasionally chuckles throughout his story regardless of our wins or defeats.
The weapons of Dandy Ace are gambling cards (and aren’t KPIs) that can be deadly to our magician. They explode, cause fire, stun enemies, and do other terrible things. Apart from attacking “projectiles,” they also have defensive ones that will instantly increase the hero’s movement by the distance of a certain distance and dramatically improve his mobility. There are 50 maps available in the game. Most of them are not locked as you advance in the game.
The bosses were also excellent (albeit unjustly challenging), and each had its own unique stories and chips. If you think the initial leader is weak and whiny, the leader immediately throws dangerous puddles throughout the arena and leaves the game without a chance to live. Ultimately, this game is bound to satisfy the most avid gamers.
