It's like masturbating with sandpaper, painful but ultimately satisfying.

Excellent game. Has everything that I love about video games. Combats that pushes you around silly, thus requiring you to learn the encounter in order to succeed. When you think a fight is too hopeless it's probably because you're missing a key component! In example, focusing a high priority target down. Or maneuvering around the field in order to get the foothold against the enemy. The game also features some really well designed mechanics to bite into. I spent hours thinking about my character build or party composition. How the builds will synergy with each other, et cetera.
The progression in this game is so satisfying. You start as a rag tag group of dungeoneers armed with rags for armor, crude weaponry for arms. Eventually, as you fight your way tooth and nail up levels, gaining better resources. You're able to outfit your little posse with military grade equipment - so, so, satisfying when you progress through crappy rags to actual armor. It felt both well earned and instilled a sense of achievement within me, seeing my group become stronger!
Of course, we mustn't forget the music either. It's a complete joy to listen to the game's beautiful sound tracks. Ancient Factory had some awesome tracks. The final fight against the enemy had amazing tracks as well. Never a dull moment, honestly. For me, Dungeon Rat's music rates highly up there among Ravenloft: Stone Prophet's OST.
If you haven't already played this and are on the fence. Please give this game a shot. It's very much worth it!

Review from Steam

I loved Age of Decadence's combat system, and this game is exactly what it said on the can. Tactical combat in the AoD world.
It's harsh, gritty, no hand-holding, yes tactics. RNG is there for you to overcome it. Ideally your strategy should be robust enough so that randomness is a non-factor in your playthrough. That can be difficult, since the combat system is very complex, but it's complex in an enjoyable, albeit masochistic way. My only real criticism is that most fights involving bomb throwers are a source of "bad RNG". For some of the fights, your code red priority is to kill them before they can throw any bombs. If you play solo, you might not be able to do that. If they do get a bomb off, due to the way the bomb system works, if you get critted your run is over. If you were playing Ironman, tough luck.
For me, the most enjoyable difficulties are either Normal Ironman or Hard non-Ironman. Strikes the best balance between allowing for tactical mishaps and actually being challenging.
EDIT:
I have finally beaten the game on Murderous Psychopath Ironman. My proudest gaming achievement ever.

Review from Steam

Yeah, I finally beat it on solo murderous psychopath after two dozen tries and it was the most fun I had in turn-based CRPG combat since Age of Decadence.
Nice short game with a narrow scope that does it well. Irontower is the best studio and I hope they stick around for a long time.

Review from Steam

Wow, this is really difficult game! You want challenge for 1 USD - then get this game!
