Game Description

The best stories all begin with a talking shovel. When your peaceful village of South Arc begins to be overrun by vicious monsters from the nearby woods, your neighbors are unwilling to leave their homes. But a talking shovel convinces you to turn a small hole on the outskirts of the village into a huge dungeon to lure monsters, then trap them before they can do more harm. Design the level from the ground up, adding over 20 different rooms, including cathedrals and trash heaps, to attract different monsters. Then trap them, giving you new weapons and items to use against even more beastial baddies! You can even share your own levels with your friends via local Wi-Fi.
