Can't get out of level 1
Just started, the game immediately puts you in what I'm calling level 1. I can't figure out how to finish. Am I looking for stairs? I can't kill all the monsters, and I can't even restart or abandon the level. I don't mind a superhard game where you die a lot... isn't this supposed to be "roguelike"? Isn't it supposed to be random levels, etc? But I'm stuck in the same fixed level and can't get out.

If you're starting as a Human Guard, that's a tutorial level. We call it the "live fire tutorial", all you need to do is follow the blue hints to complete the level, although don't be afraid to die and then select the more in-depth tutorials :)

Just for reference, Desktop Dungeons isn't like other roguelikes: There's usually only 1 main dungeon, your character will level up multiple times on that screen. It's also all about exploration: You regenerate health when you uncover new terrain, so exploring is a resource. Hope you come right with the game!

Okay, I rescind my ♥♥♥♥♥ing. It took about a dozen attempts to get through the first level and now it seems to be more like what I was expecting... A frustrating first impression, to be sure...

Wait for it lol, the curve is pretty big in beginning. I still have trouble getting past areas after first couple dungeons. I am missing a kill order mechanic or something. Seems you have to always battle higher levels just to level as there are not enough monsters to level any other way. Take to much damage a time or 2 and its all over. Good luck to you
