Indulge Lady Tallowmere and see how far through her lovingly violent dungeons you can delve in this 2D indie action roguelike-inspired platformer. New rooms are procedurally generated every time you play, meaning you'll have to be on your guard for every randomly-placed enemy, elite, boss, and treasure chest you'll come across.

Each room gets progressively bigger, harder, and more rewarding the further you go.

The concept is simple yet hard to master:

  • Raise your shield to block enemy attacks.
  • Lower your shield and strike your foes when the timing is right.
  • Jump or move to avoid traps, or use your shield to reduce damage taken.
  • Find the key to advance to the next room.
  • Collect weapons, outfits, headgear, and shields of various rarities to aid your journey.
  • Turn in souls from slain enemies to increase your base stats and passive abilities.
  • Stay alive as long as you can!

Brace yourself as you learn the quirks of each foe, trap, and room type so you can strive for that "one more run" high-score victory! Each dungeon is infinite in length so it's up to you to push your limits; local scoreboards and online leaderboards let you track your greatest efforts.

Available for Windows, macOS, and Linux. Play with keyboard (and optionally mouse buttons), or use your favourite gamepad/controller.

Tallowmere offers single-player and local co-op madness (up to 4 players) for fun frantic couch gaming.

Tallowmere reviews and comments

Translated by

At the end of the game 4H (much more than enough to understand all the content of the game): + a good defouloir + an instinctive grip + the price resulted + of the music coaching + the game in Coop-the price-repetitive (the same goes for the music of training!)-have the chance to get a powerful weapon at the beginning of the game and you will cross all levels without real difficulty-a single handful of monsters including 2 that combined, will lead you to a certain death, the others will barely slow you down if you like these games where the death is definitive and where each run brings nothing to the next, that the sleek 2D style you shimmery and that you do not run after the contents in foison, Tallowmere will entertain you long hours. Otherwise you will regret the purchase from the first minutes of play.

Funny Rouge-like Timeskiller, with patches RPG elements that will tighten you after the first launch. As for me it is possible to play it even before the blue, and in a compartment with a port on the phone, you can play it anywhere, and anytime, and now to the best and the worst sides. Pros: Styling Randomly generated levels of Extras. Boosters for the complexity of the game process can eat kittens Free DLC, for which in Play, I ask for as much as 120 rubles Cons: Friza because Of the pre-multiplied levels at the beginning of the game, when you do not have normal things, you can get to fight with The boss of the same soundtrack Overpriced, for this creation Can eat Kittens In general game, fun, and addictive (so far on the phone in it fills). Recommend it will not, because the taste and color of all the markers are different XD 9 burnt kittens/9

A great game. Defouloir with a choice of Nice weapon and for all tastes. They all have an interest in the situation. Having used such a weapon at such a time makes it more likely to advance in the game. The fact of spammer a bazooka for example is really enjoyable, but we can also sneak our target or just attack him with the axe. In the way of an RPG, the weapons and armor of the game are looter (except at the merchant) and with various characteristics. We can jump to the infinite. Very practical, this gives a control of the terrain and the space well ruined and quite fun. Unfortunately the game lacks content. Once the threshold of difficulty reaches Max, it quickly becomes repetitive because there is nothing else to do but to move from room to room, without any end. The real goal of the game is more successes than anything else. Inevitably it inflationary on the life course that will probably not very long for the majority of people, but precisely, it depends on the people. Because a departed does not really end until you die, so it can last as long as it amuse you. In the end it's a game that I really advice, it's worth its price and for me, it really was a big favorite. I'll even say one of my favorite games.
