AKAPAN NITE is a simplified turn-based dungeon crawler,
where the goal is to collect hearts and get back above ground.
An ordinary salaryman gets caught up in some trouble on the train on his way to work. He somehow manages to escape the chaos and ends up at an old shrine, where he falls down a large hole. It turns out that he has somehow fallen into a dungeon ruled by monsters. Brandishing his umbrella and his trusty bag as weapons, this red-panted knight begins his adventure to fight his way back above ground.
In this game there is no need to hurry. The game is turn based. After you take a turn, the monsters will take a turn. By collecting all the hearts on a level, you are able to move up to the next level. You don't necessarily need to defeat all the monsters to clear a level. It's important to be able to understand each monster, and predict what they will do next. Sometimes you will come across items as you move through the stages. There are many powerful offensive and defensive items, so make sure to put them to good use on your adventure.
On your adventure, you are going to come across many strange and curious Japanese-style monsters. Monsters also sometimes drop Monster Cards. These cards contain the monsters' abilities, so using them allows you to perform Special Moves based on the monsters' abilities. Monsters that you come across are added to the Library and you can get rewards based on the amount of times you defeat them.
As you progress through levels, you will end up with various weapons, shields, armor, and other items. Such items can make you stronger, allowing you to take on tougher monsters. As you walk through a level, your HP will gradually decrease due to hunger. By eating food, you can recover your HP. If your HP reaches 0, you fail the level. You can also trade for items in the in-game shop.
