Crypto of Necrodancer is a dungeon search game that combines rhythry action games and rhythm games.

If you die, return to the lobby and start over from the beginning. The structure of the dungeon is randomly generated. In addition, all items and coins obtained in the previous play are lost, but only diamonds can be brought back. If you rescue the NPC in the dungeon, you will unlock items and upgrades in the lobby. That’s why we consume diamonds. Unlocked items can be obtained and purchased in the dungeon.
