I'm a big fan of Rogue, so of course I picked up Desktop Dungeons and got into it.
I've got a couple victories under my belt, and (of course) a couple losses as well.
One thing I'm wondering is about those losses. Once I've gotten to a point in a dungeon where I know that I'm not going to be able to beat the boss, what should I do? As in, is there any difference? There's some kind of a score that's calculated when the game is over, but does that score mean anything? Most importantly though, is there some particular way that I can turn a total loss into less of a loss?
Should I charge the final boss and die gloriously?
Or (as I suspect) is it all a waste of time and should I just hit that
Retire button as soon as I know I won't win?
