Pixel Dungeon belongs to the Rogue-like genré of games.
One of the conventions of this genré is that character death is permanent and frequent.
So, don’t worry if you’re dying a lot and haven’t managed to slay the final boss.

Here is a Guide Directory to help you survive this deadly dungeon.
There are also various strategies on the Strategies Board in the forums.
NOTE: The guides listed below were written with only the original Pixel Dungeon in mind, and does not account for the various existing mods.
For comments/inquiries regarding a specific mod, please refer to the corresponding Mod Boards in the forums.
