Started playing Rogue Legacy... any tips?

So I'm level 11 and I'm not making it very far through the castle. I've bought a couple armor upgrades and got the double jump. I've died probably close to 30 times so far. Fun game but I feel like I'm not making much progress. Any tips on way to advance further?

If you die with enough money to buy an upgrade/item, you had a pretty good run. Just keep on keeping it on.

The game is little more than a grind fest. So just keep grinding.

Just keep playing and acquiring castle upgrades. The game will eventually become piss-easy with enough upgrades.

It's all about throwing yourself back in there until you learn all the enemy strengths and weaknesses.

It's similar to dark souls in this regard: it can be incredibly frustrating at first but after you've exposed yourself to the enemies and bosses enough times you suddenly realize you're progressing further and further. Then once you've mastered enemy patterns you can fly through the game barely paying attention.

Okay cool, thanks all. Wasn't sure if I was missing something because I'm dying so much but I guess it's just a slow steady progression to getting stronger and better.

The game is pretty much built on you dying so much. It's one case where death is not always a bad thing - especially if you get screwed over with a nasty combination of character flaws.

Pretty much this.

Early on hunting chests should be your main priority.

If you find the entrance to an area you aren't prepared for at least go one screen in to see if there's a chest. You can get lucky and get really good stuff
