What makes the game easier to understand is the ease with which you can identify Morty's, which basically looks like paper, rock, or scissors. Except for your own Morty, of course.
Apart from being different from other Mortys, your Morty also doesn't have any significant advantages or disadvantages compared to others.

The Dark Book
Adventure RPG with a dark world where you have to go a long way in search of a magic book. You will destroy many monsters and also meet friendly characters who will guide you on the right route in your quest.
The main character is a warrior in the form of a skeleton, which must be developed by adding new abilities and improving skills.
