Design / Zelda roguelike
« on: March 28, 2014, 12:36:33 AM »
Let's take some 2D Zelda for Gameboy or SNES and tweak the emulator so to run the game only if some button is pressed, but for a minimum of, say 60 frames, that is 1 second.  We get simultaneous turn-based game, we get a roguelike. Don't we? Does that sound like something you would like to play?

Not quite roguelike, but almost. There are some pretty cool things about it, like animated ASCII art:

On the intro screen hit 'd' and then after the skeleton appears press enter to start the music video.

And also timed input combat minigame. Is there any roguelike that implements similar combat style mechanics or anything among those lines, not necessarily based on timed input but still having combat as a separate minigame of some sort?

I guess something like what golf games use, where aim moves left-right or up-down and you have to press a key to stop it at certain place, combined with usual stats, could be used as well to determine combat outcome. But what I really am trying to figure out is what kind of turn-based minigame could be used instead. Some simplified Mastermind improvisation or something even simpler? Any ideas?

Basically the ultimate goal of these musings would be a roguelike with less monsters but where each single fight is strategic, tactical, different and difficult enough to base the whole game around it while sacrificing some standard roguelike elements, or perhaps even better combining it all together, to produce unique and interesting new roguelike concepts and gameplay mechanics.

Kicked bench, which kicked zombie, who then flew through the window.
