Arcade "roguelike" - graphical hack & slash (image heavy)
« on: January 30, 2011, 02:09:08 AM »
Good Day to you all,

Had a day off work for a public holiday on Wednesday, so using a few bits and bobs from around my PC I put this little game together.

It is a fairly simple dungeon crawl, where the objective is to eliminate as many monsters as possible within a short time limit (3 minutes). It is graphical (see screenshots and video below).  More of an 'arcade' style roguelike than a traditional deep turn based dungeon crawl.  

Some screenshots below.

Basic Instructions / ReadMe:

Power ups which improve different stats are located around the dungeon, as well as lots of monsters (quantity not diversity).
To Play - SPACE to shoot fiery arrows, TAB to blast enemies with magic, ARROWS to run around and attack enemies with your sword (by running into them).














Thanks,
Matt

Very cool! Where did you get the graphics?

So it has nothing to do with roguelikes? Well, I guess it's a nice game.

Seems pretty far along for a thing done generally on a Wednesday...I should think you'd do well to keep developing at this on other random days off in the future.   :)

Hi, thanks for feedback...

Graphics were either my own or renders of poser models.
Although I did put it together on Wednesday (and a bit on Fri/Sat) I already had most of the code and graphics from earlier projects I'd written in years gone by.

I guess it is not exactly a traditional roguelike...

Ah don't listen to Krice. He thinks he owns the definition of Roguelike. If it's not a rogue clone with a different theme it's not roguelike enough for some people.

I think Krice may be correct in this case - this is a real-time hack 'n' slash with little to no procedural content.  Looks pretty though.

  The dungeon is different everytime and the enemies are in different locations. Dunno if it is procedural, but it is varied.
