Cardinal Quest 1.0 Now Available!
« on: August 11, 2011, 08:03:35 AM »
My game Cardinal Quest is now finally available on www.cardinalquest.com for windows, mac & linux!

Cardinal Quest is an arcade-style dungeon-crawler inspired by 1980s classics such as Gauntlet, Red-Box D&D and Golden Axe: Choose your champion and begin your quest to slay the Evil Minotaur!

Three distinct characters await you, each providing their own unique experience:

The Fierce Fighter - who can stir himself into a berserk frenzy.
The Stealthy Thief - a mysterious assassin who dispatches his foes from the shadows.
The Mystical Wizard - able to bend the forces of the elements to his will.

Have fun,
Ido.

Awesome congrats on making release!  I hope you find a comparable level of success to Dungeons of Dredmor in the long run!   8)

Played some today. Pretty simple from what I could tell but still fun. Streamlined inventory so the best equipment automatically gets equipped.

How roguelike-ish is it exactly besides random levels?

I'm waiting to try the demo when it comes out. I hope the demo lets you pick between all the characters to see how they play.

The idea of Gauntlet mixed with roguelikes sounds really cool.

After playing some more I find it to easy. Not much in the way of strategy. More walk up to enemy and hit them. You find spells that have cooldown for a certain amount of turns before you can use it, no hunger so you are free to walk through each level and find everything.

Only tried it a couple of games, but its very easy and not as much depht that one is used to when playing other roguelikes. But this is more like a light-roguelike and the presentation (graphics, sound, interface) is awesome! Good work!
