So can you only kill them by bumping from one of the northerly directions or by fireball?  Could produce some interesting gameplay, that  :)

Do some tube act like a teleport spell? a disconnected section of the map you can access (and leave) only by tube may be interesting too...
They should contain some enemy, and loot...something like a vault, actually :)

It works like a standard roguelike, you move towards an enemy to attack them.  If you have fire flower (active for limited amount of turns) then you can attack using a throw/fire like mechanic.  Star power will give you limited invincibility for a limited number of turns as well.

@El Barto:  There could be pipes for hidden areas but for now, I'm probably just going to stick to up and down stairs type.  We'll see how much progress I make this week.

The second pipe in the screenshot at the bottom of page 3 is in view, outside Mario's view range for debugging purposes btw.

@XLambda:

Oh hey, I forgot to add: Working Title for the game idea I had, 7DRLRL. :P

/obvious

Of course, you're free to call it whatever you want.

If you're throwing in to the 7DRL, they're asking contestants to add their game entry here:
http://roguebasin.roguelikedevelopment.org/index.php/7DRL_Contest_2012

You can register an account at 7DRL.org and make your own blog post too if you like.  Should get some laughs.

That's hilarious! I didn't even think of that one! That MUST be the subtitle!  ;D

Mmh, yeah, probably going to do that. :)

  I've just come to the disappointing realization that having a space ship as your avatar does not garner much feeling or connection.

  I'll continue my project but it makes me kind of sad. I'm going to focus more on a robust engine so that I can use it again later. So that way at least something good comes of it all.

  Here is a screen shot.


Apparently I do not know how to post a screen shot.

Just give it, I mean him, a personality. Make it a living thing.

Not when you link to your harddrive anyway. :), upload it to that web thing first. Or, click "Additional Options" when posting below your post. (note the second option does not work for me).

  Web Thingy? I googled it and found nothing to show screen shots. I did, unfortunately, find several pics I wish I hadn't seen.

  I swear I've posted screen shots before. How am I screwing this up?

  The upload option doesn't work for me either.

EDIT: Screw Screen Shots. Took my half a day to figure out how to only shoot when I clicked on an adjacent ship....Apparently GridSize != GridScale...stupid!

if distance_to_object (ShipO) < global.GridSize  //take damage if adjacent
  {
     HullPoints = HullPoints - ShipO.AttackValue;
  }

Ok I was trying to be funny.  :-\ Upload your picture to the Web somewhere, then use the <img>uploaded picture link</img>

P.s Stop looking at TotR forums, you are supposed to be coding  ;)  You would never catch me wasting my time like that.  Which reminds me, I really should start coding...

Closest would be a 3D 360 degree particle approach, essentially in the middle of Hyberbolic Rogue's Sphere I suppose.

Yep, colored bits of particle instead of "fancy" ASCII---we'd definitely be through the looking glass there folks.

Hyperbolic Rogue does not take place on a sphere, it is rather a hyperboloid (but not in a normal space) :) Anyway, Hyperbolic Rogue has 7 directions of movement, so it is a Seven Directional Roguelike. I have tried to make other things also count to 7 for the 7DRLC version.

  Yeah seriously Cor! You have a reputation to uphold. Don't mess up.

My last 2 entrants were 4DRLs, so I have plenty of time right? :-\

  Yay I already found some emergent game play. I fired off a Sun Crusher in between two Warbirds and then blew it up with my phasers. BOOM. Blackhole forms in between the 2 Warbirds.

Looking sweet Jo.

No progress today, but I did managed to watch a couple of eps of the Walking Dead.  That sheriff dude finally did something cool, 'bout time. :)
Seriously I did manage to "start" a project, hopefully tomorrow I will get some serious work done.
