Ya i more meant, you could look at how brogue phrases the equipment descriptions to tell you about the penalties and minimums without giving away the quality level.

Also, what's the low level guy supposed to do with the equipment, just hang onto it in case he makes it to the higher levels? It seems like with the stats penalties all the longswords, axes, leather armor etc. is useless until much later. And I'm going to be using cloth armor and knuckledusters for a while.

Positive:
I really like the animations. Just cast blink and it looked awesome. Even the turn spinner's a good call.

I like the way you can change the zoom level too. Maybe pinch-to-zoom support as well?

Maybe something like this?


For example orange "*18" in the corner of the glaive icon means that strength requirement of "typical glaive" (glaive+0) is 18.

Strength requirement of Leather Armor+0 is 11, so you need just one Potion of Strength to be able to wear it without penalties. Furthermore there are +n-quality items, strength requirement of Mail Armor+3 is 10 so you don't need strength boost at all. But currently weapon is more important, it's very hard to kill boss without decent weapon.

Finally released!  8)

Here is the link:
https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.watabou.pixeldungeon

- one time, somehow my character ended up in the same tile as a rat. I could move off, but the rat got a free turn cause i couldnt attack... myself?

Pixel Dungeon 0.1.1 released. Nothing particularly interesting there, just some bug fixes, but now it should be playable on froyo devices. And that bug with two chars on the same tile, hopefully, is fixed too.

- Marsupial rats are nerfed

Thank god.

Feature request:
Can you think of a way to reduce the chance of this:
 - Adjacent to monster
 - Go to click on the monster to attack
 - Accidentally click on the tile beside a monster
 - End up taking a couple free hits from the monster as I reposition unintentionally


My ideas for this so far, not sure any are great, but:
 - Dedicated attack button you can optionally press?
 - Confirmation dialog (probably a bad idea)?
 - Some sort of auto-zoom when in dangerous situations?
 - Something else?

Also the click-to-move doesn't abort when you get hit, so a rat can surprise you on your way and you just continue on getting beaten up by him until you reach your destination.

Hey. I just had to register here to tell you how much I like this game! This is the first roguelike on android I can see myself playing for more than an hour or two. If you keep updating I'll probably never stop playing this :)

That is the problem indeed. I like the idea of dedicated attack button but mobile screens are so small... :-\ I'll try to squeeze it in somewhere.

Also the click-to-move doesn't abort when you get hit, so a rat can surprise you on your way and you just continue on getting beaten up by him until you reach your destination.
Click-to-move doesn't abort when you get hit but it does abort when there is a new enemy in your field of view, so it can't really surprise you.

Thank you very much! :)
I'm going to release a new version tonight or maybe tomorrow morning but there is still no new content (levels, items, monsters), just bug fixes and ui tweaks :-[

I found a bug.

Actually happened several times: when I walk near a monster to attack him, the character moves toward him, but instead of stop in the desired spot and wait for my tapping, the character keeps in "moving" status, it is like moving, but without displacing. The "thinking" icon appears in bottom right, and the enemy keeps attacking me until I die, and tapping the screen does  not responds.

Actually tested under Archos 70IT tabletpc. I don't remember the Droid version number, but it is Froyo-based custom firmware.

Please fix it cuz it's quite annoying!!!!

Without having that into account, the game is nice and kawaii.

Also I would dare to say that "switch to ASCII symbols" mode would make it even a greater game.

Keep up your good work mate! :D

That is not actually a bug. Most likely you equipped some armor too heavy for you (scale or plate, the effect of leather and mail shouldn't be so dramatic). When you equip heavy armor you are slowed down, that's why enemies have enough time to hit you several times: http://roguetemple.com/forums/index.php?topic=2826.msg23455#msg23455.

The "typical STR req" info is really great.

I'm guessing gold is totally useless right now? Unless I've missed something.
I kinda wish there was more food laying around, I find myself starving most of the time. But I guess that'll change when you incorporate shops/vendors(?).

Also I was wondering if wearing too heavy armor makes your hunger go up faster? Or am I just imagining things..

Funny that I didn't thought about adding it before because I just knew those numbers  :)

Exactly!

Not  directly. But wearing armor too heavy for you makes you move slower so it indeed looks like you are getting hungry faster.
