just played the web version and was impressed.
Especially how you felt there was an element of strategy about it :)

This version comes with 3 new environments and allows Saving and Loading games! PLAY ONLINE

Support and share the new campaign so we can continue working on this! We need the funds to add new features as well as adding a game over screen and short cutscenes for intro and victory!  Remember, IF YOU PREVIOUSLY CONTRIBUTED, the original campaign failed so we didn’t get your contribution, please contribute to the new one :)

Just grabbed it on my new Android phone. Fun! I got to level 10 as a Knight. Some observations in no particular order:

  • Tapping on tiles feels a bit finicky. Sometimes you simply move to another tile instead of attacking  :o
  • Only one play but it felt like 90% of the items were weapons/armor with poor durability. It mostly felt like trash.
  • It would help to further differentiate the items from the floor tiles; it can be hard to see.
  • Some white thing I activated by the character said huh or something. Nothing appeared to have happened.
  • Game hitches on post-level screen to pick one of two upgrades sometimes. Might be nice to say what the upgrade choices actually are.
  • I found a weapon repair item, but I wasn't sure if there was an armor repair items. This made me try to save the better armor at low percentage. Good/bad?
  • Fuck ghosts.

Anyway good stuff - looking forward to seeing where this goes.

New version available, play online or get it for Android!

In other news

* We have a wiki setup now, if you want to collaborate please create content for it!
* We are getting close to 30.000 installs for the standard edition; rating has gone up to 3.55 and I hope it continues going up with more polished versions. I also removed support for Android versions prior to 4.0 since they seemed to be causing problems to users (since CocoonJS doesn’t support WebView+ on these)
* We now have 100+ buyers for the Fellowship edition, thank you all!
* As expected, the APK for the fellowship edition is now available (for free) in several non official (i.e. pirate) websites. If you use one of these versions, the Curse of Ananias will fall over you and your family.

Gameplay
* Add Guardian of the Ring
* Add range and accuracy penalties for heavy items / weak classes

Social
* Share game over event on facebook (v1)
* Add Jack Bonar as Knight of Darkness

Graphics
* Add missing wall variations for caverns.

UX
* Relayout statues collection with bigger buttons
* Allow examining dungeon features
* Add custom cursor for web version

Fixes
* Fix issue with teleporting
