This is a small roguelike inspired by the Shin Megami Tensei games
How To Play
- Left Arrow and Right Arrow to turn
- Down Arrow to turn 180 degrees
- Up Arrow to move forward
- X to open/close the map and to select moves when in combat
- Z to run when in combat (random chance to successfully run)
You will encounter enemies while you explore the dungeon. Each enemy will have a weakness. Enemies also have a random change to hit or miss you at each turn. The likelihood of encountering an enemy is indicated by the compass. When the compass has a red ring, you will encounter an enemy soon.
You will find a ladder on each level. This level will take you to the next floor. Each floor will increase the enemies difficulty.
You can press X to open the map. Use this to find items and the ladder.
The player is indicated in the map by a yellow point with an arrow in the direction you are facing.
Throughout the dungeon you will find various items. Health items will increase your max health and current health.
MP items will raise your max MP and your current MP. MP is used to cast spells.
Power items will increase the amount of damage you deal to an enemy.
Random items will give you either a random stat buff or a debuff.
Is there any way to regain health, or is it just a "try not to die as long as you can sort of game." Does "inspired by the Shin Megami Tensei" mean that there's different attacks that are ludicrously more effective than others depending on the monster?
I feel like this isn't conveying very well what we need to do to succeed. I feel like I'd enjoy playing it a lot more if I understood the tricks a bit more up front.
@PUNKWEIGHTINTRO Sure. But from what I've seen the health pickups increase your total health, but don't restore health lost and on your way to them you're going to lose more heath than you gain in fights. So far the futhers I've managed to make it is level 4, and only by going straight for the exits and skipping the powerups a few times.
I still think a clearer guide would be much helpful.
