Happy new year Tigsourcers! It was a quiet December for Dungeoneering development, unfortunately, but the new year holds much promise.

Update: v0.6.1 Jan 2nd

Changes since the last version
- solved an annoying bug with ? tiles with entrances leading to them from multiple directions, previously only the first seen entrance would qualify
- hero & monsters now have stats: HEALTH, STRENGTH, SPEED, ARMOUR. When battles happen you take turns attacking each other, with the higher SPEED person starting off. STRENGTH - ARMOUR is how much damage you do per swing.

Next up
- a little battle screen to show monster stats (currently not shown anywhere) & why you are dying..
- equippable items to improve your hero's stats

Play this version:
Browser (Flash)
Installable (PC/Mac/Linux via AIR)

I just played your latest version, here's my (brief) feedback:

I love:
  • the concept
  • the paper art style
  • use of cards
  • the flavour text on the rooms and corridors made me smile

I don't love:
  • if there's a lot of depth to the gameplay I'm not seeing it yet

Thanks for trying it out GeoffW. Agree with you on lack of gameplay right now. Hopefully in a few weeks I'll have the major gameplay mechanics in and it will be more fun.

Update: v0.6.2 Jan 7th

Changes since the last version
- a BATTLE SCREEN. When your hero fights a monster it will pop up with stats and show your attacks in turn until one of you dies.
- new card art! HOPE, SEEK and DREAD cards have their own hand-drawn look

Next up
- monster/treasure art for the cards and for when you place them on the map (similar to the hero token). This will mean the alpha is 100% original artwork Tears of Joy

Update: v0.6.3 Jan 12th

Changes since the last version
- new art for monsters & treasure. This means there is no longer ANY non-original art in the game! That said, there is still quite a bit of place holder stuff like buttons I made that will eventually be replaced with nicer stuff..

Next up
- equippable weapons & armour, I think

I just played the new version, I love the art style and the concept has a lot of potential.

I just feel like the overall speed of the game is a tad too slow. It's definitely fun but I feel like things should progress quicker.

For instance the adventurer in the dungeon moves at a snails pace, and he slows down a lot before coming to a stop.

Suggestions:

  • Speed up and smooth out the adventurers movement
  • Adding some type of animation or movement to the combat cards

    would be cool.
  • Also speeding up the battle cards a bit would be nice as well.

I also had some trouble clicking and dragging around with the mouse on the map but that could have been flash just acting up.

But yeah keep up the good work this is really turning into something cool, good luck with it!

The game is freezing for me. Happened 3 times out of 3 sessions. Not sure about the exact steps to reproduce it though, as I don't think the way I used my cards followed a specific pattern.

As far as feedback goes, I agree with Rotondo: the game doesn't feel responsive or snappy enough as of right now.

Oh and, having your adventurer mindlessly wandering around the dungeon (often returning on an already explored tile, while you're placing tons of card in the opposite direction) is so, so frustrating.

I hope the one mechanic you were talking about is going to have something to do with luring the character to a desired location (maybe the adventurer will try to run away from monsters, especially ones much stronger than she currently is, but you can lure her to a desired location via treasures/equip or something?).

Those (especially the latter) are the only gripes I have towards the game in its current form. Other than that I like the game very much, keep up the good work!

Thanks for the detailed feedback. Added those things to my TODO list.

I think there's a bug with the drag to scroll mechanism, I've noticed that too but haven't yet identified exactly what's causing it.

An easy first fix for the wandering back n forth issue will be to have him prioritise unvisited tiles over previously-visited ones. But longterm I want to give him a proper AI - it's going to be a big part of the game.

I saw a couple of freezes I couldn't explain in this version, but then couldn't get them to happen again. I guess there's a freezing bug in there somewhere - will have to reproduce exactly what's causing it..

Update: v0.6.4 Jan 14th

Changes since the last version
- room/corridor tiles now keep track of whether they have been visited yet. Unvisited ones have a slightly faded out look (a bit subtle in the screenshot but you'll notice it ingame). Your dungeoneer now always goes for an unvisited tile next to him if there is one available! This vastly reduces the amount of silly back and forth moving he used to do!
- fixed the bug with dragging to scroll the map not working (it was counting the hidden battle popups as buttons ...  Embarrassed )
- fixed the crashing bug that happened when cards were dealt (it was trying to endlessly generate a monster with dread 5.. of which there weren't any..  Embarrassed )

Next up
- equippable weapons & armour, I think

That's definitely a step in the right direction  Toast Left

Can't wait to see what you're planning to do with the items system and what the interaction between equipment and the threats in the dungeon are. Until then, it's very hard to judge what the generic turn-to-turn gameplay could be.

Trying out alternative fonts. My favorite is the top one here for maximum readability. What do you think? Full size version is here
