This is pretty sweet.
You've definitely nailed the fast paced action.
Lots of cool effects and great attention to details.

You should just start adding more and more enemies and weapons.

Do you pick out what spells you want from the beginning, or can you switch them out when you're in the dungeon?

Thanks! You will get one item after each boss or possibly find them in a treasure room (Binding of Isaac style)

Loving the look of this. As someone who has poured hundreds of hours into Isacc, I could see myself losing a lot of time to this.

Also, your colour choices are wonderful Smiley Hand Thumbs Up Right

Quick progress report
Been watching some Risk of Rain videos which kinda pushed me over the edge to add more passive items.
Before, the thinking was that all items should have a On Use thing, but upon further inspection, I don't think people will remember to use more than three or four anyway. And quite importantly, the amount of work that would be needed making large numbers of these items could be overwhelming. It could also be a nice tactical decision wether or not to drop the current items for something else.
LMB item, RMB item and one more?

To facilitate this I added a bunch of events that could trigger a proc in these items:
* CritProc
* CritHit
* ProjectileHit
* MoveTile
* Shoot
* BigUse
* Tick
* GoBelow25PHealth
* GoFullHealth
* EnemyHurt
* EnemyDeath
* EnterRoom
* EnterFloor

I also added and wired up a couple of variables that items could modify when picked up:
* CritChance
* CritMultiplier
* DamageMultiplier
* Luck
* MovementSpeedMultiplier
* AttackSpeedMultiplier
* CooldownSpeedMultiplier
* HealthPickupMultiplier
* Accuracy
* KnockbackMultiplier
* ProjectileSpeedMultiplier
* TickSpeedMultiplier

Next up would be to create a bunch of items that use these.
I think I should also make these items appear more than once per floor.
Maybe three item pools:
* Drop from enemies
* Drop from boss
* Found in chests

I have also created a health bar instead of the hearts as well as multiplied all health and damage by 10.
This gives me more granularity for for example a Health on Enemy Kill item.
Where previously one heart per kill might have been too much, 1 point of health out of 300 is more reasonable.

I think I wanna make the rooms slightly bigger.
This would give more space for larger numbers of enemies and tactics like kiting.
I also want to change the ratio slightly to make room for the HUD/Inventory etc.
For now, I just cheated and fixed screen ratio to 16:10 instead of 16:9 which makes some space for that.
When I get more time I'll redo all the current rooms to be a bit bigger.

I also needed to get the HUD away from the walls as I sometimes have important stuff on them.


Really boring screenshot showing Health Bar and some Wall-Mounted-Lightning-Dispensers.

Another thought I have been entertaining is if I should have different character classes with a base set of starting skills/items or if things should be this random.

What do you think peeps?

I really like the effects you are putting into the game, make it a nice pixelart feel with some technology mixed in Wink if that makes sense.

I'm gonna keep an eye on this one  Blink

Progress report *beep* *beep*


Another very large animated gif - complete with a bad tooltip and all...

So I actually got to implement a couple of those triggered passive items that I was talking about.
In the gif you can see a few of them. Need to figure out some fun names and icons for them. Just ugly generic orbs for now.

Currently I have these: (Fun names pending... )
* Crit Combo: Increases crit chance on enemy hit. Zeroes it when a projectile hits a wall.
* Fire trail: Ingnites the floor below the wizard. Burns enemies.
* Health on Crit: Heals the wizard slightly when hitting with a crit-projectile
* Homing Missiles: A small chance to spawn four homing missiles when shooting. Max once per 2 secs.
* Invulnerable on Crit: Yep you guessed it
* Invulnerable on Enter room: Gives 2 secs of invulnerability on entering a room not before visited.

The gif also features the new larger rooms.
I actually ripped out all of the old rooms and made new ones.
My spontaneous feeling is that big open rooms are more fun than those scattered with blocks.
Need to figure those things out.

Thanks for all the kind words peeps.
Feedback is very inspiring so far, keep it coming! Smiley
