I have taken it upon myself to review all the successful entries for the 2010 7drl competition.
There were a lot of great entries this year!
Take a look:
interesting - odd - die quickly at first until you figure out what is going on
Arima: Desdemona's Fall
Seems pretty cool - seems like there are a lot of ideas bubbling around
lots of "you cleared the map!"'s
really polished - couldn't figure it out after two deaths
RTS game involving conquering territories and expanding production
-must read help!
last of candle:
pretty simple, but you go from full health to dead quick!
the automatic ranged weapon firing in the direction you are walking is cool
Pretty fun - run around killing stuff and trying to knock monsters into other monsters
interesting & entertaining -
kind of like dig-dug
died quickly - maybe try & see how movement works better next time
zombie attack RL - seems interesting, however, having to press enter after
every single command made it unplayable :(
this is cool! Gets hard quick
RL where your sanity decreases & light is important
when you are crazy you start seeing imaginary ghosts
& demons & whatnot attacking you
took me a little while to figure out that you need to press A
to attack - I thought maybe I was some little girl who
could only throw a sword being followed around some
dungeon by her body guards. something like that...
I didn't mess with the companions very much - but we
all seemed to be able to take care of ourselves
I was never injured and I went down at least 7 levels
and I only noticed one of my companions injured by 2 hp one time
and another by another 2 hp.
if there was some more content added it seems like this could
be pretty good
This one is pretty fun! turn off the auto turn and start paralyzing
those pesky adventurers!
The screen is really small though.
this one is pretty cool - roguelike in 3d
A Quest Too Far
Seems pretty complete -
you are a retired old adventurer
going off to save your grandkids
and your arthritis keeps acting up
Run around cutting crazy lunatic's heads off!
blood flies everywhere!
This one was pretty cool - Need to try a different character type
and see how it goes being able to utilize some magic
The Legend of Kalamakkara
reacts a little bit slow, but this game was pretty fun
and had character
go down to the bottom of the town elder's magically warped basement,
splattering monsters along the way
this game was really good! well polished, and complete.
you are an arrogant adventurer desperate to pay off some
of your gambling debts
What better way than through plundering the stupid kobold's
It seems like there is only one level at the moment, but I will be
waiting for the expansion!
The map features smooth sloping passageways which loop back over/ under
themselves and are cool but can be confusing with the unremembered fov.
The Spy who Rogued Me
Seems pretty interesting - worth trying again
controls are weird - the eyeball game did a better
job with the same control scheme (except that
the eyeball game used the arrow keys and tswrm
managed to not have to use the arrow keys)
I died pretty quickly though - couldn't figure out
how to kill the dogs
sneak around and try to rogue them all night long!
seems like it could be good, but I never
managed to get thr right runes to cast any spells
so spent the entire time running away and trying to
trap monsters behind a door
run around setting traps for
big creepy monsters to stumble into
if they get near you, you're dead!
there are a few different traps for you to play
descend deep into the dungeon - it's pretty easy
once you get some damaging traps. Until you start
jump around and try to jump on top of vegetables
not really RL, but done in ascci & turn based!
also it seems like it can be unwinnable...
I tried to lure some peas over so I could jump
off of them and get across a long gap
but no luck
seems pretty deep & fleshed out
train your princess and then send her out
into the wilderness to clear dungeons and
practice proper etiquette
Watch out for monster generator monsters!
tactical combat with alchemists, archers and hand-to-hand troops
spit things at other things
don't let that food get too close!
Seems pretty cool - run around doing
wrestling moves - scooping people up
and body-slamming them!
there also seem to be a bunch of bugs
when I start scooping people
looks pretty interesting though
- some interesting combat mechanics
Muert: Racial Prison Riot (rape) Mayhem
You run around in some hard-coded prison block map
with prisoners and police spawning around you
prisoners of a different color will attack you unless
they are attacking some police
-it's hard to know what is going on - too many messages
when you die you take control of the person who killed you
you die pretty easily and there is nothing to do
besides pressing some buttons that open some doors
and running around through hallways getting attacked
Failed at reviewing:
couldn't play missing files
the dungeons of craci:
no curses no stdint.h
didn't feel like downloading all that stuff
needs MegaZeux to run
World of Roguecraft
Spell & Spear
did not like my graphics card
quest for 7
A Most Peculiar Adventure
doesn't like my video card
unable to compile - no linux
unnamed mud roguelike
does not accept connections from nonlocal hosts
bane of the living
not a valid win32 application
