    Torre truhán (Rogue tower)

    Game information:
    Torre truhán it's a classic roguelike, where you attempt to conquer the floors one by one, managing your options and resourses to get deeper.
    Every move consume energy, and when you have no more, then your run ends.
    The world it's procedurally generated, witch means that you can only rely on your knowledge not your memory.
    Your tools are the dialog box, your pad and inventory, and your observation.

    Needs more test, I found a bunch of bugs together with the autosave.
    Sooo no version 8 uploaded.
    Maybe version 9 will fix these things.

    5 - Fairy behaviour change.
    6 - "Far exit" now uses flood lagorithm to make the exit as deep as posible, instead of cartesian distance.

    Hey, great work so far! I played the game and got to floor 24 and the game congratulated me :D Does the creepy monster do anything besides laughing? or did I just miss that... Only problem that I personally had was that the game window was very small; but I have a 4k monitor, had to really squint my eyes haha. Other than that keep up the good work!

    It's ment to be played on the phone :p
    But i'll make the full screen option with f4

    And the creepy monster (fairy) will change,
    but for now,
    - Increases your perseption
    - Reduce your max energy in 50
    - And heals you to your new max

    I want to make the game feel misterious
    And, be so full of content that the real mastery it's not speed but knowledge
    That's why it's turn based, and every movement takes energy :p
    You have to think what you do, and even being random, knowledge makes you reach deeper into the rooms :D

    Edit: Also, Thanks! I hope you did enjoy it :D

    Yeah, of course, I would like you to help me write this properly.
    Grammarly does what he can, but I manage to keep writing badly.
    And I really appreciate the review, now I'm thrilled to keep coding, Thank you a lot.

    And to answer some of your questions:
    - I didn't upload it because yesterday was D&D night...
    - The void, weird thing, was an early attempt of fog, and I re-use the sprite, so on version 10 (final), they will be gone.
    - That face's the character I always use on prototypes, It will eventually go, I guess in version 11 (I am so used to see it that I forget it's a small weird thing)
    - About the fake walls, I'll make the difference in version 11 (they spawn near end corridors most of the times)
    - If it sounds like bad advertising, it's completely intentional.
    - And more updates are coming soon, more scrolls, more fairies, some traps, some bug fix, some performance issues (added and removed), all that and more on version 10 final now on my pc, later, on drive... XD

    I think this could be a cool concept if polished, something like a rogue like mixed with text game... maybe if there was enough audio it could be adapted for blind people to play as well.

    It could be adapted...
    But I am not a professional studio, I have not enough resources to do that.

    And the polish process I follow it's

    First core (movement, rules, algorithms etc).
    Second content and experience.
    Third interface and extra.

    So even when you might find it ugly for now, what you can't see playing it's really what takes all my time.

    Sorry sorry, I really misunderstand you :oops:
    But I am taking care of visual things slowly :p
    Right now what I want to make it's enough content to make the rooms feel interesting enough to keep playing :D

    2 - Keys (to open the dors) (they are on the floor and a little blink animation sprite shows every 2 seconds)
    3 - Character update, a knight... or at least it's what I try to make XD
    4 - Inventory update
    4.1- To drag from hand to other places, click to select, and click to put in new location
    4.2- Discard section (throw your unwanted scrolls in there)
    4.3- Keyholes, they appear when you are near a door, move the key to them so they open
    5 - Rooms with poison gas (takes one extra energy to run by)
    6 - Change on heal scroll, (it restores 100 instead of full health)

    Change to beta:
    - Name change.
    - Slightly prettier menu.
    - Bug count back to 0

    I'll reduce the frequency of the updates to deliver a better version.
