Under rating threshold (show) I think the minion AI should only anticipate left and right movement, not up and down. He should only _follow_ up and down. When fighting near a ladder, the minion may climb the ladder instead of helping. When fighting on a platform, the minion may drop down instead of helping.

Under rating threshold (show) I don't think I will ever win this game, but I appreciate that. Too many games are just one path - you keep on it for half an hour and your are done. I keep dying and dying, and come back to die again.

Under rating threshold (show) If I use a rune of Null on the Amulet of Yendor, will it turn into an Amulet of Rodney?

Under rating threshold (show) Woo! It's true. Items left on the Overworld carry through reincarnation. Runes stay identified. Time to kill the Balrog again and test with the Amulet of Yendor or Death's Scythe.

Under rating threshold (show) @Oleg: Golem face doesn't give "perfect armor & HP". It just gives HIGH defense and HP. Armors with undead enchant has a chance to revive you as skeleton when you die not just Undead rune. Eating identify rune reveals the whole map and identifies any unknown runes or hidden cursed weapons in your inventory. you don't have to wear monster faces & eat identify runes to figure out the info, you can just throw it at them.

Under rating threshold (show) If I'd been told that someone made a spiritual sequel to Rogue--let alone a darker & edgier one--I would have been incredulous as how that could possibly work. However, I'm truly impressed by your work. I love the way you blended Rogue's gameplay with the action RPG mechanic (and some fresh elements), AND provided the option for the original turn-based mechanic. I'm also surprised and delighted with how well the moody, emotional story works. It seamlessly fleshes out the framing device of Rogue into a real storyline. As someone who still plays Rogue, I say well-done. This feels like an honest-to-goodness sequel to me and a very worthy successor. I'll be playing this for days. :)

Under rating threshold (show) My only complain would be the fact that you can't take items on your next run, and you can't even keep them if you drop them in the overworld after you win (at least I couldn’t). This kind of encourages the use of debug menu to recreate your items as they were. That and the few levels in chaos where you spawn and immediately 6 golems and one elite fall on your head before you can do anything, but then again, this a roguelike so it's ok. Gameplay is great, the explanation of the universe on multiple levels (even from the player's perspective) is well executed, and game designers that want to make a female protagonist -without making it seem forcibly inserted- should take notes from this game. The Balrog could have more charisma, but makes up for it as a very annoying villain. Also loved the joke about the handbag of holding. I swear my mother has at least one of those.

Under rating threshold (show) Escaping without the Amulet of Yendor gives you a different ending. Also: The Overworld doesn't preserve the Amulet, the Balrog's Face, or the Death's Scythe across reincarnations. It removes those items AND it looks like it also removes all other items on the same stack. So be careful. (Either that or I hit an item limit. But I doubt it. Will double-check next ascension.)

Under rating threshold (show) Awesome. The RNG polymorphed me into a Nymph and I stole Death's Scythe. Thanks for the tip, khfreak. Time to make another run at the Balrog!

Under rating threshold (show) This is the best side scrolling Roguelike I've ever played! If you ever go mobile, bring it to Android! Even though it has a default action RPG mode, it still keeps the Roguelike feel. This is the only side-scrolling roguelike that I can say is a roguelike, not a roguelike-like. Only reason I gave you five stars is because I can't give you 6! Thank you for wasting hours of my life! ...I swear I mean that in a good way...

Under rating threshold (show) The Chaos Rune or "?" rune that doesn't change names even when you eat an identify rune is very rare or a secret part of the game. enchanting it to a weapon causes random effects on enemies you hit/attack like quickening, confusion, bleed (poison), stun, teleport, and sometimes when you're lucky, it even causes explosions like the bomb weapon.

Under rating threshold (show) Saw this on RogueBasin today, so I logged into my account for the first time in two years to check it out. Took me a few minutes to acclimatise but it was totally worth it! Really good work on the UI, I found it pretty intuitive and quick to navigate, which is always a plus when it comes to RLs of any kind. There's nothing more off-putting to me than having to figure out yet another aniquated and convoluted NetHacky control scheme.

Under rating threshold (show) @Toast: The Cog weapon has a built in "?" enchant (chaos enchant). That thing is made up of the same thing as the RNG (Random Number God) altar you use to get random things. So yeah, hitting an enemy with that may randomly cause enemies to experience the same effect as being hit with an XP Rune (quickening, Level Up, Temp. Haste).

Under rating threshold (show) Patch 1.0.3 should be up now. Pretty sure I uploaded it a while ago but someone just mentioned an old bug below and what do you know, uploading it didn't work (pretty sure I published as well). A lot of bugs were fixed and a few tuning changes as well.

Developer response from st33d

Need to give it a little time to confirm the game is stable (very hard to track bugs when you can do odd things like enchant your bow with light or gain the ability to walk thru walls). Then if there's enough demand we'll see about some badges. Feel free to make suggestions.

Under rating threshold (show) ...I never had a chance to use the scythe. I read the wallsign "Elbereth" and my fury took form and killed the Balrog before I even saw it. I love the RNG. When I don't hate it.

Under rating threshold (show) This is an astonishingly well made game. The combat can be fast paced and fiercely tactical, and the developer gives you the choice between two combat types. The atmosphere is perfect, and when combined with the stellar soundtrack is well deserving of the horror tag. Superb presentation.

Under rating threshold (show) A portal to the Underworld lets your minion come back if it dies. Eating runes: Bleed - you take HP damage. Heal - fast HP regen. Light - you light the area for a while. Thorns - ???. Undead - if you are killed shortly after, you gain full HP and your character now looks like a skeleton.

Under rating threshold (show) Okay, I need to confirmed, please. Does enchanting a weapon with a Heal Rune, cause your target to regen HP? This seems to be the case as far as I can tell. Shouldn't that particular enchantment heal you when you attack with that weapon, instead of healing your target?
