Crawl Alone

by Yezu - Competition Entry

This is a 3d dungeon crawler. Written in Java.

You are an adventurer who got lost in far away dungeon. You're goal is to get out alive.

There are three types of environments, 22 levels, 4 types of monsters. I even managed to record a tune for this game :D

I hope You like it :)


So it would seem that the game failed to run on certain systems. The solution is to install OpenAL.

For Linux:
Use Your package manager. Search for "openal" :)

For Windows:

For Mac OS X:


A simple Manual is in the package. However I didn't manage to deliver all instructions/explanations. So here goes:

- Tha game uses a point'n'click interface.
- There are 3 NPCs in the game which will give You important items. The first one is at the first map.
- NPC 1 gives You a sword.
- NPC 2 gives You the ring of invisibility.
- NPC 3 gives You the ring of regeneration.
- Each map has from 1 to 3 exits.
- The name on the current map can be seen in the top left corner of the screen when You enter it. MAP_NPC_x means that this map contains an NPC.
- To take a screenshot press F12.
- To show the console (for some reason :P) press ~.

I've added to downloads an image with the level map for easier navigation.

if you're reading this right now, please update they entry description (the one on this page, on top) so that we know which buttons to use :)! it took me a while to figure out what to do, thinking it was broken. all i could do in the beginning was AWSD for the camera, until, more coincidentally, i clicked on the screen

The controls seemed a bit unresponsive and the utter lack of any HUD or in-gamge description made it hard to figure out exactly what to do, but given the few hours you actually had to pull this off, it's *very* impressive :)

It looks very pretty, but the game throws an exception error on my Windows 7 so I can't seem to get it to run.

Can't seem to get it to run on Win7 either.

Hmmm... I don't have access to Win7 right now. I will see if I can fix it on Monday.

Doesn't work for me either, Win7.

Came back to try again, installed the OA thing, and both the 64 and non-64 versions opened a console window for half a second then nothing happened. Ah well!
