Escape from the Dungeons of Dread

by Momeka_ - 48 Hour Competition Entry

So I made a one button roguelike. You play as a brave warrior trapped in the dreadful dungeons of dread and have to escape.

Made in XNA 4.0.

Godd job, great game! The one key system was kind weird and annoying. If it was not for that i would play it for hours. I also wish there was some music.

I agree, single-key control made it feel rather slow-paced. Nice entry anyways :)

Couldn't really see the inspiration behind the one button gameplay, made it much more frustrating. Other than that, I loved everything about it. Very cute submission.

Very fun game, but I agree that the one-button system was an odd choice. Very good job, though!

Certainly innovative, but not sure how fun it is to wait for the right direction. It can get annoying/boring fast, because a game can have so much depth with 1 button unless it is action packed. Levels are basic and lack more variety. I'm afraid I didn't see it to the end (assuming it's not infinite).

Good game, but would have been much better without the annoying movement controls. I got to level 6.

Also, I would recommend not using installers for LD games as it makes it more difficult to run. Especially when the start menu shortcut is called 'MyGame'. :)

I can't run games that use the "HiDef" XNA profile :( Switch it to "reach" and I'll be able to play it.

Unfortunately, I don't have a video card that supports the "HiDef" profile :'(

A couple of things irritated me. I ran it from source, because I didn't want to run an MSI, and I didn't like the one button movement. However, when I hacked the code to give me 4way movement I liked it. I really don't think the 1 button movement worked. I hope we see a lot more roguelikes in the future because they are le awesome.
