($SRCROOT)\dungeonby kirbytails7 - 48 Hour Compo Entry
*** NOTE: You need to destroy corrupted files (the red blocks) and defeat enemies to get more attacks. The files in the first room always give you more attacks, so you should destroy them first. ***
*** (Also, it's "source root slash dungeon")
Bugs have entered the mainframe! Deploy the virus termination script! (That's you.)
It's an action-roguelike with randomly-generated dungeons. The dungeon generator ate up more time that I expected, so most everything else suffered. There's no music and there are lots of collision bugs, but hopefully you will still enjoy! Controls are on the game's page.
You only get one life! You only get one attack to start with! You only get 1KB of attacks! Admittedly, the theme was not a priority for this one...
Uses a custom engine made with the Video Game Development Club at the University of Minnesota a couple of years ago, and sfxr for sound effects and Paint.NET for sprites.
Please let me know if you find any bugs.
- Collision is weird when changing rooms. If you get stuck, move around a bit. Also, don't go out of bounds.

TEAMS: Teams entering the Jam should pick a single representative to submit your game, or create a team specific account you can share. We currently do not support Team Voting, but sharing an account and together playing and rating games is acceptable.
NOT LOGGED IN?: If you get a message about not being logged in, even though you are, it’s because your web browser cached the non-logged in page. You can fix this by either refreshing your cache or clearing your cache. CTRL+F5 in many browsers. Chrome is a bit more work. Press F12 to enable Developer Mode, then you can right click on the refresh button and select “Empty Cache and Hard Reload”. This option is unavailable if you are not in Developer Mode.
PORTS: Ports to other platforms can be done after the deadline. That said, the sooner you finish your port, the sooner people can play your game, improving your chances of placing in the final results. For best results, provide a Web version of your game, or a Windows version with no dependencies. Also be sure to rate about 20 games to improve your visibility.
MY GAME DOESN’T SHOW UP: If you can’t find your game, it’s usually because the URL to your downloads are missing ‘http://‘. Fix your URLs (http://mysite.com/mygame.zip) and you will show up.
MY GAME CRASHES, IS UNBEATABLE, OR I MADE A TYPO: We allow you to fix crash or win condition bugs after the deadline (in a sense, like “porting” to support more players). We also allow “typo” bugs. I.e. A true that should have been a false, a word that should have been a different word, very tiny changes that you would have caught if you had more sleep. We leave this open to interpretation, but generally speaking your game should be identical to the game you submitted. No new features, just things you messed up last minute. Typos.
