Advanced Cave Crawlerby josefnpat - 48 Hour Compo Entry
Escape the maze and get to the surface... if you can survive.
You find yourself deep under the ground in what seems to be a maze. Get loot! Kill monsters! Navigate the maze!
Although this game was done solo, I did it at RedBottle Design with the Rochester Indies Anonymous (http://rocia.org) !
While this game appears to be in 3D, it is actually totally faked one-point perspective (which is why you only see up to 9 blocks at a time). LOVE is not a 3D framework, but I really wanted to add something that looked 3D! All of the stats in the lower right can be changed by random events that happen throughout the game.
I will point out that for the compo release: score function doesn't work well (you usually finish the game with 0 points) and it's hard to get gold. I will release a post-compo version at some point fixing these specific issues, but please understand the vision was for the score and gold system to work.
Use keyboard arrows & spacebar (or plug in a controller!)
If you attack a monster and you don't have enough defense, it will kill you!
Score is based on gold/time! So hurry up!
There are two types of encounters: good and bad.
* Easy: Good 75% Bad 25%
* Medium: Good 50% Bad 50%
* Hard: Good 25% Bad 75%
* LOVE 0.9.1
* iNudge w/ arecord

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.
