I loved those old Roguelikes, so I had to give it a go even if it's incomplete. You didn't mention in what way it's unfinished, so I have to go with my observation that there's no enemies and no win condition (i.e. the One Room you're looking for). I also couldn't tell in what way I am Nick Cage. :D

Graphics are a little harsh. Bright colours with no shading makes it feel flat and very busy. I noticed Nick Cage's idle animation makes his hands and lower half bounce up and down while his torso remains still. He has an inner gyroscope, much like a chicken? :D

The sound effect for combat/taking damage is kinda shrill.

It's a shame there's not much to do but explore for a bit. You have the procedural cave system going (though sometimes there's corridors that are all doors), so the foundation is there. Will you continue this one?

That's a really good basis, I like the retro feeling.
If you already have the procedural generation working, now you can expand with combat and exploration mechanics, that'd make a great game.
On the side: the sound for opening a door is a bit annoying :D

The basis for a fun game is here and I had a good laugh at the 'take that!'. I hope you continue working on this in the future. :)

This entry reminded me of old PC exploration games, but it doesn't have too much else going for it. I mostly ended up lost and confused as to where I was supposed to be going. I also expected the main character to be Nicolas Cage, but that's not exactly a problem :P
