Version 1.6.5 is Live!

5 август

Hi everyone,

This update brings many changes and additions, so the version number has jumped straight to 1.6.5.

Changelog:

  • Day/night cycle, rain and dust/spores. Adds to the game's atsmosphere dramatically, making each environment feel slighlty different depending on the time of day.
    An option has been added to the options menu to toggle these on/off.
  • Champion mode updated. Evil champions can now also spawn directly in the room to fight you.
    Champion mode has been re-balanced. I underestimated the amount of players that would choose to be good, making the mode too easy. It's now much more challenging.
  • If the player's shield is hit, the player will now be knocked back enough to avoid further attacks.
  • Chests now drop a heart or token if you don't win anything from spinning the reels.
  • Many sprites have been updated.
  • Lots of tweaks made to enemies.
  • Lots of tweaks made to game balance (frequency of hearts etc).
  • Gold key acquired splash no longer shows every time you restart.



    As always, I hope you enjoy the update, and thanks for playing!

Version 1.6 is Live!

27 юли

Hi everyone!

This is a fairly substantial update. I hope you like the new additions.

Changelog:

  • New feature: Shields. There are two shields that the player can pick up and use: a standard shield and a fear shield. Shields can only take a certain amount of damage before they break, as indicated by a HUD meter. Shields are obtained by defeating shield wielding enemies. Defeat the enemy without destroying its shield, and the shield will drop. Collecting a shield whilst you already have one equipped will replenish the shield's health.
  • New enemy: Witch Doctor. Wields a fear shield
  • New enemy: Goblin. Hops around on a pogo stick, dropping mines that detonate damaging anything within their explosion radius.
  • Some changes have been made to the way Chests work. A small amount of situational bias has been added to the way items that are chosen, whilst still retaining as much randomness as possible. So you will be more likely to receive an ability as opposed to treasure, if you currently have no abilities etc.
  • Chest 0 spins message changed from "Empty" to "Failed".
  • Destroying a chest, or stopping on 0 spins will drop either a heart or a token. This means you always receive something from a chest.
  • 4 new colours have been added to the customisation list (Black, Camo 1, Camo 2 & Camo 3).
  • Alt-Tab player visibility bug fixed.
  • Hit Wisps (the things that leave trails of gold) with an attack for 50% chance to receive a token.
  • Some balance changes have been made to shield wielding enemies.

    Tip for shield usage:
    The direction that the shield is facing will be the direction that the shield will block attacks from. Aiming the hand cannon or carrying a key will place the shield on the character's back, blocking attacks from behind. Attacking with the sword will leave you open to attacks from the front, but will block attacks from the side the shield is facing.

    Thank you to everyone that has posted feedback and suggestions. Any changes/additions that didn't make it into this release will be included in the next.

Относно играта

Combining its own unique take on the real-time roguelike genre, with a nostalgic 16-bit look and feel, Diehard Dungeon is a game that feels both familiar and quite different at the same time.

Followed by a trusty, treasure collecting companion chest, you must make your way through the dungeons many randomly-generated rooms and levels. Armed with a sword and a ‘hand cannon’, all manner of nasty dungeon dwellers, bosses and traps will need to be defeated or traversed in order to emerge from the dungeon victorious!

To aid you in your quest, you may be lucky enough to encounter one or more upgrades, or new abilities scattered throughout the dungeon, or bump into the remnants of other players (Champions) via the unlockable 'Champion Mode'. Champions wander atop the dungeon walls, ready to unleash their souls upon passers by. Be careful though, as not all Champions are helpful.

A randomly generated dungeon is created every playthrough, with many secrets and multiple outcomes.

The game features a dynamic difficulty and ranking system - the better you do, the more challenging the game will become. Only the most skilled dungeon escapees will attain the highest ranks.

Do you have what it takes to survive the dungeon?

Minigames

  • Mayhem: You have 3 minutes to get a high score by any means necessary. Mayhem is easy to learn, but difficult to master.
  • Survival: An endless series of progressively harder dungeon rooms. Avoid receiving damage and clear rooms within the time limit for bonuses.
  • Fading Light: Coming soon!

    Each minigame has a global leaderboard.

A decent addition to the "fake roguelike" genre (a nice name for it might be rogue-like-like.) I would recommend it as it has most of the elements that fans of the genre like including permadeath, random upgrades, random dungeons, and a retro feel. The only problem that keeps me from loving this game is that it feels very slow, but only on the players end. The dungeons side on the other hand will seem very fast and can kill you in just seconds with the crazy amount of enemies on the screen (which is no problem at all of course.) The issue is that killing the enemies seems so slow sometimes with your cannon gun and tiny little dagger. Yes, you can upgrade both of those, but sometimes you wont get upgrades through out the dungeon if you are unlucky and it will just make things slower. One may argue "that's what rogue-likes are all about. They are going to be tough." This isn't really that kind of game. In this sort of game you want quick difficult gameplay where the upgrades make you feel like you are progressing even if the game is getting more tough. A few floors in and i'm doing the same damage. The only buffs I have make me immune to fire or that the chests wont be empty (yet you can still get unlucky and recieve nothing.) The game is fun. Just seems slow. I think it's safe to say that if you know what you are playing 5 dollars is a good price.


LET IT BE KNOWN THAT THE UPDATE THAT MAKES YOUR SWORD SLASH WAS A GREAT IMPROVMENT. IT IS A LOT MORE PLAYABLE FOR NOW. THE GAMEPLAY FEELNIG A BIT SLOW AS SAID IN THIS REVIEW STILL APPLIES A LITTLE BIT, BUT IT IS NOW ON THE RIGHT TRACK. CAPS LOCK YES.

+ Cool concept
+ Tough but fair
+ Retro graphics
+ Procedurally generated dungeons = replayability

- Random crap on traps make them practically invisible
- There's also a bit of luck involved

What is a... DieHard Dungeon?

It's like a Zelda game. You collect stuff (gold, power ups , keys...) and kill the opponents. Pretty similar isn't it? Well yes but the difference is that It's a Rogue-Like game (perma-death and tough difficulty).


#Gameplay#
Game feels like Zelda, no doubts. You collect stuff and go deeper in the dungeon. The dungeons rooms are randomly generated, each run might be different.
Your companion is a Chest. Chest will help you in game ONLY if you feed it with gold.

There are secrets rooms in this game!

#Music#
Music isn't best side of this game. It's not the best but It's not the worst. It's in between.

#Difficulty#
Game difficulty on start is easy but later after several level-ups, game becomes tougher and tougher.
Each level up increases amount of opponents and reduces chance to obtain a perk.

To increase difficulty, you can always turn the Champion Mode ON.

#Cons#
Well I don't really see many cons in this game, except the fact that you can't rebind keys... YET.
Developer said that he is working on it. When It will be implemented? I don't know.


Developer is updating this game very frequently, so be sure that he will fix bugs and implements some ideas (Check discussion for more info).


Price of this game is very cheap. So why not give a try?
