About This Game

Famaze is a retro themed puzzle adventure game. The game combines charming SNES era visuals and sound, randomized "roguelike"mazes, strategy and puzzles, rpg elements, and a fun lighthearted story. The game is simple to pick up but offers endless replay because of the procedural nature of its levels.

The story of the game involves a mad king who has captured the happy rutabagas of the land and has turned them into evil monsters to guard his kingdom while he searches for the elusive perfect recipe for rutabaga pudding. The heroes of the land (a knight, thief, or wizard) must delve deep into the king's domain to rescue the rutabagas, find the gem of truth to unravel the secret recipe and put a stop to the mad king's plot.

FAMAZE is the simplest rogue-like i know. Originally made for phones and the browser FAMAZE was a really fun little rogue-like that was perfect if you only had 5 minutes or so. The goal of FAMAZE is to find a key and to get to the end of the dungeon. In most rogue-likes, when you move, the monsters move too but in FAMAZE most monsters are stationary. They just block your way. Attacking monsters causes you and your foe to lose 1hitpoint. In order to stay alive you need potions that refill your life. The catch however is that you only have 2 inventory slots. This mechanic leads to alot of strategic thinking. FAMAZE also has a rather interesting lightning mechanic. If the light touches an enemy it turns into an healing item. This is an easy way of defeating your foes. So FAMAZE is a fun little rogue-like that is perfect to play while downloading a huge game or so ;D. If you want a strategic rogue-like that is really complex look somewhere else(ToME is perfect if you're looking for that;D) Simple but fun!

Very simple, easy and short game, you finish it under 1 hour and there is no single reason to play it more. The overall idea could have way more interesting implementation.

A rather good short little game that you can finish in under an hour.

BUT, when it comes to the hard difficulty? My ♥♥♥♥ing god, it IS hard.

It's free, it's short, might get boring after a while but, if you wanna play a game to kill your time for a bit, try this one.

It's exactly what you assume it is! A small little treat for some sixty minutes. Too bad the super hard difficulty level only unlocks after that one…

Games too long for you?
Ever loved RPG games, but don't have the time to remember plot devices?
Or perhaps you just don't have the time to dedicate yourself to one game anymore because you're no longer that young adolescent tween that had all the time in the world, where you could just go to class one day and say "Yeah! ♥♥♥♥ this class! Imma play me some games!"...???

Then come on down to Famaze! Where you don't need to remember anything, mash arrow keys and the occasional "1", "2" and space, and finish the game before you have to go back to whatever the hell it is you were doing 30 minutes ago.

I like it!
this is a very short game (has like 8 levels). you need to grab a key and escape a maze
But the maze is full of enemies(spiders, trolls and werid jelly bubules lol) traps and other suprises.
you need to act wisely and save resouces like light and helth points and find some treasures and coins.
there are 3 diffrent heros- each one has diffrent skills
in conclusion its a small fun game:P give it a shot :)

Famaze is a pretty neat indie game, I dont know how to describe it really apart from what you can learn on the store page. I was able to complete the game on normal and collect most of the artifacts in around 45 minutes, so the game is pretty short, after you beat normal mode however you unlock a harder difficulty, so the game could last you quite a few hours. The game feels alot like a rougelike game so you probably wont get tired of the game a second time around if it held your attention long enough to complete it once. Famaze is free on Steam now, so I hope if it looks interesting to you you will take the time to try it, its simple and small, and if you like retro games you're sure to think its pretty neat.

The repetitive nature is something you'd expect from a rogue-like game but this one handles it very simply with a level system and dungeon-crawler items like flare, fireball, healing potion, and more. Fun, Cute, and most of all , well done. 8/10

First attempt: Played as knight. Lasted around 1 minute. Figured out how to used special ability Smite when I was down to 2 HP. Never even found the key.
Second attempt: Played as thief. Disarmed all the traps, open all the chests, snatch all the coins, light all the beacons, stab all the ghosts, run from all the bulky skeleton wizard looking things, accidentally wake all the winged-eyeball ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥s, murderize and rip out the throats of the 1 HP fodder creeps, hug all the slimes, find most of the secret rooms, and finish the game.
BUT GET THE WRONG RECIPE!
but unlock the expert mode
BUT...WRONG...RECIPE...HMMMNNNGGGEEEEAAAARRRRHH!!
Third attempt: Thief, pape and rillage, THERE ARE SECRET SUB-ROOMS?! WHAT DOES THIS ARTIFACT DO?! closed out of game in The Treasury when I teleported into a walled off area to get a potion...
...
...God I love this game...
No love for the wizard. I wanna be the next Lupin IIIrd guys. With permadeath and magic light that turns gobbledygooks into kawaii rutabagas

Silly Rogue like random Dungeon Dive ...

In the dark you will confront your inner fears (Monsters), but in the Light they transform into simple vegetables. Explore dungeons trying to avoid traps/monsters and collect as many food items & loot as possible.

Twenty years ago I would have enjoyed this game, especially with the retro interface.

2/5 Stars (as a Childrens game).
