2017 Halloween update

Starting from version 1.685, you can encounter a new enemy at certain dates around the Halloween - a skeleton from ConE1!

Also, I've finally finished integrating chinese translation, though I think I will use better font in another update.

More little updates under the hood:
  • 20 new enemy formations (patterns) and 20 new room tile formations (terrains) added to the level generation system.
  • Instead of loading a game without any language if you pressed Esc at language selection (or if the language file is missing), English language is loaded from internal backup.
  • Now enemies also move crates. Previously only the heroes could.
  • Message show time increased so that you can read long texts easily.

Bugs fixed:
  • Character selection and options music doesn't stop now.
  • Music will start to play again in options if you've disabled and re-enabled it.
  • You can exit FEATS (achievements) menu with Esc keyboard key now.
  • Now you cannot accidentally destroy an equipped armor that has no durability left while shooting it in the inventory.
  • Pausing in-game with gamepad works better now.
  • Diagonal movement with gamepads was somewhat broken for some types of gamepads, fixed.
  • Thanks to Steam gamer SaltySteve for taking time to test different configurations and find out what should we do to fix the X-Box gamepad problem!

Reviews

“Together the visuals and audio completely nail the NES motif, and the concept of the game – as well as its inventory and item system – delivers on an early Zelda level that is rarely seen these days.”
Big Boss Battle

“It certainly feels like a very nostalgic game. On the inside of a cursed castle evil lurks. You, being the latest hero, try to conquer the place. Will you succeed?”

About This Game

Prepare yourself for the dangers of the cursed castle! Countless heroes have tried and failed to destroy the ancient spell that holds its walls. Meanwhile, hundreds of monsters are roaming inside, guarding the sword shards — the last known thing to be capable of defeating the demonic castle owner, thus shattering its magical structure.

Although, you are not alone — some help could be obtained from the merchants, who, for reasons not truly understood, offer their services right inside the lair of evil. Though, it seems to be only a matter of time for them to disappear...

Explore 6 x 6 x 6 = 216 rooms of randomly generated hazards and enemies while collecting the necessary artefacts. Plan your next step carefully, because save points aren't a thing in a rogue-lite game! There is, however, another option, explained below.

FEATURES


Battle System: Every character is different, try them all! Perform the Agile attack when you're in a pinch. Use armor and shields to your advantage and boost armor stats using the emblems.

PAL/NTSC modes: If the game feels too unforgiving, you can tone down the difficulty, lowering the framerate to 50 (PAL). Note, though, that music and sounds become more evil at the 83% of their original pitch.

Password System: Just like in an old NES game, in this game you need to input 13 characters to get back to your game session. Still, the powers of evil prevent you from saving anything much more than the artefacts you've found...

Unfold the mystery: Defeat minibosses to unlock more playable characters.
