About This Game

THE BILLIARDS ROGUELIKE

A pure-fun roguelike dungeon crawler where you're a billiard ball making your way through randomly generated levels full of monster balls, traps, collectible power-ups and more!

DRAFT YOUR BUILD

Between levels, draft from a wide variety of 100+ items with game-changing effects (all of which are stackable) to find combos, build synergies and refine your playstyle!

ASCEND THE LADDER

Battle through 20 levels of difficulty, each one adding more challenging modifiers!

VALUE YOUR TIME

While you unlock additional items by playing for even greater variety, there's NO meta treadmill "+1% power" grind!

PLAY YOUR WAY

Play a full 10-level dungeon crawl in 20-30 minutes, or choose the condensed Delve Mode with half the levels but extra loot, or tackle a single-level raid with random items.

TRACK YOUR PROGRESS

Wins are not just tracked per difficulty and mode, but you also receive difficulty-specific badges for each item you win a run with. Fill your item compendium and collect them all!
