A downloadable game for Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux
This is a roguelike I made for 7drl. I wrote this game in Clojure to learn the language.
This is my first roguelike and my first 7drl. A lot of features I wanted did not quite make it into the game as I ran out of time. The stuff that I actually got going though is pretty cool.
I managed to get random level generation and A*-pathfinding going which I'm quite pleased about.
So about the game:
The idea is this rogue character is stuck in a loop of a functional program (most probably a lisp dialect). The enemy (A) is immutable, can't be killed and just respawns.
The only way out is to kill S-expressions by taking out pairs of parens. On each level you need to look for the pair of parens before you can use the exit `% `. When you enter the next form (level) you get some health back.
Ultimately you're looking for the backquote character to escape evaluation.
