Default DynGen Hunter - roguelike maybe?

Has anyone checked this out?

https://itunes.apple.com/gb/app/dyngen-hunter/id690014099?mt=8

Looks kind of interesting, but not sure what to make of it yet. I can't find any coverage of it, a website, Youtube footage, anything! :S

Hi Evanac

I think you should give it a go, but I would say that as I am the developer.

I have put the game out for review everywhere I can find - but there must be a backlog as its taking a while

Would you like to see a YouTube Lets play?
What else would convince you?

AH

Looks good. Haven't any credit on itunes right now. So some impressions would be great

Regards

I think I just need to know more about it. It's not the money that puts me off - I just don't quite understand what the game is.

Is it a traditional roguelike? Or does it just have RL elements. More data would be great and a video or trailer even better!

I am a huge RL fan and AppStore gamer in general - I've bought around 300 games so far!

Thanks for getting back to me.

It is a rogue like - but with a few twists.

The map is random, but persistent. All players will play on the same map, but as new parts of the map are discovered, they will be generated randomly and then saved for all players.

This is where the discovery element comes in. There are various features, such as lakes and graveyards which save the name of the person who discovered them. So if you discover a new graveyard, everytime someone else goes to that graveyard, they will see that "evanac was the first person to discover this graveyard!". This is to encourage exploration.

The quests, weapons, loot and enemies are all entirely random and there is a (currently crude) leaderboard to add a bit of competition between players.

If you have any more questions, just ask!

Sounds kinda nice. So it's random until discovered, at which point it'll be the same for all players... nice idea.

Regarding the game systems, does it play like a roguelike in terms of combat? Walk into enemy to attack (hidden dice roll).


Some other questions:
Do you have limited view of the world (line of sight)?
Do you get hungry?
Do you have a weight limit for equipment?
is there a 'back to town' feature to restore your HP/buy weapons etc?

Thanks for taking the time to answer. I'm working on a roguelike action game right now, so it's all very interesting to me. ;D

Some more questions: why total lack of sound? How to replenish health. Dont think i will play this any longer since seems all the quests are "find place x" and theres no map and everything looks the same. Also my first play on ipad 3 ended game crashing on me.

Yes that's right.

Some other questions:

There's no line of sight, but you only get to see a small part of the world at a time.

Do you get hungry?

Not at the moment!

Do you have a weight limit for equipment?

There is but it's high, so you probably won't hit it


is there a 'back to town' feature to restore your HP/buy weapons etc?

No, but there are lots of shopkeepers around, to sell your stuff and buy health potions


Sorry for formatting, on my phone

There is sound but not music. When you loot or fight there are sounds.
You can replenish health by levelling up or by using health potions.

When you say the game crashed? What happened? Did it just freeze? What were you doing at the time?

Thanks for the feedback
