Tower of Azari Version 0.23 Released!

22 10 2009

The new version has loads of changes, although not as many as I would have liked…

Internal Changes

  • Fixed a naming problem with door states (open/closed), had them backwards somewhere…
  • Added an enum for the tiles. Still need to make it global somehow…
  • Removed test function.
  • Removed the “turns” and “time” variables in place of the new ones in the _game structure.
  • Changed hunger and energy scales from 0-100 to 0-1,000.

Visual Changes

  • Added the “Press enter to continue” prompt to the stat adjusting part of character creation.
  • Fixed a small puctuation error in one of the action log messages.
  • Redesigned the starting map to look more like the bottom floor of a building.
  • Status screen updated to display the player’s current position, total steps taken and time passed.

Gameplay Changes

  • Map generator is in!
  • Traditional experience levels have been replaced with an EXP point-buy system. More on this later.
  • Enemies will chase you, if they can see you.
  • Killing enemies now nets you EXP. (Their max HP+the average of their five primary stats)
  • Stairs going up now work, I’m considering saving floors for revisiting in the future, but for the time being, you can only go up.
  • Every five floors you are given the option to rest and spend experience points for stat increases. In the future, you will also be able to buy/sell items as well.
  • Hunger and energy now slowly decrease over time. There is no effect when they hit d0 yet, but they do decrease.
