Introducing Crystal Caverns, a match-3/roguelike hybrid with persistent upgrades. In the last two months, I took this game from a rough prototype to what you see in the video. At present, the game includes:
Battles appear bare-bones at the moment, but include some depth: - Players can attack, critical-strike, boost defense, poison enemies, drain, and heal. - Monster attacks affect the board in various ways (currently, they just eat random tiles).
That includes enough of the core game to improve upon.
Next month, I plan to turn my attention more towards the roguelike side of the game: generating dungeons with monsters, finding treasure (including persistent treasure), and balancing exploration with progression.
