Dungeons of Ekileugor: 3,221 bytes of roguelike

Sunday, September 16, 2012

Have you ever wondered how much roguelike can be crammed into the 3583 bytes available to BASIC on an unexpanded Commodore VIC-20? Well wonder no more, for Dungeons of Ekileugor is such a cramming. Random dungeon level generation with fairly reasonable layout of rooms and tunnels, monsters, combat with hit points and experience points, queued messages, treasure, chests, traps, potions — it's quite a respectable set of "dungeon furniture" considering the platform, we think. Fire up your emulator (or, bless you, a real VIC-20) and try it out!
