Dungeonfield

Plunked into a 2D, side-scrolling world randomly generated and populated with dangerous dungeons, and you'll need to smash, stab, dig, and otherwise destroy your environment to gather the supplies you'll need to craft and survive day-to-day. Turns out in a great battle, the kingdom was destroyed and all its people carted off to dungeons, and only you can save them.

It is really annoying.

Hi starbeamrainbowlabs. :) I actually mentioned that in the review, and even passed it along to the developer, who unfortunately decided not to fix it because there was the number key option apparently. It's disappointing, since it's part of that "needs polish" part I talked about.

Love the graphics, love the concept, HATE the inventory system and find the crafting system not super intuitive. Maybe that was on purpose, like, part of the game is figuring it out? In the meantime, I am just digging my way around obstacles, like God intended.

I came over to the discussion to see if anyone had found ways to workaround the frustrating parts of the gameplay, but looks like not so far. If the controls were less idiosyncratic, it would be more fun.

Hi Carny Asada. :) Yes, I believe in the tradition of Minecraft and Terraria as the game was inspired by, the intent is for you to have to figure out how to craft things through trial and error. Some like it, some don't.

Hints:

  • Not all dungeons have keys, but keys are common in the ones that do.

  • Many enemy spawn points can be destroyed/collected with the regular hammer. Block off the others. Ditto for dart shooters.

  • Almost everything can be destroyed. It's often easier to make your own path through dungeons rather than relying on what's there.

  • Build ropes or ladders at the bottom of long drops to cushion your fall.

  • Carry around a tunnel. You can lay it down to quickly rescue people. Simply pick it back up with the regular hammer to reuse it.

Resource Hints:

  • Wood: Walk along the surface and cut trees.

  • Iron: Common deep underground

  • Stone: Also common deep underground

  • Gold: Defeat enemies or loot chests in certain dungeons. You can also take advantage of deathtraps near spawn points to kill a bunch of enemies at once without risking your own safety.

Many thanks Bluemoose19!

Thanks, I didn't see that bit :)

I played the game through long enough to rescue everyone in a large map (not recommended). It's a fun game, but it could stand to be polished up a bit. My main issue with it is that goals aren't tracked, and nothing changes when they're completed.

Here's a list of some features/bug fixes I'd like to see:

  • Track goal progress and reward completion (e.g. give reward when everyone's rescued)

  • Make new craftable items as rewards

  • Make convenience features as rewards (e.g. increase max health, give longer reach)

  • Make an autosort for inventory / containers

  • Make more female sprites; they're vastly outnumbered

  • Make keys available in all dungeon types

  • when uprooting chests or containers, make their inventories explode out rather than erasing them

  • Make trees growable

  • Fix the gold hammer; it doesn't do anything

  • Make water behave better (e.g. make it portable, make getting out of it easier)

  • Allow jumping at the lowest depth

Kind of reminded me of a 2D minecraft. Maybe that's just me.
