Ronork its an Text based adventure RPG, you start outside an abandoned castle, looking for gold and fame. Go in or out and explore the world. Give me your thoughts about the Engine and everything. There is only one ACTIVE castle to explore, still I am planning to make this a giant open-worlded game. If you don't like text adventures, PLEASE leave this game alone, go find something else to do, don't just rate 0 stars because you don't like the category. Also, if you WANT to learn how to play READ the tutorial. Like Zork and other text adventures, the game is full of secrets, hidden items, epic monsters and treasure. Where YOU have to explore, don't expect easy stuff. I won't take in consideration reviews of people who never even cleaned the first castle. So play the game, don't just press a few buttons and go trolling on 0 stars. Alright, for the lazy:
Press N to go NORTH.
Press S to go SOUTH.
Press E to go EAST.
Press W to go WEST.
Press LOOK to look around (IMPORTANT)
Press GET to get something from the room. If the item is hidden you must press several times, untill you actually find the item.
Press KILL to attempt to kill something nearby. NOTE that you will automaticly return one room after your attack. I coded it this way so I can avoid button smash battles, but turn based.
Press MAGIC to heal yourself with magic. NOTE You can only do it after you find a magical scroll.
Press SAVE to save your progress. (DON'T FORGET!)
Press LOAD to load your progress.(DON'T FORGET!)

If I receive a good feedback, I will continue to expand the world even further. For now consider it a one quest only.

-Simple example on how to move and stuff.

"There is a path NORTH of here."
(click NORTH.)
"There is a path EAST of here."
if you want to go back to the previous room, obviously you go SOUTH, (click SOUTH), otherwise (click EAST.)

-Simple example on how to battle:
"There is a monster here."
(click KILL) -You will go back one room. So lets consider that the monster is NORTH of us. (click NORTH and then KILL and then repeat the process).

-Simple example to look around.
"You are in a dark room."
(click LOOK around)
"You are in a dark room and there is something in the ground."

**NEWS: Thank you guys for all the ratings. The game has indeed passed Judgement with the score I was hoping to get, so now I will make an Update this week including:
-2 brand new dungeons.
-Classes!
-Level System.

UPDATE:
BUGFIXES: On merchant and on camping site path.
Better buttom layout and some other things!

The game is ok. There are a few bugs. I found the merchant before killing the slime and he said. He couldn't sell me anything because I didn't have money, but my gold still went into the negative. So the gold from the slime left me with only 3 gold. On top of that, sometimes the navigation doesn't make sense. Going south at the desert gets you to the forest east of the campsite.
Aside from these bugs I like the music. The interface works great but the north, south, east, and west buttons could be mapped to the keyboard keys N,W,S,&E. Also, considering it is the only thing you ever see, the interface could use some work graphically. I'm not you should lose that 8-bit feel but there could be more than Arial font and rectangles drawn in flash for buttons.


Brunodev responds:

Thanks for your review. Just fixed the bug of currency and fixed the South at desert. Please keep those bugs report coming so I can fix them.
*Updating the .swf shortly.

Text based games generally aren't my thing, but I don't mind them either so I decided to give it a shot. I honestly didn't get very far due to the glitches. For starters I noticed I started with an hp count of 00, and gold was blank. I think the way it displays is weird. I'd rather have it display an hp count of say 3, than deal with a bunch of 0's that don't make sense.

Anyways...lets continue. I go north, pick up the lamp, and proceed to kill the slime. The slime drops some gold, so I use get and all it does is tell me is that I picked up the lamp (again) when I had already did that. I want to pick up the gold. Afterwords, I accidently hit kill again, and despite the fact it told me I killed the slime and it dropped gold, I'm somehow back in combat with it. I don't know if all these glitches are a problem on my end but it seems unlikely. Just in case I was attempting to play it on firefox, though I don't think that would matter.

I do think you put alot of work into this game from the little bit I observed, but right now the glitches make it unplayable for me. I gave you 3 stars for effort, but that's bound to rise a bit once the glitches are gone.


Brunodev responds:

Hmm Thank you, We are fixing the health thingy in a second. Oh yeah the combat. You pick the gold automaticly. So I'll make sure I'll point that out on the death of monster description.

*The health is fixed already!

Seems interesting but the battling is annoying. It sent me back to the last room a dozen times and it just kept saying we both missed until finally it worked. I think the fighting takes away from your game honestly.


Brunodev responds:

Hmm alright. Do you have an advice on how to make the battle system better? I couldn't come up with something else =/. Anyway, thanks for your review.

Needs a tutorial... in the game...


Brunodev responds:

There IS, click commands. Did you read anything that I typed down on description? Or just the "FOR THE LAZY:" part?
Yeah you were one of the ones that are not for this game. If you couldn't explore a MENU, how are you going to explore the game world. Thanks for your 1 stars.
