Descend into the Dungeon of Chaos, retrieve the Amulet of Yendor, kill all who stand in your way and return with your prize.


There is a lot of hidden genius in this game. I love that it is keyboard-only control. For a game where you CAN'T JUMP (until way late in the game, or so I hear), it manages to be exceptional. The way you have to actually search for lore to try and understand what's happening is very interesting. It's refreshing to play as a woman who is trying to save her husband in a kind of inverse Orpheus and Eurydice scenario. It's also pleasant to play as a woman in a game that does not skimp on the gore. It's hard to figure out how to unlock certain things, but it is satsifying when you do (if only by serendipity).

I was level 6 or 7 on floor 3 and some random enemy Quickened and insta-killed me and my minion. Very rude. Only I'm allowed to do that!

And I've had about enough Flies.

Anyway, I've been looking for a game that was as good as Spelunky to fill the void left by Spelunky after I finished it, and Red Rogue is that game. Except it's harder.

I became killed by the Horror

This was the first roguelike flash game I played. If i love games of the gender today is because of this one.

I remeber when I first played this shit. Stuff surprised me, it was fun, new everytime... And I kept forgetting about it and trying to find it again.
I'll never let this game go.

"You'll die a lot, but you'll kill a lot of things too, and if your lucky, you might just beat it"
