This game is finished! You can instant-play it here.
This is my attempt to make a casual random dungeon game that can be played easily in one sitting. I've decided to make it in the form of a traditional table-top card game. Tutorial hints will guide you through the game, but here are the rules if you want to read them:
The object of the game is to collect as much loot as possible and then return to the entrance without dying
Click on flashing tiles to reveal rooms in the dungeon. Each room contains one of the following:
- A trap, in which case you lose one of your three health points (top-left corner). If you lose all your health points you die and get no points. The trap will be triggered every time you enter that room, so it helps to remember where they are.
- Loot, in which case you draw a loot card, either a treasure worth points or a magic item that does whatever it says on the card.
- A ladder up or down. Levels get larger and more difficult as you go down, but also have better loot.
The "Good Fortune" card increases your multiplier by 1 every time you cast it, but if your health drops to 1 heart, then your multiplier drops back down to 1.
You can end a game prematurely by pressing "Space".
DOWNLOAD THE GAME (v1.00 -- 3.0 MB)
Optionally, you can download some background music that I wrote. Just put it in the same folder as the game:

Some people are getting errors about non-existent surfaces. This is probably caused by surfaces getting erased from video memory. The only way I've been able to duplicate it is by changing the screen resolution during play. So don't do that. Also, if you have screen-savers popping up during play, try disabling them. It might also be caused by old videocards. If you get this error, please report it with as much information as you can about when it happened and anything you may have been doing when it happened.
