Depot Games: Aybabtu's ``Mirkwood Forest'' RPG
Project Status: Completed
Links: Web Site
Category: Role Playing
Source Code: Available
Author's Description: This is the most recent game I've been/still working on. It's inspired by "Rogue", but doesn't really follow the "genre" of "Roguelike". It differs by having a turn-based (text) battle system, and the dungeons aren't generated as nicely. The object is to get through 20 parts of the Mirkwood forest from "The Hobbit" by J.R.R. Tolkien. On the way, you'll pick up equipment, battle monsters, and level up. I haven't beaten it yet on version 4.0, but it's possible (Hey...there is a winners list...)
It's in ASCII graphics (like Rogue), so don't expect anything spectacular (See my sig :). Just have fun with it. The source is included in the ayrl.zip file, along with instructions. I suggest you read the instructions...
(Please let me know what you think!!)
Ayrl.zip (~121KB) includes:
Rl.exe -the game
Rl.cc -the source code (C++)
Mflogo.txt -the little opening ASCII picture
Mfdoc.doc -Instructions (if you for some reason cannot use the .doc version, private message me, and I'll send you a text version.)
I continually update this game (I've got nothing better to do ;) so keep checking the updates panel (far right) when you load the Allegro.cc homepage!

ATTENTION WINDOWS XP USERS!!
In my experience, this game ONLY runs in full screen mode. I wish XP had better dos support, but it doesn't. If it doesn't work this way...you're screwed...sorry! You could also try changing compatibility to Windows 95 in the properties window, but I haven't tested this.
At this moment, no new features are being developed/added, so the next versions (after 4.5) will be mainly bugfixes.
