Just curious. I have seen monsters appear from the stairs. If I was to paralyze/hold/sleep a monster on top of the stairs, would that prevent any new wandering monsters from being generated while I cleared the level?

Awesome swhatley, glad you were able to make a winning run!

RT2 has become slightly easier but its still a big accomplishment to return with the amulet :D


On your questions and observations:

You're right that the minimum room size was bumped to 3x3. Maximum room width was reduced slightly as well. Overall these changes should have balanced out to give roughly the same amount of floor space, but organized in a bit more interesting way.

The special / elemental weapons do give off a larger light radius. Also maybe not known but you can wield a staff of light and get that effect too! For the hallways it was a conscious choice to maintain the shorter light distance to keep things more suspenseful and claustrophobic. I wanted the player to still be able to have some of those "oh shit" moments when you are fleeing another enemy and suddenly one is right in front of you :lol:

Paralyzing a monster on the stairs wouldn't prevent new wanderers from appearing... however I think that is an interesting idea, and it might get added in an update! :geek:

Wow! The new art looks awesome :) I don't have an apple device any more but still pop by the page now and then to see what's up and if anything new is out.
Congrats on surviving the bug smushing. :D

I upgraded to a new iPhone and used ITunes to backup and restore to my new phone. I’m currently on a mega run that’s been going for a long while now so was bricking it that I’d lose the save file.

On floor 140 something with 1.9m gold, unless I make a big mistake I can’t see how I’m going to die. At this point it’s a war of concentration as I’m fully stacked in all that I need to keep going. Got a blessed long sword in the 30’s now for Vampire slaying and eventually found Spartan Armour. Was gutted as I had my armour at -23 but couldn’t not take the Spartan so had to build that up which is now -33. Could have been in the 50s now!

I now level hop each party floor once and have decided to keep going down until the vampires nobble my health under 200. At which point I’ll just level hop until I build It back up with potions.

I’ve perfected my inventory so I can’t get caught short on anything. Keeping a stack of remove curse after getting burned on my last good run! Got about 25 scare monster scrolls and about 50 paralyse monster potions/wands plus a a 70 stack of food.

It’s a long way to beat Mike l but that’s basically the aim now. Had a fair few crashes but I basically ignore all drops and move to the next floor. So far so good!

Hi Inideo, thanks for the kind words! Someday I hope to expand beyond iOS / Apple but first I have to get out of my consulting and finish a few more of my game projects ;)

Haha this is amazing stuff Jim2wheels!

Of course you know I'll have to make things a bit more difficult in an update... in the meantime I look forward to seeing how far you can push the boundary in V2.0.064 :mrgreen:
