No Time To Play

RogueBot

Welcome to RogueBot! What you have here is a retro arcade game of skill, planning and a little luck, that you can play on your coffee break. Explore the city, collect the three microchips and return to the starting point (it will appear on the minimap) to complete a level. There is an infinite number of levels, and they never repeat.

RogueBot is best played with a gamepad, and if one is connected it will override the cursor keys. Press Space or button 1 to start/pause the game, and Escape to exit. If you want to know how fast it’s running, press F at the title screen to toggle the framerate counter. That’s about all.

System requirements:

  • for the desktop edition, any PC capable of running Windows XP, or the Linux equivalent (though you’ll need a much newer Linux);
  • for the online edition, a reasonably modern PC and any browser with HTML5 support; gamepads are supported from Firefox 31 on — can’t say about other browsers.

A bit of history: RogueBot was started in a hurry so I could enter it in the Procedural Generation Jam 2014, but since there wasn’t enough time I submitted just the level generator and graphics engine. The original jam submission can still be downloaded for free below.

Disclaimer of warranty: the desktop editions are provided AS IS. In particular, I can’t promise the game will run on your machine; otherwise it doesn’t save to disk, connect to the Internet or anything like that.

You can buy the game for Windows and Linux over on Itch.io. Enjoy!
