Z's Roguelike Stuff
Library Home || Full Table of Contents || Library Help
|Mathematical games and projects include HyperRogue, a treasure-collecting, goblin-killing adventure set in non-Euclidean space -- specifically, a hyperbolic plane of negative curvature filled with elixirs and slime beasts; and Hydra Slayer, which begins with simple addition and subtraction before progressing to divisibility and more sophisticated number properties -- all of which complicates weapon choice (the more powerful the tool, the rarer its applicability, e.g., a blade that can cut 12 heads at once is useless against hydras which have fewer than 12 heads).|
