Nine things I saw in Brogue before I starved to death

, | Games


I just starved to death on level 6 of Brogue, an old-school ASCII dungeon crawler available for the iPad. It takes a very particular dungeon crawler to let you starve to death. A real man’s dungeon crawler. Not some easy mode dungeon crawler where you can mosey about as long as you want because you never have to eat.

Here are the things I saw before I starved to death: a pontificating zombie, a crying toad, a skipping spider, a laughing unicorn, a quivering goblin mystic, a dancing troll, a whistling phoenix egg, a humming centipede, and a spinning will-o-the-wisp. It might have had something to do with that lavender potion I drank.
