One photo has my name at bottom left, the other is a screen capture.

WOW what a game!  Kept on clearing rooms, picking up a lot of shields, then got in one last nasty fight with several warriors/lizard people/something that took a ton of hits each, I was driving them back, killing one here and there...then with one last hit doing a big five points of damage, down I went for good...

This looks like Pixel Dungeon!  if so that's a great game, all-action, all-RPG sudden death crack-fest !!

This game's pretty cool too :) Hence why I've avoided it the last couple of days, due to being addicting!  Maybe I'll get back to it today though.

looking at Sixx's video, it's very similar to pixel dungeon, just side-scrolling instead of top-view.   I don't know how this one works, but in Pixel Dungeon the level layouts are always randomized, as well as where to find items, and you can get keys & come back to previous levels.  you have to eat food too or you starve & totally addicting...

@S.BAZ:

In this one you have to clear out rooms.  These dungeons are also randomized, although there are chunks that repeat, you just don't know what order they're going to be in until you start playing.  You just have to kill creatures and collect their gold.  Occasionally you'll find items (helmet, better weapon, armor) which help in case you screw up a jump and land on a spike (what looks like fire).  If you have an item, you won't lose any health (which can be replinished by collecting what looks like silver pieces after you kill something).

@DarrylB:

ah nice, this sounds very similar!  and do you gain experience levels as you go?

It doesn't seem like it.  You and enemies definitely have hit points, at least.  And if you're lucky you can gain several items, which helps.  I just played a game about half an hour ago where I got everything (a lance or something, helmet, armor, shield) and all of that lasted me for quite a while. 

The main thing is clearing rooms, which the most I ever cleared is on this posted game (5).  Well, I cleared 4 with that last game.  I lost everything and then faced some really strong enemies.  Lesser enemies only deal one or two points of damage; well, the last thing I fought took one hit and wiped out 6 points right then and there.  It was game over not long afterwards, especially since I was back to my crappy original sword (think your "crappy little pistol" on Doom vs. anything else you get in that game for comparison!).

fun!  I got 58 so far. 

I'll have to go back to it when I have a better connection, right now it's kinda jerky.

60

the game apparently needs a lot of work.  I got stuck in walls a couple times & once crashed the game.  also i keep finding a place where it's impossible to go on & I must refresh the page. 

maybe this chart should have [V1.2.2] in the title.

Are you sure there's no door to enter, which then takes you to another room?

I've never had the game crash but I've gotten stuck briefly a couple of times.

Yeah, I'd look for a faint door when you get to a supposed place where you can't go anywhere else, then arrow key down (I think it is, but then, the instructions are right there on the page) when standing in it to take you to the next room. 

Someone posted a screenshot on its page just the other day about removing that chunk, then just as quickly deleted it when they realized their mistake.

I've never gotten to a point where I couldn't continue in that game, ever.

@DarrylB:

you're right there was a door there! 

I'm up to 90 now  :)

whenever I got stuck in a wall I was able to scramble out, except once I bounced up into the ceiling & then out of the screen & numbers appeared all over the screen & it was frozen, crashed.
