This game is still in development, so please give me feedback. Thanks!

If you like Rogue-likes but are tired of things like inventory management and stats comparison but still want the depth and adventure, then here it is! All you need is WSAD* (*author's preferred control scheme, you can also use arrow keys or mouse).

Asterius is a "smart" and true, but streamlined rogue-like dungeon crawler game, inspired by ASCI games, but made so each procedurally generated dungeon is winnable.  The game is carefully crafted to give each dungeon a hand-designed feel with the randomness of a rogue-like. The mechanics are easy to learn but take a long time to master.

Your progress is automatically saved so come back any time to continue your game! (WARNING: Only works if Flash Player can save in your browser's tmp folder, otherwise, you can always download the swf below)

Move: Arrow keys or WSAD
Menu: Space Bar
Map: Shift
Zoom: +,- (-,= keys)
Mouse: Left click only (it's Flash)

For touch screens, you can change the controls to use swipe controls

Please leave a comment. I'm open to feedback as the game is still in development!

This game is excellent.  I don't have any complaints with it.  Keep doing what you're doing and I can't wait for the full product.


That's great and very encouraging. Thank you!
