I really liked the fact that you accelerated if you keep the key pressed.
Very original RL gameplay.
Ski through the treacherous mountains back to your home.
This is a roguelike skiing game created as part of the 7DRL Challenge 2019. It features a skiing mechanic that is used for both movement and combat.
[Note: Space bar is a crucial non-standard movement control used to brake]
Objective of the game
There are several levels before you can reach your home. Each level contains different features or enemies. To reach the next level ski upward (north) to find a mountain pass to the next level.
Like with real skiing (I guess) you have to judge your speed and distance to obstacles. If you don't pay attention it is easy to hit a tree, or worse!
Use arrow keys, WASD or vi keys to move.
There are a few items you can find along the way, often inside cabins. It's possible to win without items, but the items will help. Items are picked up automatically. You have to move exactly over an item to pick it up, or time it right to snatch it. If you go too fast you will shoot past it. Press i to bring up inventory to use items.
There are a few hostile creatures roaming the mountains with different movement styles. You can either attempt to fight them or a better alternative might be to ski round them. The difficulty is going fast enough to outrun them but not so fast you hit a tree.
This list is short but that's probably due to a lack of play testing...
