DataQueen is a coffeebreak roguelike


Description

DataQueen is a hacking-themed game based partly on the board game Hive. You control the DataQueen bot, trying to repair the server and fend off invading gridbugs. You only die if you get surrounded! Enemies can't hurt you directly, but can restrict and annoy you. You have a wheel of hex powers that you can upgrade as you progress - the powers do different actions in the direction you attack in, but the directions change each round. You also have free movement on grid tiles, but enemies destroy these. Progression comes through connecting the pink server tiles and killing the bosses.

Windows, OSX and Linux versions available here:
