CryptRover is a coffeebreak roguelike

CryptRover was originally a 7DRL completed just before the 7DRL Contest 2008. An extended version is available from the subversion repository and the official CryptRover website.

In CryptRover, you play an archaeologist trapped in an underground crypt with a limited supply of air. You must survive long enough to reach the crypt's exit.

  • Be too rash - and the arachnids will nibble you to death.
  • Be too wary - and your air supply will run out.

Luckily, the ancients have left behind med packs, air cans and batteries in the crypt which you can use to your benefit.

The 7DRL version of Crypt Rover was the program of the week on Cymon's Games the week of 10 October 2008.
