About Game

Ruoeg is a very simple game where you incarnate a warrior and have to go deeper in a dungeon to get the most amount of score possible.


  • 4 different races:
    • Human: Balanced status. This race equates to play in normal difficulty.
    • Elf: Less amount of all status. This race equates to play in very hard difficulty (have fun trying to kill the first enemy).
    • Dwarf: More attack and armor but less healt points.
    • Orc: More amount of all status. This race equates to play in easy difficulty.
  • 3 kind of interactive items:
    • Chests: Grant you with a generous amount of gold (score).
    • Map: Allows you to see the whole map of the floor. Downstairs are displayed too.
    • Compass: Allows you to see the location of chests and downstairs.
  • 8 different kind of enemies:
    • Dragons and Small Dragons.
    • Trolls and Small Trolls.
    • Skeletons and Small Skeletons.
    • Goblins and Small Goblins.

The game is available for Windows. However it can be compiled for GNU/Linux using Ncurses.
