POWDER (Game Boy Advance)

random genres graphics themes release info

I went looking for a roguelike for PSP, and POWDER came up. The game was written by Jeff Lait, who wanted a roguelike for his GameBoy Advance, and decided to make one himself. It's derived from Nethack, which I never really played that much. It was ported to many other platforms, including PSP.
Yay, a room of monsters!

    I look forward to trying a new type of roguelike, one not derived from Moria.

    After a few rough games with my character dying on dungeon depth 1, my current game is going swimmingly. George3, my fighter has survived for 43 minutes and reached depth 5. I had a troublesome encounter with a really strong named Floating Eye on depth 4, but managed to zap it with a Wand of teleport and escape to depth 5.

    Got the score 856. I fought bravely and vanquished 114 creatures, including 10 Trolls and a Cockatrice, and even fought a Red Dragon, which I managed to teleport away before it killed me. I ended up clubbed to death by a Cave Troll.

    I love that you can observe your enemies move around and loot your corpse after you are dead.

    I reached depth 4, and killed and ate a Blue Dragon. Awesome. And then a Cockatrice turned me to stone.

    Got the score 790. Just played a great game of POWDER (v117) on my MacBook. My evil necromancer, Salat, reached dungeon level 6 and was killed by a Blue Dragon.
