ASCII Dungeon Crawler Made For Xbox 360

UberGeekGames made an Xbox 360 game that suits their name. Dungeon Adventure is a downloadable roguelike with ASCII art.

 

You don’t have to hit bats and search for loot as an “@.” Dungeon Adventure has tiles too.

But, the ASCII art makes Dungeon Adventure so much more nostalgic. The game supports chatpad and keyboard controls so it’s almost like playing a classic PC game on your Xbox 360.

You can get Dungeon Adventure from the indies game section on the Xbox Live Marketplace. It costs 240 Microsoft Points ($3) and is HDTV compatible. Nothing beats 720p # signs.

    hope it reaches the PSN as well, 3$ for a full-fledged dungeon crawler (ascii or otherwise) is a steal

    I found that trailer funny in that the character was attacking an emu, albeit in ASCII form.

    Finally. I never could stomach low-res Nethack on Wii. Ok, that’s free, but this is HD!!!1eleven.

    Ahem.

    Seriously, stuff like this is what makes downloadable games platforms so awesome. I wish someone would hire the Dwarf Fortress guy to do a version for consoles.
