This is a first-person shooter(FPS) dungeon crawl game with roguelike elements. Levels and encounters are procedurally generated and include bosses, trap rooms, spells, and treasures. During gameplay, extra weapons and perks can be unlocked, and leveling up and randomly generated content to add additional variety.
The game focuses on fast-paced first-person shooting, with an old-school vibe, and updated handling and game mechanics. Dungeon crawling and RPG/Roguelike elements are added into the mix, resulting in a fun, challenging and varied game, with lots of content to discover.
Fight almighty bosses, get through rooms filled with traps, and treasures that may help you in your journey… Each game is a whole new experience!
Unlike most Rogue-thingies, on Ziggurat your combat skills will be the most important asset to keep advancing. Leveling up and randomly generated content is there to improve the variety and make each game different, not to make the game a roll dice or an unbearable grind.
Most perks are designed to change the way you have to play or the weapons you’ll want to use. Do you want more speed in exchange for less health, or maybe is better to have mana regeneration? Increase drop rate, or refill ammo here and now? No number game here, simple and direct choices.
We’ve also ensured that, as a proper FPS game, the experience is quick and direct. There’s no inventory to manage or the need to compare two almost equal item drops, just weapon selection, and mana/health are usually the bargaining chip.
A whole arsenal of magic and alchemic weapons will be at your disposal. Wreak havoc among your enemies, but watch your mana reserves or you might regret it later!
