7DRL Challenge 2018: DEAD FACE

“DEAD FACE” by Jeremiah Reid.

“Dodge a whirlwind of bullets and rockets[.] Drive huge, multi-tile mechs or let the mechs fight for you[.] Wield rocket launchers, machine guns, drills, lasers, and flamethowers[.] Stay hidden or push your luck by stealing corporate secrets[.] Hack everything!”

Another neat roguelike with a amazing game mechanical twist: Instead of just slaying down your enemies, you can hack and hijack them with a fast paced puzzle ‘fighting’ system. Here you can run several programs to slash down the memory of your foes. But be careful: You don’t have much time for doing that, and sometimes you simply need a new combination of commands to fight them successfully. Each new combination will reduce your time span anyway.

Whenever you are successful with doing that, you can move around with these enormous mechs and fight other ones. That way it’s much easier to steal the secrets of the mega corporations. How long can you stay alive? >>PLAY
