Mazes of the Abyss
This game employs the same alpha/beta pruning algorithm used in chess games, except this game has simultaneous multi-piece movement.
The player starts with a mob of four players. If monsters are adjacent to players, they attack each other automatically. However, if monsters outnumber a player the player sustains more damage and vice versa.
The player can pick up:
treasures for points.
weapons for increasing damage.
All this goes on automatically as any players in the mob move on top of objects. Substandard objects will be left behind in case they are needed later.
Left Mouse Button: Moves the player mob to the square under the cursor. The A* algorithm finds the player's mob the selected square.
Right Mouse Button: Fires a salvo of missile weapons to the cursor location.
<Esc>ape key: Quits the game.
Enter key: Restarts the game.
The goal is to kill all the monsters in the maze and then leave the maze through the escape square in the upper left corner of the maze. Each maze is uniquely randomized.
The game should work on any Windows platform since and including Windows 95. It uses DirectX runtime.
