GAMEPLAY PROTOTYPE

Imagine Minesweeper as an adventure game, in Dungeon Squeaker you play as a mouse who finds a magical compass which points to the nearest threat. Oh and the mines are cats.

Please play and comment! I desperately need feedback!

Gameplay

The gameplay is very puzzle oriented. 
• You can move adjacent & diagonal. 
• Adjacent tiles become revealed. 
• The compass points to the nearest enemy. 
• Don't stop on spikes!
• Step next to an enemy and they hurt you. 
• Step on an enemy to defeat them

The key to defeating enemies is to explore tiles you know to be safe and use the space to triangulate the enemy. Step diagonal onto enemies to defeat them without getting hit back. 

Editor

The game includes the level editor I use to create the game content. In the final version the players will be able to create and share their own adventures. Currently you can view and edit the levels. This doesn't save in the build yet, so experiment away.

Platforms

My greatest hope is to release the game on the Nintendo Switch.
Besides that that it will be released on Steam / itch.io / mobile (premium).

It looks great and plays great too! My only feedback is that I didn't know I could click on the book, until I did, and that's the only way how I learnt I could actually defeat the animals instead of having to try to sneak though, though it would be nice to do a pacifist run.

Yes, I'm working on that next! :)
Between levels there will be pages of the book, including the hint you can consult it during play!

Wonderful game. The only issue I've encountered is that the compass and book are there to freely show you where the enemies are and what they are, but they don't stand out enough. I frequently forgot about them and ran into several enemies my first time through. Adding a slight animation would be helpful, but its your call.

The game seems awesome, can't wait to see more levels!

Cheers Ztuu! If you have any feedback, I would welcome it! :)

Ah you already did by the video, cheers! ;)
