Combining its own unique take on the real-time roguelike genre, with a nostalgic 16-bit look and feel; Diehard Dungeon is a game that feels both familiar and quite different at the same time, "occupying a curious middle ground between The Legend of Zelda and The Binding of Isaac". [Edge online 2012] Followed by a trusty, treasure collecting companion chest, the player must make their way through the dungeons many randomly-generated rooms and levels. Armed with a sword and a ‘hand cannon’, all manner of nasty dungeon dwellers, bosses and traps will need to be defeated or traversed in order to emerge from the dungeon victorious! To aid them in their quest, the player may be lucky enough to encounter one or more upgrades, or new abilities, scattered throughout the dungeon. A randomly generated dungeon is created every playthrough. Discover the dungeons many secrets and multiple outcomes. Do you have what it takes to survive the dungeon?

I hope you have been enjoying the latest update (1.4.2). Thanks to everyone that has supported Diehard Dungeon over the last year. The game has changed quiet considerably since it's initial release, thanks in part to the excellent feedback I've received.

It might be a accepting file type instance problem. Might be because of my virus protector. It likes to cut out a lot of exceptions lol.. I'll try downloading it separate and adding it to "admin"

Hmm, that's strange! There aren't any major changes that would cause it to crash. Does the game start at all? It may be that one of the files has become corrupt. Have you tried the DRM free version?

The room changing mechanic is too sensitive in my opinion, it's really annoying to lose all the loot from a room by getting too close to the door. A 'open/pass through' button would be worth it.

Yeah, It's something I've wanted to change for a while I've got a couple of ideas that I'm experimenting with that I hope to include in an upcoming patch. Thanks for the comment! :)

Fantastic dungeon crawler. Love the graphics and gameplay. Gamepad support is also a HUGE bonus!
