RogueSweeper video game by Bacioiu Ciprian

Made by Bacioiu Ciprian

Update: 22 - 07 - 2017:

A new build of Roguesweeper has been uploaded. Fixes a few crashes and sound problems on Windows.

RogueSweeper is a mashup between a roguelike and a minesweeper game. Tap to reveal tiles, monsters, traps or items. Tap (or click) your way to the bottom of the infinite dungeon. How far can you go?

The game has a level scaling system that requires you to manage your XP. Will you buy that health potion and lose your current level or will you risk tapping on that monster?

Stats (Str and Evasion) scale with your level. Note that you can lose your current level by spending XP in the shop. Combat happens by tapping on an enemy. Destroying a monster will award you with food and maybe a free item!


5 items that can heal, feed, reveal the map and enemies and increase your stats,

8 enemies

In-Game shop that allows you to buy items with your XP

Generated dungeons with items, monsters and traps

No end in sight! Delve deeper and deeper

Available for Windows and Android

Want the source code? It's on github (MIT licensed). Want more info on the game, rules, items and enemies? Download the manual. It's free. Want to check out what games I've worked on before? Check out the portfolio on my website.

I initially made the game during Global Game Jam 2015. This is the post-jam version. I priced it at 1.30, which is how much a beer costs in my country. So buy me a beer and play my take on a casual roguelike.

Anuchard. It was known as a place of wonder and peace, a land of limitless bounty suspended in the heavens above. Five ancient Guardians kept it safe from all harm... Until they turned on the kingdom and its denizens. The Anuchardian paradise fell from the skies, crashing onto the surface of the world below. Only a tiny speck of an island survived the fall intact. The rest coalesced into a twisted mass of winding passages, wild magic, and vicious monsters, known simply as The Dungeon. Somewhere within, the five treasonous Guardians lay asleep.Generations passed as the few survivors eked out an existence in the Orchard, the sole village on the island, maintaining what little remains of Anuchardian magic. Farmers tend to the fields, scavengers try to pick the bones of the kingdom in the Dungeon. All await the Chosen One, the Bellwielder who will take up the Audros Bell, enter the Dungeon, and wake the Guardians from their slumber, and bring back the paradise lost: Return Anuchard to the heavens.Finally, you were judged worthy to take up the mantle of the Bellwielder.
