DoomRL > Bug Reports

PSA: You can move diagonally

(1/3) > >>

Another PSA.  Despite how the tiles and ASCII art looks, DoomGuy can actually move diagonally and squeeze through those itty-bitty corner spaces of walls.  I mean that is possible to go from ##.
to ##@
using diagonal movements.  Best part is that you don't even need to drop any of DoomGuy's gear to do so, unlike say NetHack.

PSA   Polar Surface AreaAnd well, Nethack isn't exactly the roguelike you should refer to when you want fun gameplay. (It's a funny game, but the gameplay isn't all that fun.)

So it is indeed a Good Thing that DoomRLGuy (who is much wussier than Doomguy unless we count OP items) can squeeze through walls.

(I'm sooo going to smack you for that arduous list of acronyms. >.< )

The reason for pointing out Nethack is in case people actually "play" that, or at least have heard of that.

For the record, I have played a fair bit of Nethack and am very familiar with the experience of throwing my bag through tiny cracks so I'll be small enough to squeeze through myself.  (I'd rather just use the pick-axe to make the hole wider, though)

Never really got into Nethack, and the only other Roguelikes I play are Pokemon Mystery Dungeon (which is trivial to complete if you're sufficiently determined), POWDER (which doesn't allow the player to move diagonally unless you do something odd like become a Grid Bug), and Spelunky (which is a sidescroller anyway)

Plus I play on a laptop without a numpad, and don't use diagonal movement unless I have to do so to get to the stairs, so I never rebind 'em either. This sort of PSA is always appreciated ^^
