- Completeness: Fully implemented. I couldn't identify any bugs. Sometimes doors would spawn in unhelpful places but that seemed possibly part of the design. Aesthetics: The graphics are charming, the UI is readable, and the controls work well. The music's a plus, too. Fun: It had a solid gameplay loop. Near the later levels it started to get a little long, but it's definitely worth a playthrough. Unfortunately there's little variation on second or third runs, so there isn't a lot of replayability. Innovation: The doors closing is a sweet twist! I like it. I'm not sure it could support a whole game on itself but having that incorporated into other games would be cool. Scope: Scope is entirely reasonable. Traditional Roguelikeness: Yep it's a trad roguelike.
- A fun game! The door-transmogrification mechanic makes choosing which doors to open into an interesting decision. Opening at least some doors is required to see the whole map and reach enough keys, but doing so may let monsters loose and possibly make other areas harder to reach. I like the conversion of extra keys into health at level exit; it adds a little bit of a push-your-luck element, particularly when gathering the extra keys involves dodging around monsters. The game plays smoothly and animates nicely. I wish there was additional feedback on or near the player character when taking damage. It is also fairly easy to accidentally break down a wall; perhaps if there were some slight friction in taking player actions that will result in damage?
