This neat little take on roguelikes is focused on bite-sized romps through missions. You can choose between four types: kill a certain amount of monsters, collect gold pickups, find mystical orbs, or rescue fairies that are prisoner. You chose one, are given a round of items, and are pushed out into a random dungeon. Each time you complete one, the level goes up and that task gets bigger/harder.
One important thing of note is that items are extremely important, and you need to decide very carefully when to use each one. For example: because there’s not much time in the dungeon for you to get strong enough, you want to save your flames for extremely powerful roadblocks as opposed to a wimpy spider.
Cave Noire’s a really neat idea for “on the go” dungeon crawling, especially if you want to actually finish your run on your lunch break as opposed to quicksaving.
