Did you notice that the blue particles sometimes have a darker outline?

Yes Hapax, there are not the same ones (blue are standard, light blue is freezing shot).

Ah, okay then  :)
I didn't realise that you could fire two different ways with one weapon. I did look to see if the other weapon did it too but it doesn't seem to so I thought I'd just check  ;D

Wow, it's really awesome!!!! Played it a lot!! It's the thing I was searching for last year! Just simple dungeon adventure with graphics...   ;)

The things I want more in the next updates is pause and ability to save game. And keep coding! You're doig great!!!

May be shootng by mouse will be more easy. But it will make the whole game easier, so (like programmers say) it's ot a bug - it's a feature  ;)

Hapax, the "ice" weapon is a bit special: there is a cooldown between freezing attacks, that's why you can shoot two different missiles with the same weapon.

Wow, it's really awesome!!!!
Thanks achpile !

Pause is implemented (ESC or loosing the focus).
And game is automatically saved - if you're not fighting when leaving the game. I should had more feedback.
But it will stay a permadeath game : loading a save file destroys it and there are no checkpoints.

It's already implemented, but you can only fire in the 4 directions, like with the keyboard.

Thanks p5yc0, glad you've enjoy it !

Oh, not all the keys are configurable at the moment.

ESC: Pause - resume - back (menu)
Return: select (menu)

and for dev-purpose (but available on the releases):
Lshift + X: Restart a game
F2: show bounding boxes.
____________

I've done a options menu, with the language selection and keys config.
Launching the game for the first time will not ask for keys anymore, but for language.
English will set up default keys for QWERTY keyboard, and French for AZERTY keyboard.

It will be available in the next release.

I saw this topic a while ago but I never took the time to test the game until now.

I'm really impressed, the game is very well done, you got stuff like bindable keys and even a language selector, wow :o, a lot of devs don't even bother with that.

Even though the gameplay is not my cup of tea, I had a good time playing it. Still, I'm not much of a fan of just being able to shoot in four directions, and the character moves way too slow for my taste, but hey, that's just me :P

Good job,  keep it up :D

By the way, I made a quick translation to spanish in case you want to add it.

Cheers  ;)

Thanks achpile!
The next release should feature more items and monsters, I'm currently working on it.
And someone is helping me with the pixel art, and will try to re-design all.
Well... A lot of work  :P

Thanks AFS!
Well, the "4 directions shooting" is an important gameplay element, so it will stay so, but I may had different playable characters, with malus/bonus - like a quicker but weaker character, etc...
I really appreciate the Spanish translation, and I will of course integrate it in further releases !

I think it will be nice to use UTF-8 for translations file  ;) Or may be I'll fork your repo and make a PR, If I'll have enough time next week  :)

Achpile, I dunno how to make SFML work with UTF-8 data file, but that will be very useful (I can't make it work under OSX with proper encoding right now).

Hmm, maybe using wchar_t* and std::wstring, but I never tried it  ;D
