Simple ASCII terminal hexagonal map roguelike written in Rust.
You can try the game without installing anything. Check rhex demo server instructions.
The core goal of the project:
- ASCI/Unicode pure terminal UI first
- hexagonal map with tactical positioning
It's also intendent to exercise and practice my Rust knowledge.
Previous iteration of this idea was/is: [Rustyhex][rustyhex] . This two project might merge into whole at some point.
Rhex is using [hex2d-rs - Hexagonal grid map utillity library][hex2d-rs].
Watch rhex gameplay video:
Game requires terminal with 256 colors support, and Unicode font.
git clone https://github.com/dpc/rhex.git cd rhex cargo run --release
Note that you must to have the ncurses library installed and linkable for ncurses-rs to work. On Linux, this should be trivial. On OS X, consider installing ncurses using Homebrew. (Note that you have to force Homebrew to link the library to /usr/local/lib: brew link --force ncurses and set that path to LIBRARY_PATH environmental variable.)
The game is playable but not feature and gameplay wise complete.
rhex is actively seeking collaborators. If you'd like to practice your Rust
or/and find roguelikes interesting ping
