Ali the Android is a sci-fi roguelike/metroidvania that focuses on combat, unlocking new weapons, and collecting power-ups.


Ali the Android is a fast-paced, combat-heavy roguelite/metroidvania. The game features ten floors; every other floor includes a new weapon or power-up, which can be used both for combat and with some effect on the surrounding environment.

  • Characters become stronger by collecting power-ups at the end of each floor
  • Each weapon can be used to unlock certain environmental tiles
  • Players can back-track to unlock secret rooms once they acquire the appropriate tools
  • HP does not regenerate in the dungeon
  • Monsters attack aggressively, forcing the user to rely on tactics and skill

The game is currently in public release. It is fully playable. The source code is available on GitHub:
