Spelly is a coffeebreak roguelike
In Spelly, the player slays monsters and uses their corpses to cast magic spells and gain experience.
The player bumps into monsters to kill them, then collects their corpses.
To accumulate points and gain experience levels, the player casts spells by using their collected corpses to spell out English words. They win when they cast the spell "YENDOR."
Each new depth of the dungeon introduces a new type of monster that can spawn.
Jeff Lait's Letter Hunt was not an influence, but came from a similar premise: mash up a Roguelike with mechanics inspired by Scrabble, treating ASCII characters as letters in English words.
