Atlas Warriors is a short minimalist roguelike.


  • A novel 'kill or be killed' mechanic. When you die, you have a small number of turns to get another kill to be restored to life.
  • Weapons that are unique to fight with, inspired by Brogue
    • Axes swing in a 90 degree arc
    • Dagger counterattack when you are attacked
    • Sword will parry some attacks, giving you a free attack
    • Blunt weapons will stun the opponent for a turn
    • Polearms will attacks through opponents to the opponents behind them
    • Unarmed opponents get a free attack after a successful attack
  • Short tight 40x20 maps
  • ASCII animation effects for fearsome dragon flame
  • A small number of monsters that are unique to fight against
    • Critters who will blindly attack you
    • Bandits who will assault you with weapons like your own, and call for help
    • Orcs who will assault you with ranged attacks and try to stay out of your melee range
    • Goliaths who will punch you with such force that you'll go flying back
    • Healers who will support your enemies
    • Zombies who will reduce your defence when you are surrounded by them
    • Drakes and a Dragon who will blow deadly fire at you
    • Assassins who will (but do not yet) disappear when adjacent to walls
    • The Evil Necromancer, who will heal and power himself on the souls of the Zombies nearby and
    • The Warlord, heavily supported by healers, with deadly attacks and extremely good defence
