Converting a 30 year old game

30 years ago, or there about, I wrote a Dungeon bash game. I called it Dungeon. It was turn based with up to four local players sharing the keyboard and taking it in turns to move their piece, then the monsters had a go and back to start until the mission completed or all the players died.

There were five classes of character, fighter, cleric, wizard, dwarf and elf. The classes set the default and maximum attributes for the player piece.

My brother used to play this game until reasonably recently, as long as you could boot to DOS and run in CGA mode (2 bit graphics – 4 colours), then the game would work.

It is time for a conversion. I am going to try extending my IntelliJ experiments to create a Windows Java version as well as an Android version.

In my subsequent posts I shall talk about the conversion topics as they come up….starting with the fact I can’t “see” the game anymore…
