Run To The Stairs
Run To The Stairs is a procedural generated dungeons racer. The goal is to race to the exit (the stairs) of a dungeon floor. You must be within the top 7 ranks to move to the next level.
Your character is displayed as an “@”-sign.
Your opponents are displayed as capital letters.
The stairs are displayed as a “>”-sign.
You can pick up the following items:
$ : Coins give score
* : Permanent Speed-Upgrade by 10%
! : Nitro – Doubles your speed for 10 turns, when ignited.
At the beginning you and your opponents all move with the same speed.
The speed of your opponents increases with every dungeon-level.
Your opponents can only move in 4 directions whereas you can move in 8 directions (including diagonal movement).
Diagonal movement enables you to cut corners and use shorter paths when traversing rooms!
There are 3 possibilities to overtake opponents:
Take advantages of your diagonal movement in rooms.
Find a shorter path.
Increase your speed by speed-upgrades or nitros.
You are supported by a magic navigation system:
One possible path to the stairs is always indicated by a colored trace.
Be aware: This path is calculated considering 4-way-movement!
Therefore it is by no means ideal when you are capable of 8-way-movement!
Always consider alternative routes in order to take advantage of your ability to walk diagonal.
As Always, Good Luck and Have Fun.
