“... if you’re into a game that rewards replay and endurance, Scred is for you.” [Rock Paper Shotgun]

Welcome to the Quarries of Scred. You will surely perish.
Bringing classic arcade games such as Boulder Dash and Dig Dug into the 21st century, Quarries Of Scred is an unapologetically brutal, retro-inspired arcade game designed to see just how far you’ll go to risk your bounty.
You’ll question your sanity as you dive deeper into the quarry, hoping to return with a larger reward. And with each map being procedurally generated, you’ll never know what the next quarry will throw at you.
Get ready to have Bob killed your way:
Bob’s going to die. A lot. It’s inevitable. However before he does, you get to choose how he risks his life. Should Bob take the land mines, the lasers, his gravity inverter or some other sweet power up?
Come on in. The water’s … deadly:
Have we mentioned that Bob’s going to die? Don’t let that stop you. Come into the quarry, pick up a few gems and get your reward. It’s easy! Now try a little more. And more. And more. Oh look, your greed killed Bob.
Don’t be sorry. He won’t remember:
When Bob inevitably dies, don’t stress. He’ll pop right back up, ready to go down into the Quarry again. And because each quarry is procedurally generated, he’ll think it’s a brand new challenge. Which it is. Sort of.

This game tests your own greed - how far you are willing to go for virtual, temporary riches? In essence it is a dungeon-crawler, a rogue-like, you go on and on in a procedurally generated quarry where the Rankler is always after you. Dying means permanent death, and you start over. The art is in ASCII format, and is simply awesome to look at. The gameplay is addicting, to say the least. It is also massive amounts of fun - you control Bob, get cool power ups and then die. The challenges and interaction in the game is deep and great too. An indie gem, 10/10
