I'm writing a text-adventure style game that generates the map at random each time it's played. Right now, I just have an array of rooms that I connect with random hallways. The problem is that even if you went around in a square, (south, east, north, then west) you could end up in a different room than where you started. I could put the rooms in a two-dimensional array to keep that from happening, but the whole game is about getting stuck in a maze-like castle, anyway. So I want to know what people think about this: will it add challenge to it, or will it be too hard to play?

It sound great!
Just as long as the rooms look different in ways other than size...

The description text for all the hallways is the same, if that's what you meant.

:lol: Billy "Commander Keen" Blaze does NOT live in Middle Earth... There aren't many Vorticons there.

I think I'll just leave it the way it is and use the two dimensional array in the sequel.
