Roguelike Level Generators

Screenshot of Multiple Level Generators

This repository contains multiple 2D "dungeon" level generator algorithms. Depending on the genre of game you're building, one algorithm will be better than another.

roguelike/level/roguelike: Classic Roguelike Level Generator

The concept is simple, inspired by sliding system used by Brogue. Random rooms are generated, and slid into the level in a random direction until they collide with an existing room. Once they collide a door is generated randomly in the colliding surface. We only generate rooms on odd rows and columns so that everything fits together perfectly.

This generator is useful when you care about every wall and room and you want them to fit together in interesting ways.

Example Generated Level

This is a simple visual representation (visualized using test/level/roguelike.js).

    #########    
    #.......#    
    #.......#####
    #.......#...#
#####.......X...#
#.../.......#...#
#...####/####...#
#.<.# #...# #...#
#...# #.>.# #####
#...# #...#      
##### #####      

In the above diagram, a . period represents floor, a # octothorp represents a wall, a / forward slash represents a normal door, and a X capital X represents a special door. The entrance to the level is a < less than symbol and the exit is a > greater than symbol.

Usage

const LevelRoguelike = require('roguelike/level/roguelike');
 
let level = LevelRoguelike({
  width: 17, // Max Width of the world
  height: 11, // Max Height of the world
  retry: 100, // How many times should we try to add a room?
  special: true, // Should we generate a "special" room?
  room: {
    ideal: 5, // Give up once we get this number of rooms
    min_width: 3,
    max_width: 7,
    min_height: 3,
    max_height: 7
  }
});
 
console.log(level);

Example Output

A typical level takes about 3ms to generate on my laptop. YMMV.

A special room can be used for whatever you want. I like to use them for shops and hidden rooms (you'll know when a door is special, too).

The world attribute is entirely optional for you to use. All the data within it can be recreated using the other attributes.

Caveats

  • Rooms must be odd sized, and at least 3 units wide/tall
  • World should likewise be odd sized
  • Weird things will happen if you try to generate rooms larger than the world

roguelike/level/gridKeys: Grid with Keys and Locks Level Generator

Unlike the Roguelike level generator, this level generator doesn'actually care about the content of each "room". These rooms could be Zork/Adventure style, where a room is a field or a whole building or a room. If specified, this level generator will lock doors and place keys throughout the level.

Example Generated Level

Grid with Keys and Locks Level Generator Screenshot

In this diagram, numbers are rooms, with room 000 being the entrance and room 006 the exit. If a room is colored than the room contains a key. A - hyphen or | pipe represents a door between two rooms. If the door is colored it means that door is locked.

Usage

const LevelGridKeys = require('roguelike/level/gridKeys');
const level = new LevelGridKeys({rooms: 10, keys: 3});
let result = level.generate();
console.log(result);

Room Types

Each room will contain a template field. This is a convenience for figuring out which prefabricated room designs you would like to use. This diagram explains the design of each room. In theory you can simply design one level for each letter and then rotate them for each number.

roguelike/level/metroidvania: Metroidvania with Snaking Room Shapes

This level generator is useful for creating Metroidvania style dungeons. Each individual unit in the grid is referred to as a zone. Rooms are made up of one or more zones and can be of arbitrary shapes. Levels will contain one exit in each of the cardinal directions. There is also an online Level Generator to give a better feel of level generation.

Example Generated Level

Metroidvania Screenshot

Usage

const LevelMetroidvania = require('roguelike/level/metroidvania');
 
const result = LevelMetroidvania({
  width: 5,             // Max number of zones wide
  height: 5,            // Max number of zones tall
  minZonesPerRoom: 1,   // Minimum number of zones per room
  maxZonesPerRoom: 3,   // Maximum number of zones per room
  minRoomsPerMap: 1,    // Minimum number of rooms per map
  maxRoomsPerMap: 9,    // Maximum number of rooms per map
  newDoors: 2,          // How many additional doors to add to prevent tedious linear mazes
  roomDiff: 2,          // When adding a new door, at least how far should their room ID's be
  roomDiffOdds: 1/2     // Odds of inserting a new door when an opportunity happens
});
 
console.log(result);

Example Output

The resulting object contains three properties. The first property is map and contains a grid of all zones in the map and is formatted [Y][X]. The next property is exits and gives us the coordinate of all four map exits. The last property is rooms, an array of rooms and the zones contained in each room.

Each zone element in the map contains a few properties. The open field is whether the zone is an open/passable/traversable area (if false, it's just void). The room field gives us the ID of the room this zone is a part of. The exit field tells us of the room contains a level exit. The zone field gives us the ID of the Zone (not very useful). The edges field describes the four edges of the zone.

An edge can be open if it connects to another Zone in the same room. It can be wall if the edge should contain a wall. It can be door if the edge shuld connect one room to another. It can be exit if this edge is a connection to another map.

roguelike/room/oddSquare: Odd Square Room Generator

This room generator was designed to play nicely with Grid with Keys and Locks Level Generator

Rooms must always contain odd dimensions. Rooms will always be squares.

Example Generated Level

Here's an example room of the A1 (four doors) template:

#####/#####
#.......,.#
#.I.I.I.I.#
#....,.,..#
#.I.....I.#
/....$..../
#.I.....I.#
#..,..,...#
#.I.I.I.I.#
#.,......,#
#####/#####

The capital I's represent pillars. The #'s represent walls. The /'s represent doors. The periods represent floor. The comma is floor with non-blocking litter. The $ is treasure.

Usage

The type property is described at in the section on Room Types.

const Gen = require('roguelike/room/oddSquare');
 
const gen = new Gen({
  size: 5
});
 
const room = gen.generate({
  type: 'E2',
  pillars: true,
  treasure: true,
  litter: 0.25, // 25% of free space (after decor) will be litter
  chasm: true, // Surroundings is "emptyness" as opposed to walls
  holes: 3, // Adds random holes (defaults to 0)
  circle: true, // Generates a circular room, must be combined with chasm
  gashes: 2, // Number of gashes (empty lines) to add
  decor: [ // Add blocking decoration to the map
    {id: 'cobweb', rate: 0.1, location: 'any'}, // 10% of free tiles will be cobweb
    {id: 'desk', count: 1, location: 'central'}, // 1 free tile not by a chasm will be a desk
    {id: 'books', rate: 0.05, location: 'edge'} // 5% of free tiles by chasm will be books
  ],
  focalpoint: { // Force focalpoint to be a certain coordinate, otherwise random
    x: 3,
    y: 4
  }
});

Example Output

The size property contains the dimensions of the room. The center property is the calculated center coordinate of the room. The doors property is an array of door objects.

The layers property contains four different layers. The composite layer is interesting in that it contains essentially a summary of the other three layers.

roguelike/utility/random: Utility Random

These are useful random functions which I find myself rewriting for many games.

Usage

const random = require('roguelike/utility/random');

random.shuffle(array)

Returns an array where the element order has been randomized

random.shift(array)

Maintains the order of array elements but randomly shifts them. As an example:

let result = random.shift([1,2,3,4,5,6]);
console.log(result);
// [4,5,6,1,2,3]

random.range(minInteger, maxInteger)

Returns an integer between the supplied integers, inclusive.

random.element(array)

Returns a random element from the given array.

random.elementWeighted(array, weightArray)

Returns a random element from array, based on the weights provided in weightArray. As an example, consider the following:

let result = random.elementWeighted(['A', 'B'], [1, 2]);
console.log(result);
// result is 33% likely to be A and 67% likely to be B

random.dice(diceSyntax, allowNegative=false)

Returns the result of a dice roll. By defaultl negative numbers are not allowed unless the second parameter is set to true. Here are some example dice syntaxes:

  • d6: 1 -> 6, evenly spread
  • 1d4: 1 -> 4, evenly spread
  • 2d8: 2 -> 16, mostly 9
  • 1d3 + 2: 3 -> 5, evenly spread
  • 2d7-7: 0 -> 7, mostly 0
  • 20: always 20

random.decide(floatThreshold)

Makes a decision (returns a boolean) based on the supplied floatThreshold. Here's an example:

let result = random.decide(0.7);
console.log(result);
// Result is 70% likely to be true and 30% likely to be false

roguelike/utility/grid: Utility Grid

Utility functions for working with a 2d grid. Each function makes use of points. The only properties used with a point are point.x and point.y, both of which need to be integers.

Usage

const grid = require('roguelike/utility/grid');

grid.adjacent(p1, p2)

Returns true if p2 is immediately North, East, South, or West of p1.

grid.line(p1, p2, cardinal)

Implementation of Bresenham's Line Algorithm. Generates a line between two points. Tiles won't be cardinal neighbors unless you set cardinal to true. Returns an array of points.

grid.distance(p1, p2)

Returns a floating point number representing the distance between the two points.

grid.fastDistance(p1, p2)

Returns an integer representing a very fake distance. This distance is simply the max absolute value difference between either the X or Y coordinates.

grid.sameSpot(p1, p2)

Returns a boolean of whether or not the two points occupy the same coordinate.

grid.ahead(point, direction, distance=1)

Returns a new point, distance units away from the origin point, in the supplied direction. The direction must be one of north, east, south, west.

Will throw a TypeError if the supplied direction is invalid.

roguelike/utility/gridCollection: Utility Grid Collection

Useful for creating a collection of dynamic entries associated with a coordinate in a grid. Each entry should have an .x and .y integer property (if they don't exist they'll be created).

Usage

const GridCollection = require('roguelike/utility/gridCollection');
const gc = new GridCollection();

gc.add(coord, entry)

Returns false if the entry already exists or if another entry already exists at the same coord otherwise true on success.

gc.get(coord)

Returns an entry if one exists, otherwise returns null

gc.has(coord)

Returns true if an entry exists at the coordinate or false if not.

gc.destroyAtCoordinate(coord)

Attempts to remove an entry at the coordinate. Returns true if the operation was successful or false if not (e.g. no entry exists).

gc.destroy(entry)

Removes the entry if it exists and returns a true, otherwise false if it's missing.

gc.moveAtCoordinate(oldCoord, newCoord)

Moves an entry from the old coordinate to the new coordinate, updating .x and .y properties if applicable. Returns true on success or false on failure. Will fail if new coordinate is occupied or old coordinate doesn't have an entry.

gc.move(entry, coord)

Moves the entry from its curent location to the specified coordinate. Updates the .x and .y properties if successful. Returns a false if either the entry doesn't exist or the new coord is occupied, otherwise returns true.

gc.each()

Returns an iterable representing each of the entries. Can be used like so:

for (let entry of gc.each()) {
  console.log(entry);
}

gc.clear()

Clears the collection of all entries. Returns the number of entries cleared in this manner.

gc.size()

Returns the number of entries in the collection.
