Spork -- nethack or zork mode Curses game

Here's my latest piece of insanity -- a Curses-based game that lets one wander through the dread dungeons of Spork in either a first-person, zork-like mode ("You are in a room...") or in top-down, roguelike mode (that funny @-sign moves around). It's still got a tiny bug or two, but I'm too lazy to track it down.

As stated above, the game needs the Curses library off of CPAN in order to work. The worst part of this, by far, is the map-generating algorithm, which generates maps "on the fly." It's also rather kludgy, partially to allow zork-like mode to work, and partially because I planned to add rooms (it's just hallways right now).

There isn't any help feature, so I'll just list the keys here:

  • Arrow keys move the guy around. Note that Curses doesn't like the number pad on most terminals.
  • ` (backtick) toggles between first-person (descriptive), and overhead (maplike). This was sortof the main point of this exercise.
  • m generates a new level.
  • c turns on the cheat mode, if you'd like to see the level and live without fear of the grue..
  • q quits.

So prepare for hours of fun for the whole family! You might want to watch out for that grue, though..

Update: I took out the v5.6.0 dependant parts, replacing "our" variables by globals.
