The Duel Mechanics

In this game every duel is a "one versus one duel".
Defeating one enemy will not replenish your Health Points.
Every time you defeat an opponent you will start a duel with the next one.
You lose when your Health Points reach 0.
Once you lose you will face a weaker opponent that you have already defeated.

The level cap is 100.
Once you get to the opponent #10101 the "1337 Mode" will activate: here you'll face the strongest adversaries, all with Unique gear equipped.
When you are in "1337 Mode" your Health Points will be restored after each duel.

Your pg will attack every 1.5s / SPD (the attack speed of your weapon).

Your DEF (defense) will lower the damage that your opponent's ATK (attack power) can deal.

Your ACC (accuracy) and DEX (dexterity) compared to your opponent's ones modify the probability of hits, misses and criticals.

if crit probability miss probability
    your ACC > 2 * opponent DEX    40%1%
your ACC > opponent DEX    15%5%
    your ACC < 2 * opponent DEX    1%40%
your ACC < opponent DEX    5%15%

Who drew all those armors and swords?!

All the armors and swords are procedurally generated.

There are 1000 different swords and 1000 different armors for each level from 1 to 99.
There are 1000000 different swords and 1000000 different armors of level 100.

I wrote a generator that can procedurally create more than 1'000'000'000 different armors or swords.

So the code I wrote will draw any sword and armor that you'll find in this game!

(all those images are not stored anywhere: the images you see are generated procedurally at runtime)
