A downloadable game for Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux

Hellion is a game originally made in seven days for the 2015 7DRL Challenge (but with a couple of minor additions since then). It is a mash-up between traditional Roguelike gameplay elements and bullet-hell third-person rail shooters. Think 'What if Starfox was turn-based?' and you'll have the basic idea.

Version 1.1 is the latest version, with some extra stuff in it.

Version 1.0.1 is a post-challenge balance and bugfix release that has the same content as the original game but tweaks some parameters, fixes some issues and improves certain things based on some more rigorous playtesting. The original 7DRL version is left available for the curious.
