Angband

Posted on Mar 8, 2003

Do you remember those character based games where you were an "@" symbol and you adventured around in dungeons whose walls were lines of "###"s? Do you lust after slaying the evil "s" (skeleton) lurking on the other side of the "+" (door)? Well, get ready to adventure! These types of games are all variants of the venerable NETHACK and you can find a Nethack that runs on nearly any operating system around (yes, even Amiga), but my personal favourite is ANGBAND, maybe because its loosely based on LOTR, but maybe because its the slickest one I've seen. Incredibly complex and just like the good old hack and slays of old, check this one out NOW.
