This is a classic rouge-like game from watabou. It has standard 8-bit style graphics and keeps a tally of where each character played gets up to, as well has having some achievements to unlock, such as collecting gold, or dying by fire or poison.
Overall it’s a very nicely made game. The graphics are nice and clean, not overly blocky. It retains some features of Nethack like the scrolls and potions changing all the time, while introducing new features like finding seeds and hit point bubbles in long grass. The monsters are fairly well balanced, just don’t ever make the mistake of disturbing a grave! I very much enjoyed it, even though I’m not very good at it. It’s good fun, if very frustrating.
This gets a solid Dru points.
