In Nethack 3.0, the player chooses of one the available classes (warrior, cleric, tourist, wizard, etc.) and journeys into the Dungeons of Doom searching for the Amulet of Yendor for the god you worship (different for each class).

The game is a turn-based, role-playing game using a top-down perspective. Each game creates a randomly generated dungeon - secret doors, monsters and treasure are waiting in different places. There are many magical artifacts inside the dungeons, each with its own secret powers.
