, 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.

This project is also the descendant of an older game called Hack
. (and Hack
is actually based on another text game called Rogue!) Hack
was one of the first "dungeon" type games to use a graphical display instead of text based room descriptions - though it still used ascii characters to portray your environment. Only later on in the project "real" graphics were added (this was an open source game). Also, note that the release year supplied on this page is only the one for the most recent version.
