Rampant Games - Guest Post: The Roguelikes #2
The second part of Skavenhorde's articles on Roguelikes is up at Tales of the Rampant Coyote, discussing Angband and Nethack variants. A small sample:
TinyAngband: From the same author as XAngband. It’s just a shortened Angband. You only need to go down to level 27 and kill the big bad foozle. (Editor’s note: Only 27 now, is it? Piece of cake! Yeesh…)
MAngband: We have for your playing pleasure a multiplayer Angband. I mentioned in the beginning of these articles that I was somewhat new to the joy that are roguelikes, well what I never expected to find was that someone took one of these complex games online.
It’s real-time instead of turnbased and while on your adventure you can meet up with other players. Diablo 2 eat your heart out.
