Tower of Darkness
ToD is more or less a typical Roguelike game, but one that is done very well with a plethora of skills and races to choose from. Since it is only a 10-level dungeon, monsters and magic are far more plentiful than in Natuk. If you have played any earlier Tom Proudfoot game, you'll feel right at home with ToD. Read our reviews of both Natuk and Nahlakh on this site for more information on gameplay mechanics. ToD is essentially "more of everything" compared to these games: more spells, more monster types, more skills, and new NPCs who can join your quest. The game is not officially finished, but this test version (version 10) is more or less complete; besides, the game generates a new random dungeon every time you play, making it highly replayable. The game is harder than an average Roguelike, though, so if you are new to this genre you might find it frustrating. Die-hard Roguelike fans will likely have a lot of fun with this excellent title which benefits from the author's extensive D&D experience and a well-crafted combat system. Highly recommended.
