DoomRL

DoomRL

DoomRL (Doom, the Roguelike) is a fast and furious coffee-break Roguelike game, that is heavily inspired by the popular first person shooter game Doom developed by ID Software.

DoomRL is turn-based, offers a top-down interface formed entirely of ASCII characters, and features a character leveling system with traits.

In this game, you are the sole surviving marine from a squad sent to investigate a distress call from the moonbase of Phobos. It turns out that all hell has broken loose on the plant... literally. Your quest in DoomRL is to descend into the moonbase complex, find the source of this evil outbreak, and destroy it at all costs.

DoomRL is intended to be simple and easy to get into. There is a limited inventory, maps of the size of one screen, and one item per tile.
