Angband is a free, single-player graphical dungeon exploration
game that uses ASCII characters where you take the role of an
adventurer, exploring a deep dungeon, fighting monsters, and acquiring
the best weaponry you can, in preparation for a final battle with
Morgoth, the Lord of Darkness.
Angband is along the lines of Rogue and NetHack. It is derived from
the games Moria and Umoria, which were in turn based on Rogue.
It is often described as a "roguelike" game because the look
and feel of the game is still quite similar to Rogue. Many of
these new creatures and objects are drawn from the writings of
J.R.R Tolkien, although some of the monsters come straight from
classical mythology, Dungeons & Dragons, Rolemaster, or
the minds of the orginal Angband coders.
