Goblin Hack – smooth-scrolling ASCII graphics adventure game

Goblin Hack is an open source roguelike OpenGL-based smooth-scrolling ASCII graphics game. The game is inspired by the likes of NetHack, but faster with fewer keys.

Goblin Hack has a simple interface that appears to appeal to players of all ages, and fires their imagination in today’s world of over-rendered games.

Players can choose one of several classes before being thrown into the first floor of a randomized, ongoing dungeon.

Features include:

  • Choose one of several classes before being thrown into the first floor of a randomized, ongoing dungeon.
  • Manually save the game.
