Shame on you. Shame on you for not telling me there was a whole string of rogue-ish games over at chaosforge.org, most with Linux versions and a couple with (gasp!) sound as well as color.
Doom, the Roguelike? Well darn. This could take up hours of my life, and dethrone Neverwinter Nights as my game of choice these days. Jokes aside, this is quite impressive. Cool soundtrack, reasonably fast action for a text-based game, plenty of in-game help and a cool dripping blood fade effect between levels. Just like the good old days.
I don’t know what luck I’ll have getting this one on the Pentium or even what performance will be like, so I might just skip it and stick with crawl at 120Mhz. On the other hand, nothing could be cooler than running a text-based Doom on a Pentium’s framebuffer, with the metal soundtrack, the growling and snarling, and. … 😈
P.S.: Yes, I am aware of the whole Quake-aalib phenomenon. 😉
