Nethack Review

Roguelikes are one of the most niche genres around. Who likes having to start over completely every time you mess up? However, it turns out that there is a very addicting gameplay loop in having to start over again and again, with only your skill carried over. It's incredibly satisfying to feel yourself getting smarter as you play, which lets you progress further. One of the best at this is Nethack.

To install Nethack, all you need to do is unzip its contents and run the executable and you're good to go. The first thing you'll notice about the game is that it has ASCII graphics. That automatically gives it a bit of a steeper learning curve than most games. The basic premise sounds simple 0 you want to enter the dungeons to get the Amulet of Yendor from the similarly named Wizard, and bring it back to your deity to ascend and bring it back to your deity.

There are thirteen starting roles to choose from, all fairly standard RPG characters ranging from archeologist to wizard. Each begins with their own somewhat randomized set of inventory, providing even more unpredictability to the game. The early game is easy, but it gets progressively more difficult. Every level is randomized too, giving you extra replayability.

All in all, if you want to experience one of the best roguelikes for completely free, then you should definitely give Nethack a download. It is one of the best free individual games you can download on the internet.
