Excellent, very complicated roguelike game with impossibly deep world. Has a problematic controls that require some time to accustom, yet after some time, one will have no problem with controlling all dwarves.

Of course, you don't need to play in ASCII, there are many neat graphic packages that make game a little less raw.

Game has both - strategy and ADOM-like roguelike mode, so anyone will have what likes.

And for final, a quote about gameplay...
"I caught a vampire too. A fisher-dwarf accused the expedition leader, who I knew was innocent of course. So I had my sheriff drag the fisher-dwarf to the dungeon. I had no hammer, so he had to wait to be executed while we forged one. After 50 hammer strikes I knew I was right, because he lived."

Great depth and concept, but poor UI and graphics makes it a chore to play.

good, but sound doesn't work on linux 64
