    Rogue Like Doom - What, uh?
    [​IMG]

    While PC homebrew has never been an important part of GBATemp, I thought that this project diserved a mention. Kornel Kisielweicz has scaled down the feel of Doom into a Rogue Like Dungeon Crawling action game. Featuring ASCII graphics that put me right back into my BBS Dial-up days, Doom music and sounds, and the ability to write Player-MODS for future releases. The controls are a bit complex, as they are layed out across the keyboard. So be sure to hit "?" when playing to see what is possible. Currently there are ports for the Windows PC and Linux environments.

    Is homebrew really the right word on a platform that is not as closed as a console, which the PC is?

    people who won't give this game a play are really showing their age. i can remember playing a baseball game that was all text and ascii characters. i don't appreciate it when a game is called "ugly" or "stupid" because it doesn't have 3d graphics. bottom line, this is a game, it has all the elements of a game, and it is fun.

    Pretty easy roguelike to get into. This was the first one I tried and it wasn't bad.
