This is the GEM based version of the popular Unix based Dungeons and Dragons type game of the same name. Although it will run on any ST, STE, TT or Falcon with any TV or monitor, it is really designed for 16 colour, 80 column, VGA on the Falcon or TT medium res. The game has a similar feel to the old Gauntlet and Rogue games, although its origins go further back. Wander around, collect objects and potions, cast spells, destroy or avoid nasties and progress from one dungeon to the next. Hardened Nethack players will be glad to know that all the old keyboard commands are still supported as well as the old file format, so you can load in your saved games. If you're into these type of games, Nethack GEM is the best there is. Requires at least 2 Meg of memory. A hard drive is highly recommended but not essential.
