Have some ASCII fun as LambdaRogue is now released

If you're one of those crazy people who likes playing with ASCII characters, this might be the game for you. Mario sends word that his rogue-like aptly titled "LambdaRogue" has reached release version. Here are the details:

LambdaRogue's feature set, esp. the number of different monsters and items, is rather small compared to many other roguelike games. However, all features are chosen in a "less is more" manner by me with clear concepts in mind.

Features of LambdaRogue 0.3.1 [I assume there's a bit more in the new 1.0 release version]
  • graphical SDL mode and text-based console mode
  • optional soundtrack
  • control by using keyboard (keys are configurable) or mouse
  • 3 difficulty levels
  • 2 alternate ways to win (with different endings)
  • 5 professions to choose from (Constructor, Enchanter, Thief, Ranger, Soldier)
  • 5 gods, inspired by greek mythology, to worship (Aphrodite, Apoll, Hermes, Dionysos, Ares)
  • 10 skills, abilities and talents to train
  • 4 character presets for an easier start for new players
  • 10 dungeon levels, all randomly generated when entered
  • wilderness
  • 20+ quests
  • 17 different standard monsters, many of them with special abilities
  • up to 7 unique monsters (depending on the selected difficulty level)
  • many carefully handcrafted items, among them are:
  • 43 different weapons (incl. some rare and 13 unique weapons)
  • 35 different armour, helmet and ring items (incl. many rare and 14 unique items)
  • 28 different potions (incl. many rare and 9 unique potions)
  • 21 different spells to learn (incl. some not so easy to be obtained)
... LambdaRogue is now considered "postcard ware" (yes, I know I've stolen this from ADOM). If you like the game or at least want me to continue developing it, send me a postcard. The address can be found in the ingame help files.​
You can see some screenshots and get more details from the game's website: http://lambdarogue.net/

Thanks Mario!
