I'll leave Hack (which NetHack on your list is derived from,) Larn, UltraLarn, Linley's Dungeon Crawl (which Dungeon Crawl Stone Soup on your list is derived from,) ZAngband (derived from Angband,) for you to find (as I don't want to vote for them so much) but you can see I'm correct so far...

Hi dchmelik. What's your favorite of all of the ascii rogue-like games?

It fluctuates between Rogue (which I still think would be easy to win) and Moria (which I can't win without cheating) or more complex derivatives like Angband, or (because of overworld maps) ZAngband, or (because it has Middle-earth) ToME. But I could boil that down to Rogue or (since they changed the name but built on the same code) Moria/Angband/ZAngband/ToME... I mean, the latter could've been the same game if the Moria maintainer decided to add that all (maybe not ZAngband but later different Angband variants had the overhead map, including maybe ones based on Arda.)

I like ToME. I also like the GUI one Nethack.

dchmelik,

ToME has been added. Note that if you search for "Tales of Middle-earth" that games does not come up in the early results, but another (definitely not open source one) does. Always helpful to include a link in the initial suggestion.

Okay, sorry it took a while to link.

The reason I finally asked with the full name of the game (then also the networked version) is that there are now two different games called ToME. They're by the same person, but DarkGod ended Tales of Middle-earth because he believed he might get sued, though never did (neither did the people making the source games of it, Moria and Angband, places on Middle-earth, for decades.) He renamed ToME Tales of Maj'Eyal.

I don't even consider Tales of Maj'Eyal roguelike, and don't like it. That's why my vote is specifically for Tales of Middle-earth (tome2) or TomeNET (the networked one is based on Middle-earth only.)

Below is what ToME used to mean.
  • ToME1: Troubles of Middle-earth
  • ToME2: Tales of Middle-earth
  • ToME3: experimental engine
  • ToME4: Tales of Maj'Eyal (not related to original)
However now DarkGod decreased the version numbering of v4 to v1, so it's now even more ambibuous what 'ToME' means

SuperTuxKart. They did a great job with 0.9.x version and there is a beta with network multiplayer.

I think Crawl-Tiles is also excellent - has ascii and GUI versions.

Brogue is another nice one.
not saying it's my favorite, though.
i'm also not sure how gameplay differs from rogue itself, but it looks amazing and is fun to play. prepare to die often.

Hi Jeremy. I did not ask it to be added - I was just conversing with dchmelik about rogue-like games. But I see no harm in it being added. To be honest, I can see loads of more open-source games that could make a future list.

Question

Hey Jeremy. Would you consider open-source games that work in Wine or do they have to be native open-source Linux games.

They should be native Linux games.
