Favorite "roguelike"

Postby Timedude » Wed Feb 29, 2012 2:52 pm

For once, it is good to be a mod in here.

You guys seem to post a lot about various "roguelikes", piched my interest as of late. Anybody have some outstanding recomendations? Free, paid, professional, hobby, good graphics, retro graphics, just bad graphics... Whatever you like. Love to hear some recomendations as to ones to try. RPG, shooter, heavy rogue elements, lightly inspired by, gimme whatever ya like.

Oh, one thing though: Must be for the Mac. (or iTouch)

GO!

Dungeons of Dredmor- gorgeous graphics, active developer support, $5 on Steam, with an expansion pack for $3. Works just dandy on the Mac, he even lets you command-click instead of control click, and I'm sure you know how much nicer that is.

SLASHEM(SuperLotsaAddedStuffHack-ExtendedMagic) and it's graphical version (Vulture's Claw?) are of course worth mentioning, as is Binding of Isaac, which is made by the folks at Newgrounds and is real time, IVAN would be great if the game wasn't quite so obstinate at not letting you win (literally the only way to win is to cheat),Unreal World is a survival-y one, and there's Cataclysm, which is great but getting it to run on the Mac is a massive pain in the ass. It's a zombie survival thing.


Roguelikes are the best games, in my opinion, especially the ones that break away from the typical ADOM/Rogue/Whatever formula and experiment with genres and graphics.

Found a Mac build of Spelunky, pretty cool, will have to give it a more extensive run later. :D

Just recently played DoomRL. My first experience with a roguelike.

I'm enjoy enjoying it.
