Title: Roguelikes with focus on ranged combat?
Post by: owen on March 30, 2016, 08:44:07 AM
Hello,

Are there some good roguelikes, preferably with a sci-fi theme, in which you shoot at your enemies rather than clubbing them to death? I've seen X@COM, but I was looking for something where you just control one character, not an entire squad.

DoomRL (http://doom.chaosforge.org/) seems like the obvious answer.

There's Cogmind (http://www.gridsagegames.com/cogmind/) by the same guy who made X@COM.

Infra Arcana and Slimy Lich Mummy are two very good roguelikes with a big focus on ranged combat as well. My favorites.
