Roguelikes with focus on ranged combat?
« 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 seems like the obvious answer.

There's 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.
