What good Roguelikes work with Mac?
« on: January 26, 2012, 01:51:47 PM »
So while bored at school, I get a little tired of just poking around the net. So I was wondering what Roguelikes would be recommended for a Mac (which is the laptop I have to use at school).

I really need to get that bootcamp stuff going on my system. :p

Um, all of them really. Your bigger issue is finding something appropriate for a laptop. I'd probably recommend ToME4, since it has a very customizable UI, and is especially good if you use a USB mouse.

Well, I've found that a lot of them either don't have a Mac version, or ones that are supposedly universal seem to get glitchy.

Right now I have ADoM on my Mac. But honestly, after going through it time and time again, I'd enjoy a few other options. :)

There is Brogue.  It started as for mac and now can run on mac linux and windows.  It is also a fun game.

Zap'M is developed on Mac as far as I know. It has download for the platform but has not been touched for a while.

A variant "PRIME" exists and it should be compatible with Mac. In theory you need only to download sources, enter unpacked directory and type "make". No guarantees though. We would love to add Mac to supported platforms but getting one is a problem.

Other roguelikes available for Mac include: POWDER, LambdaRogue, Dungeon Crawl Stone Soup. GearHead 2 and others. Most Java based and Flash based games should run.
