I've only played a few rounds of this, but I quite enjoyed it, more so after switching to ASCII. I didn't mind the tiles too much (to be honest it's my first time playing a roguelike in tiles besides a sad attempt at ToME), but I couldn't seem do very well with them for some reason...

I suppose I should actually play Doom itself, too. I don't recall having ever played it.

Of course DoomRL is an ascii version of Doom.

Which means it's not a roguelike. It's doomlike.

Well played. I was going to reply with "Except it plays like Rogue instead of Doom, so it's a roguelike", but that's not what I originally said at all. The blame is mine entirely. Instead of saying "DoomRL is an ascii version of Doom" (which it is most certainly not) I should have said "DoomRL is a roguelike with all the context and flavor of Doom".

HOW NOW, BROWN COW?

Doom RL is pretty cool! I usually show it, along with Dungeon Crawl Stone Soup, to newbies to get them into roguelikes. Then I show them Dwarf Fortress  ;D

I laugh then show them Cardinal Quest then to Brogue.
