anybody remember Dungeon of Doom for mac?
« on: March 22, 2013, 09:16:44 PM »
I thought my first Roguelike was an Angband variant when I was in college (MacAngband) but I got to thinking about it and remembered a shareware game for the Mac called "Dungeon of Doom" (ca. 1987).  It was graphical but definitely a roguelike with all of the standard features: random dungeons, shuffled potion names + scroll names, need to identify bonuses or curses on weapons/armor, etc.

Well I finally got it up and running on an old mac emulator (an emulator of old macs, I mean) and played it again for the first time in... 25 years?

The graphics are lame, the dungeons are not very well-designed (basically wide, twisty hallways instead of rooms), and the feature set is limited.  Still, it's fun to revisit the memory.

I remember it well - played it as a little kid, when Apple products were awkward and beige. It was at a friend's house, and I'd try to get him interested in playing it. Probably my first roguelike, in fact!
