Games like NetHack on Amiga?

I was wondering, are there any games like NetHack on the Amiga? Also I recently downloaded NetHack (it was on 3 disks) but it wasn't quite how I remembered it, the gfx seemed different somehow. Are there any other versions on the Amiga I`m not aware of?

I did a quick search on HOL but didn't come across anything too similar, perhaps there are some PD/Shareware ones floating about.

There is "Angband" I think. Look it on Aminet. Nethack and Angband are GNU-like, I think you will not find anything shareware or PD like NetHack.

Could you put that three disks in the Zone, please? Thanks.

NetHack is a very cool game.

Thanks for the suggestion, I`ll take a look at this Angband. Not sure about uploading the NetHack ADF's, would it be ok? Rules wise that is..

EDIT: I just had a look on Aminet with that search, lot's of similar games using that name variant, what's the best version for the m68k?

Loved playing "Dungeons of Moria" , also a "rogue" like game (like Nethack), played "Angband" also. The original is "Rogue" yes, but the successors are much more interesting to me.

There are Moria and Larn. I think older/other Moria/Larn ports are on the Fish disks. I didn't bother finding exactly which disks they're on though.

Thanks guys, I had no idea there were so many, I look forward to trying them out. Is there one more suited to run from a single disk? I can run them from the A1200 no problem, but the A600 takes up less space on my desk I love the atmosphere with these games!

There's also like six million different Angband "variants" (forks with their own different flavors.) Steamband is my current favorite, though that's not going to fit on a floppy. Not all of them have Amiga builds, but if you have a toolchain set up it should be possible to build them yourself.

Yes that's what I`m finding, so many choices..So far I`m really liking Moria and it fits onto a single disk quite easily. One small thing though, using the A600 I`m not able to use the numeric pad for movement, instead I`m using the number keys at the top. Dam you A600!

Hack Fish disk 62
Larn Fish disk 63
Moria Fish disk 194
HackLite v1 Fish disk 187
HackLite v2 Fish disk 799
HackLite v2.1 it seems a later version is also on Aminet
AmiOmega Fish disk 320, Fish disk 528 and latest(?) v1.61 "Omega is similar to hack or rogue, but is much more complex. There is a city, several towns, a wilderness, lots of dungeons, a multitude of monsters, lots of spells, magic items, etc. There are several quests to complete."
Omega another later/different version?

If you have trouble fitting everything on a single (bootable) floppy disk, look into using a compressor like Imploder to reduce the size of the program. And if compatibility with Kickstart 1.x doesn't matter, format the disk as FFS.

Wow that's quite a list, thanks Look's like I have my work cut out for me. AmiOmega sounds interesting, will have to give that a test run!

I love Immortal but it's not quite the minimalist vibe I`m looking for Falcon's Eye looks great though!

I can recommend PernAngband; also HackLite and Larn are rather good.
I had some compatibility issues getting recent versions of Omega to run...the old version (from Fish #320) works but is rather ugly.

I just found that great Amiga port, but did not make it very far...
Does someone still play that game?

Any tips or hints are welcome.

The gfx are way too sophisticated... ^^

BTW: Do you pay tourist prices if you play as a tourist in that game?

Thomas Biskup actually started working on ADOM again a year ago. Suprisingly Amiga binaries are also released for the new updates.

Its one of the more decent 1990's rogues
