It’s been a long time, as usual :)
Well, after a quarter of century, I’m proud to announce a brand new incarnation of Sword of Fargoal.
Thanks go to Jonathan Buchanan for porting POWDER to the Wii! Whee!
Now you can start a new player with preset super-powers (just for fun). Includes “Predator”, “Alien”, “Hulk” and “Nightcrawler”
What makes this game special is its depth and the sheer amount of maps to explore: The world is vast (multiple continents, over 4000 manually designed maps, hundreds of monsters and countless variations of generated content) and complex (16 unique races, 17 classes, 40 skills and hundreds of spells to choose from and combine with each other), so there is a lot to explore.
Your goal is to travel to the 26th subterranean floor of the dungeon, retrieve the Amulet of Yendor and return with it to the surface. For the truly skillful who desire further challenge, depths below 26 each contain three lumenstones — items which confer no benefit except an increased score upon victory.
NLarn tries to maintain the atmosphere and story of the original game while improving the gameplay by using state-of-the-art roguelike technology and a simplified user interface.
Specifically, this version can now run on 64-bit Windows 7!
XONG is pronounced “zong” and programmed entirely in Common Lisp.
In true Dungeon Crawl fashion, the focus of the game is on defeating large numbers of hostile fleets and gathering vast amounts of wealth and loot, without any complex storyline or multiple quests getting in the way of the fighting
Don’t think it doesn’t worth upgrading because 1.4.2 is only one month old.
