DoomRL is a Rouge-Like game developed by Kornel Kisielewicz and developed in the language freepascal (which is surprising, since pascal isn't typically a widely used language other than for teaching); and obviously is set within the DOOM universe.
DoomRL plays much like other ASCII roguelikes, being turn-based, having charcter levels & classes (character levels in Doom, what insanity is this ), tonnes of weapons and... well you get the picture. Unlike most other rogue-likes however, being successful at DoomRL is more skill-based than luck, if you know how to exploit the enemy AI and know some good tactics, such as corner-shooting. It is a pretty fast-paced rouge-like, being designed around trying to be a coffee-break rouge-like; however that doesn't mean it isn't deep, it is actually quite deep for being a rouge-like based off of Doom .
I know, my description about the game sucked, but if you like faster paced rogue-likes, DoomRL might be a nice pick.
And here's some screenshots, both ASCII and the recent tile-graphics, of DoomRL (not my screenshots of course ):
... darn it can't grab them off the official site, oh well I'll just post the link. http://doom.chaosforge.org/screenshots
And of course here's the link to the game itself: http://doom.chaosforge.org/
Note: If you work out how to pick up the Dragonslayer, DON'T TELL US! I want to work it out for myself, and for the others... well let's just say giving them the means to wield the most powerful weapon in the game (should they find it) might not be a good idea, or fair >.<.
