But stand out, not fit in, say the wrong thing, and the punishment was swift, sure, and horrible. You were cast into Exile, a huge series of caverns far below the surface of the earth, there to live out the rest of your days in misery.


Now, at last, an escape route from your underground prison has been found. You are the brave soul chosen to lead the first expedition to the surface. You hope to find a way for your people to return to the light of the sun. Instead, you find a ravaged world, rapidly being devoured by mysterious plagues of monsters. You will have to act quickly. If not, the underworld will be the only place left where humans can live.

Description:NetHack is one of the oldest computer role-playing games still played and developed. The latest version of the game, NetHack 3.4.0, was released in March 2002.

Some players may dislike the game's character-based graphics. Newer versions of NetHack feature tile-based, somewhat prettier graphics, but I decided to go even further. Thus, I decided to create a new, graphics-intensive look for NetHack.

Falcon's Eye is a mouse-driven interface for NetHack that enhances the visuals, audio and accessibility of the game, yet retains all the original gameplay and game features

Description: NetHack is a single player dungeon exploration game that runs on a wide variety of computer systems, with a variety of graphical and text interfaces all using the same game engine. Unlike many other Dungeons & Dragons-inspired games, the emphasis in NetHack is on discovering the detail of the dungeon and not simply killing everything in sight - in fact, killing everything in sight is a good way to die quickly. Each game presents a different landscape - the random number generator provides an essentially unlimited number of variations of the dungeon and its denizens to be discovered by the player in one of a number of characters: you can pick your race, your role, and your gender.

Description: Neverwinter Nights (NWN) is a computer game set in a huge medieval fantasy world of Dungeons and Dragons. This role-playing game (RPG) puts you at the center of an epic tale of faith, war, and betrayal.


As a player, you are able to choose what skills and abilities you will develop as you voyage though the complex and dangerous fantasy world of Forgotten Realms. Be a deadly and dangerous Rogue moving through the shadows using stealth and secrecy, be a scholarly Wizard and wield powerful magic against your enemies, be a hulking Barbarian whose lust for battle is matched only by his terrible rage, be an armor-clad Paladin who protects the innocent and vanquishes his foes, be a crusading Cleric who heals the sick and defends the helpless… be all this and more.


Neverwinter Nights allows you to create your own worlds. This revolutionary game will come with all the tools needed to construct your own unique lands of adventure. The Neverwinter Nights Aurora Toolset allows even novice users to construct everything from a quiet, misty forest or a dripping cavern of foul evil, to a king’s court. All the monsters, items, set pieces and settings are there for world builders to use. But do not stop there; construct traps, encounters, custom monsters and magic items to make your adventure unique.


But the Neverwinter experience is not just for one person- adventure with all your friends. Neverwinter Nights can be played online with up to 64 friends, all sharing in the adventure. You can organize and run your own adventures through the role of the Dungeon Master and control all the monsters, creatures and characters your friends meet as they journey on their quest. A powerful piece of software that is included with Neverwinter Nights, the DM Client, allows nearly unlimited control for running your own adventures for your friends.


Neverwinter Nights…endless adventure!

Notes: Includes compiled SDL libaries as well as sound libaries

Sword of Fargoal


Category: RPG/Dungeon Crawling

Homepage: Sword Of Fargoal

License: GPL

Latest Version:-

Screenshots: Screenshot

Platform: Linux # Mac # Windows.

Hardware Requirement: -

Additional System Requirements: Allegro

Singleplayer: Yes.

Multiplayer: No.

Demo: Freeware.

Description: You are on a quest to retrieve the Sword of Fargoal, which lies between

levels 15 and 20 of a dungeon. The dungeon levels are populated by an

ever-regrowing number of different monsters, the deeper the dungeon level,

the stronger the monsters. By retrieving experience points and collecting

treasures, your own strength will increase as well, while finding your way

down through randomly generated dungeons. With the help of different items

and all sorts of spells, and by escaping various kinds of traps, you

finally can find the Sword of Fargoal in the middle of a labyrinth - which

doesn't mean your done, no way, now the game only really begins. A timer

is started, and you have to get back up to the dungeon entrance again

before time runs out. This isn't as easy as it sounds, because dungeon

levels are newly created and look different every time you climb up or

down, and are now full of monsters waiting to steal the sword from you -

in which case you have to climb down and find it again - but the timer

isn't reset.

Notes: -

Reviews: Sword Of Fargoal is rewareded to be one of the 150 best games ever!
