Description (by MrFlibble)

Take on the role of a brave adventurer who must travel deep into the dungeons to recover the fabled Amulet of Yendor.

NetHack is a role-playing dungeon exploration game similar to Rogue, with a multitude of playable classes, weapons, spells, items and monsters. As in any roguelike game, the levels are generated randomly each time NetHack is played.
