In college I played Nethack. Then I moved to Moria. Now I stick to playing Angband.
Phage is Hard
Okay another round of 7DRL games were tried. Started with Edwin's 7DRL. What a name. It did not run in Internet Explorer. Tried Firefox. Unity web browser started up. Eventually Firefox says, "Web audio API is not supported in this browser". I had to stop some script that was taking a long time to load. Never got the game to start.
Then I tried NoirRL. You play a detective who must raise cash for his brother's ransom. In this game you must explicitly open doors to get through them. I climbed the stairs up to New York city. You see what you have explored. Turns out the level extends to the end of the screen and no more. Therefore there is no scrolling. Unfortunately I could not figure out what to do in this game.
Finally I played Phage. An MSDOS style window stays open while the game runs. The font is small. But the graphics are cool. Unfortunately the game is way too hard. I died in my first battle each time I played. Then the monsters run around while I am dead. This could have been a great game with a little more balance.
