The game is based on the works of J.R.R. Tolkien and was created as a continuation to Moria, one of the 'roguelike' genres forefathers. Its initial goal was to expand the story, add more enemies and objects, and ultimately create a more solid experience.
In Angband, players will have dozens of different possibilities when creating their character, a process that can carry on for longer than usual due to its complexity. Once you have the character, you'll encounter most of the usual standards of the genre.
An element that noticeably differentiates Angband from most of the genres’ alternatives is that it allows you to, with a simple click, change the game's graphics. In fact, you will have several different 'tilesets' at your disposal to use the one that best suits your tastes.
Angband is one of the best 'roguelike' games out there. It’s not only a very solid and attractive experience, but is also more accessible than most thanks to its different interface features and graphics.
