What do you guys think of the new NetHack? I like it. #tip command is cool, as is climbing out of pits with <. Sucks that they removed polypiling and nerfed Elbereth, though.
It's great that when
pets eat mimicsthey mimic tripe rations, implying that anything that eats a mimic corpse mimics whatever is most valuable to them, so you mimic gold when you eat mimic meat because you're a greedy murderhobo.
A popular and influential Roguelike. So called because it's an expansion of an (even) older game called Hack and because its development was coordinated over Usenet back in the day. Last month it got its first new version in over 10 years.
I don't have it on my hard drive right now, but I used to have a reaction image from NetHack that I made by throwing a rock upward as an archaeologist,
producing the message, "Your fedora does not protect you."It's one of my favorite reaction images ever.
Written-in-the-dust Elbereth degrades much more quickly now. I don't think I've even been able to scare off more than one creature at a time with it. Elbereth can no longer have trailing characters -- if you want to put multiple Elbereths on a single square, you need to put spaces between them. Monsters also only ever respect Elbereth if you are standing on the square, so you can't use it to make a tamper-proof stash anymore. Otherwise it's pretty much the same.
There's skins available
i like it a lot, i just really wish all the dungeons weren't so big. you almost have to use o to autosearch the dungeon and at that point its just an ascii movie. but i like the combat
