You play an adventurer, exploring levels, fighting monsters, and collecting items. The goal is to collect the eight pearls of wisdom, each one guarded by a monster deep in a dungeon.


  • Five character classes.
  • You can have a pet, and either control it yourself, or let the computer auto-play it.
  • Smart pickup and optimization of equipment.
  • Socketed items allow you to customize your weapons and armor.
  • Ranged weapons and spells.
  • Running.
  • Stores (but they don't buy items, so you don't need to worry about keeping useless items for gold).
  • Variety of level styles using different procedural generation algorithms.
  • World layout and levels are different every game, but there are fixed bosses and artifacts.
  • No permadeath; games are saved when resting in an inn.
  • Graphical interface, can be resized and use different fonts.
  • Keyboard control only. Keyset inspired by Angband, but simplified.
  • In-game help.
