Radiation is an long term effect or attack type present in some roguelikes. Its fantasy counterpart is magical contamination.

Games implementing radiation:

  • Xenocide: Radiation works like poison with the subtle difference high doses may cause mutations to appear. These are usually bad.
  • ZapM: Radiation has no effect until exposure reaches critical level. When this happens radiation sickness strikes and while it lasts hero will take constitution and strenght damage.
