Key features:

Based on the OGL license If you've ever played any of the games released on the Open Game Licence, whether computer or tabletop, you will find many things familiar. Same if you played any AD&D-derived games (Baldur's Gate, Icewind Dale, Angband)...

Tiles The game uses freely available tiles which have been used in several Angband variants, so they are tried and proven.

Tooltips Don't know what that spell or ability or monster is? Just mouse over it. Lots of readily accessible info for the player.

Help Still stuck? Press F1 or H.

Turn-based You make your action and enemies take theirs.

Grid-based In true roguelike spirit.
