A classic dungeon crawler. Unlike other games the emphasis in NetHack is on discovering the detail of the dungeon and not simply killing everything in sight – in fact, killing everything in sight is a good way to die quickly.
NetHack is a very deep and very fun game but also very, very challengingInstuctions:
Use the keyboard for everything.
Use shift+? for in game help
You can use the number pad or hjkl keys for movement.
NetHack is a big game so it will take some getting used to.
