Making the famous DOOM 3D shooting game into a RogueLike, turn-based RPG game with text "graphics" sounds like the recipe for disaster. But this RPG based on the original DOOM games (actually referred to as DRL, I suppose due to copyright concerns) actually plays very well. While more simplistic than games like Nethack or ADOM, DRL focuses more on combat (of course!) and weaponry, so it is faster paced than more traditional RogueLike games. Quite innovative and surprisingly good, a definite must-play for fans of the text-based RPG subgenre. (There are also more recent releases available for Windows, Linux, and OSX on the official site.)
