Description:
console mode dungeon exploration game Nethack is a single-user, fantasy role-playing computer game, a direct descendant of the games Hack and Rogue. Nethack is a -very- complex game, compared to ones such as Moria, Rogue, or Angband. There are several different character classes, a larger variety of items (from keys to artifacts), a leaner, meaner collection of monsters, and several quests that a player must finish before winning the game. There are also many new dungeon features as well as interesting and quite amusing things that a player can do.

Much of the Dungeons of Doom within Nethack is borrowed from several fantasy genres, including Tolkien's Middle Earth, King Aurthor, and Dungeons and Dragons, as well as a few small references to Star Trek, Doctor Who, and the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy.
