Right now, Frog and Compos are both simply the best available by a huge amount.

But when I first started playing such games, Furyband was the best by an equally huge amount. The GUI is pretty bad for today, but what other variant can you play as a Lygrog without any melee attack and become all but invulnerable if you lived long enough?

How about playing as a Jedi? (With Lightsabers too.)

Furyband was not the first with Monster races to play, but it was the first with so many to choose from. It had a deity system that no game I am aware of ever came close to. (With multiple gods you can choose from that reacted differently to many things.)

And while not based on Angband, I really should mention how absolutely great Nethack is. And if you played Nethack and liked it, there is always "Slash'Em Extended". It has thousands of race and class combinations and is literally the hardest game imaginable. (If you doubt this, please try it.)

(The changelog for the current version is 1022 lines long. See for yourself.)

Be fairly warned. AmyBSOD (The maintainer of Slash'Em Extended.) Is clearly a sadist and enjoys making players suffer in the most aggravating ways imaginable. (She is actually very nice and easy to talk to. But the game is not even remotely fair.)

Good day everyone.

Not bad for an April Fool's joke. I still occasionally go back and play it for awhile.
“We're more of the love, blood, and rhetoric school. Well, we can do you blood and love without the rhetoric, and we can do you blood and rhetoric without the love, and we can do you all three concurrent or consecutive. But we can't give you love and rhetoric without the blood. Blood is compulsory. They're all blood, you see.”
