If there is one game that professional developers and publishers hate, it's Ancient Domains of Mystery (ADOM). The final version (1.0) released in late 2002, this freeware role-playing game that fits on a single floppy offers an unprecedented depth of character development and a length of gameplay that easily matches the longest games ever released. In fact, ADOM offers more replay value than any game released in the 21st Century, and unlike many of those games, it remains fun no matter how often you replay it.

ADOM ist wirklich eines der besten Spiele, die ich je gespielt habe. Auch wenn ich mich manchmal selbst darüber wundere, aber die Spieltiefe ist unglaublich.
Es ist sicher frustrierend, wenn man tagelang seinen Charakter auflevelt und er dann stirbt - und nichts von ihm übrig bleibt, ausser einer Erinnerung. Aber : das macht auch einen gewissen Reiz aus, und ist eben sehr realistisch.

Auf jeden Fall ein Geheimtipp !

Unfortunately, not even our reviews can be timeless on all accounts. NetDanzr, in his review of ADOM praised the continuous improvement over the years which lead to an amazing depth, but he critisized accessibility issues due to visual presentation and complex controls. It was good timing for a snapshot, because shortly afterwards, development (which had been going on for 8 years before) actually ceased. So his views remained valid for a long time.

Now you see the violence inherent in the system!

Never played or knew it, but i'm sure it's worth a look since you guys say so much about it :)
Cheer up! Remember the less you have, the more there is to get.
