Halls of Darkness is a cross platform roguelike game

Halls of Darkness is a roguelike game for Mac or Linux/Unix or Windows systems

Nyctos: Halls of Darkness is a claustrophobic hack-and-slash through a nightmare dungeon ruled by a dark force. The game is written in Python using Parole, a roguelike game engine under development by the same authors.  The game revolves heavily around tactical situations related to light. Version 1.0.0 was written for the 2009 Seven Day Roguelike Challenge, and was finished at 1:40 pm, March 14th, 2009, 7 days after starting (including an extra clock-hour for daylight savings time).
The game is still in the early stages of development, and is probably too hard or too easy and unbalanced. It is at least possible to win, though. We are continuing to expand it into a larger game. Unimplemented features to come: weapon brands, weapon materials, item construction modifiers, skills.
The downloads include a manual, but you can also find the most current version here: Manual.
The current version is 1.0.1, a bug-fix and polish release with gameplay essentially similar to that of the original 7DRL release. Released March 23, 2009.
Note: The original source distribution for 1.0.1 has been deprecated and replaced by nyctos-1.0.1-src-a.tar.gz, which includes the source for the engine that Nyctos is built on. As a result, it should run "out of the box", assuming you have python 2.5-2.7, pygame, and (optionally) psyco installed. Downloads
