I made a very small basic roguelike, except that in it you control
the monsters instead of the hero. It uses curses so no worky in


I later modified this game to control the hero and sometimes to ask
you multiple-choice questions from biology and other fields of
and based on your right/wrong answer it either makes a Hit for your HP
or gives you a small reward. If there's interest i can post that
game too. Both are kind of buggy though.. -ak
