NetHack is a wonderfully silly, yet quite addictive, Dungeons &
Dragons-style adventure game. You play a character from one of many
classes (such as wizard, ranger, or tourist), fighting your way down to
retrieve the Amulet of Yendor (try saying THAT one backwards!) for your
god. On the way, you might encounter a quantum mechanic or two, or
perhaps King Arthur, or - if you're REALLY lucky - the Ravenous
Bugblatter Beast of Traal.
You should install a front-end for NetHack if you
wish to play the game.  Each of them includes the
original non-graphical version, and they can all be installed
at the same time:
- nethack-console: no graphics, just plain NetHack;
- nethack-x11    : original X11/Athena-based graphical version;
- nethack-qt     : Qt-based graphical version;
- nethack-lisp   : Lisp window version.
The various graphical front-ends for NetHack all share a large
number of files in common.  This package contains the graphics,
dungeon levels, and utilities common to all NetHack front-ends.
It also provides a few utilities such as recover, for retrieving
auto-save files in case of a power failure, and dgn_comp and
lev_comp, two utilities for making your own NetHack levels and
dungeons. The "recover" utility will be run every time the system
boots, if there are any auto-save files available.
