Far too many hours spent trying to rescue the Orb of Zot in Linley’s Crawl. And, yes, I save scummed like a fool to manage to beat the game. Tried to get ADOM working for me but never managed to have a very productive game after a certain point. I played a lot of variants over the years but ADOM and Crawl were the two I stuck with. Well, lots of Nethack as well but never managed to get the Amulet of Yendor out on that one. Very much like the genre of games but in some ways the randomness (in the case of ADOM) stymies a game as you are dependent on praying for chance items to appear or really going out of your way to be sure you can get them.
