A band of *bandsThe classic *band.Angband 3.0.6 (rebuilt with new tileset and SDL sound support)
-- Angband is a freeware computer dungeon exploration game based (loosely) on the books of J.R.R.Tolkien. You explore a very deep dungeon, kill monsters, try to equip yourself with the best weapons and armor you can find, and finally face Morgoth - "The Dark Enemy".
-- The origin of the "V" variants, a.k.a. the "*bands".
-- Developers' pages: http://www.thangorodrim.net/ http://angband.oook.cz/index.php http://groups.google.com/group/rec.games.r....angband/topics

-- Based on re-Tolkienised Zangband 2.6.2. It features a new magic system, a player settable difficulty option.
-- Homepage: http://myweb.tiscali.co.uk/frazband/
-- Note: The developer says on his website that the current source would support the 8x8 tileset. I've included Zangband's 16x16 tileset anyway, and it seems to load well.Click to view attachment Click to view attachmentClick to view attachmentThe quick *band~Quickband 1.0.5
-- Quickband is a variant of Angband (via a popular variant called NPPband). As the name suggests, it's a truly "quicker" Angband.
-- The aim of Quickband is to descend to the 12th level of the dungeon and slay the evil wizard Saruman of Many Colors. Quickband is intended to be much quicker to complete than regular Angband (which has 100 dungeon levels). In fact you should be able to play a full game in just a few hours.

... Hey, wait! Where is Zangband
Yes, it's been around for quite a while: http://www.oesf.org/forums/index.php?showtopic=17293The hard *band!Entroband 1.7.1
-- New variant based upon Hengband 1.7.0
-- This variant is intended to be difficult, yet rewarding for characters of all levels. The developer hopes to get rid of some of the chaff and cruft from hengband, and still maintain a disordered and uncertain experience.

("Many monsters made more challenging. Many artifacts changed. Many weak monsters and artifacts removed. New, powerful, artifacts and uniques. New monster descriptions where many old ones were missing. Cheesy tactics slowly being plugged.")Click to view attachmentClick to view attachmentThe *band to hell...Hellband 0.8.4

All the *bands here require ncurses
All the ports are built with cpu optimization (-O2 -mcpu=xscale -mtune=xscale).
Of course, there are still lots of *bands around waiting to fight Zaurus - the great mind-opening, eye-catching, breath-taking beast ...
