DoomRL - Doom the Rogue Like

Look at that screenshot. It's the marine (you) with a shotgun against a former human. That is DoomRL or Doom the Rogue Like. I love this game, I've been playing this non-stop when I have free time. I still can't finish the darn thing because I find it difficult, but I still slug on and delve deeper to get out of the demon infested base.

Some of the features:

1. Original Doom II music and sound effects.

2. Fallout-ish perks at every level up.

3. Turn based gameplay presented in an action packed way.

4. Text mode only! (Yes this is a feature.)

5. Very fun too play. (This is also a feature.)

I have to say that this is the first rogue like that really got me interested in the genre. I know, it's pathetic, but hey, better late than never, right?

The farthest I got here, I think is level 7 after the Hell Arena. I got killed by 3 imps with plasma blasters. I'm not sure if the imps had blasters, it could be just radioactive vomit. I can't tell from the graphics, sorry.
