Cat-and-the-Hack Angband


Cat-and-the-Hack Angband is a variant of the old yet still popular and actively maintained roguelike game Angband.

CatH-Angband was started in 1997 as an attempt to balance out the classes a bit, make certain classes fit their idioms a bit better, and tweak the user interface to make life a little bit easier.

CatH was updated to the Angband 2.9.1 codebase in 2000. Three new races were added, a few tweaks were made, and a few items were invented. But after a few updates, CatH once again fell dormant.

CatH soon fell to the wayside as Angband turned 3.0 and gained many improvements, including a few CatH already had. The original maintainer, neko, didn't feel like updating CatH to version 3. Then one day, I decided I'd step in and do all the grunt work.


CatH-Angband 3.0.3 is brought to you by Evan Jenkins. CatH was originally brought to you by neko, who will hopefully still stay active in updating the variant. And in the words of neko...

"Thanks to all the Angband maintainers from Robert to Robert, Greg Wolledge for the ideas I took from GW-Angband, SourceForge for the web space, the evil beasts which populate rgra and #angband, and you for actually noticing this page, let alone CatH itself :)"
