Gtk2Hack is a graphical frontend for the popular rogue-like role playing game nethack.
Version: 0.5.7Gtk2Hack is a nice graphical frontend (window port in nethack terminology) for the popular rogue-like role playing game nethack using the modern GTK2 toolkit. It aims to provide an improved visual interface while maintaining complete keyboard controllability.
Operating System: Linux
Gtk2Hack is inspired by the Qt and Gnome window ports but was rewritten from scratch. It currently uses the X11 16x16 tileset and scaled versions of the Qt/Gnome icons. I hope to support other tilesets in the future.
Personally, I would prefer a new and original 24x24 tileset to provide a nicer look while showing a large part of the map. It would be nice to feature original and prettier icons and a cool picture for the about dialog/splash screen.
