Firstly, Crawl is a local multiplayer dungeon-crawler game, in other words, you and up to 3 more friends are able to connect and play at the same time and at the same computer!
The idea is straight forward: one of the players controls 'the Hero', who must explore a randomly generated dungeon full of traps and monsters. The evil creatures will be controled by the other players, and the one who defeats he hero shall take his place. In the end of the round it's all against one. The hero must use his skills, experience and items gathered through the dungeon to defeat a hulking final boss controled collectively by the other players.
Crawl has very interesting art style and mechanics wich reminds us of those classic beat-em-up meeting old school RPG's and arcades. It's garanteed fun for you and your nostalgic buddies.
