       angband [options] [-- suboptions]


       This  manual  page  explains the Debian package angband .  Angband is a
       single-player,  graphical  dungeon   adventure   game   using   textual
       characters  to  represent  the  walls  and  floors of a dungeon and the
       inhabitants therein, in the vein of rogue, hack,  nethack,  and  moria.
       Angband  2.8.3  is  a  stable  official  release  incorporating all the
       changes and improvements  added  since  the  last  official  release  (
       Angband 2.7.8).

       This  version  of Angband has been compiled with both ncurses and the X
       Windowing system.  and hence can be played on a virtual console as well
       as under X.  In the latter case, the game pulls up multiple windows.

       file  with  the  file name /var/games/angband/save/<UID>Test.  The best
       place to get help is the program itself; help is reached by the command
