A text-based roguelike game based on the original Larn. Travel through dungeons collecting weapons, killing monsters, in order to find and sell the Eye of Larn to save your sick daughter before your time runs out. Ularn is easier to finish than nethack and rogue, but offers multiple skill levels. Once you finish the game at level 1, the next time you start at level 2. Additionally, the game charges you tax on any gold that you have when you win the game, starting you off at a disadvantage the next time you play.
