Dungeon Crawl: Stone Soup is a free roguelike. If you've played NetHack, or even regular Hack, you know basically what it's about.
It's pretty fun, you should give it a shot. Get ready to die. A lot.

Things you need to know:
1. you have to eat. collect food but only eat it when you really have to. All the other times, you can eat bodies. If you are not a flesh-eater, you cannot eat raw meat unless you are Hungry. While standing over a body, press c (this game is case-sensitive) to chop it into bite-size bits.
2. caster classes are for experienced crawlers only. Until you really understand how to use it effectively, you'll just give yourself headaches trying.
3. On Identifying: [THIS ONE IS IMPORTANT] when you make a character, the game randomizes potions and scrolls. To identify them, you just gotta drink potions and read scrolls. sometimes bad shit happens, it's part of crawl. Eventually you learn how to do this better.
there are race/class combos that are easier than others in the first floors. try out one of these first:
Minotaur Fighter/Gladiator: melee class, strong, gets a horn attack.
Mountain Dwarf Fighter/Paladin: good HP, good with weapons.
Troll Berserker: Rages (+str +speed), can eat raw and rotting flesh, doesn't have to be hungry to eat meat. gets hungrier faster. stockpile food. good unarmed attacks.
Spriggan Stalker: Doesn't eat much, high dex gives you lots of attacks and evasion.
something to try out:
Mummy Necromancer/Wizard: very weak but does not need to eat, meaning you can sit on the 1st level and kill monsters until you get to level 5
