A variant of Angband, Ingband (written by Robert Shiells) is short for "Ironman Angband". The gameplay is much the same as the original, except that the use of up-stairs, Word of Recall, level teleport, and shops is forbidden, thus enhancing the game's challenge. These handicaps also make it difficult to win and tend to shorten playing time, thus making it an ideal time suck.
