What you really want is a game that stimulate the mind and will keep surprising you for a long time. It's been around about 40 years and is still maintained - last update was, if I recall correctly, Feb 2020.

What I am talking about (pushing) is the freeware open source: Dungeon Crawl[^] A descendant of Rogue, if that means anything to you.

Part of the entertainment value is the amazing richness of the thing. Although, when I played it as Rogue it only used ASCII chars, I recommend the tile version. It has a definitely learning curve and the only pattern I could say I've observed is what you do at any particular time is dependent upon the particular circumstances of that particular game. You can try to make the wisest choice but; well; you keep learning.

I've settle down to be a "Demonspawn Berserker", worshiper of Trog. I prefer to use axes . . .
