My favorite ASCII game ever is ASCII sector. A great space travel game about exploring a universe, selling, fighting and expanding your influence trough fighting and jobs while you buy better ships and weapons.

You start as a poor dot on a small planet and can start your journy immediately. On most planets is a market where you can buy and sell stuff. Some even have ship or weapon shops.

You can find jobs in Bars, but you need to complete a few low paying ones until you have enough respect to get better jobs.

It also is a perfect example how just a few colors and characters can make a perfect gaming scenery and a good gaming experience everall. It is not super pretty art, but very functional and nice to look at.

ASCII sector works on Linux, Mac OSX and Windows and is totally free.
