Current Version: 1.2

A MUD (Multi-User Dungeon) client that supports multiple sessions. This software is no longer under development, but source code is available.

User Reviews

"MUDDweller is fairly stable and works under OT most of the time (it takes a minute after a connection is closed before you can open another one). Nice macro capabilities that can be executed at login and logout, as well as assigned to any key. Doesn't have triggers or syntax coloring like TKView, but it also doesn't crash as much as TKView."
—Erich Bratton

"MUDDweller is the best client I've seen for M**'s that focus on Role-Playing, rather than hard-coded combat and what not. A clean interface, scrollback and type-back limited only by memory, a resizeable typing buffer... features go on and on. It even supports uploading of text files [and] operates as a slick telnet client; I use it to connect to my ISP's news server occasionally."
—Jeff Eaton

"With all the different and updated MU* programs available to the Mac, I still find myself going back to MUDDweller eventually! Why? It loads quick, it's easy to customize, and has proven itself to run in all MacOS's from 6.0 to 9.1! Who really needs the colored text at the expense of stability? I've had many programs crash on me, but MUDDweller, despite the latest version turning 10 years old next year, still remains a bastion of stability! This program is a must-have if you MU* a lot like I do; don't let the age of the program fool ya!"

Also, if you have an older Mac, be sure to check out the "Classic" applications page for more options.

Finally, take a look at ALEMIA if you think you know that name of an application, but aren't quite sure.

Of Note . . .

No, I don't accept reviews anymore for these older applications. With the creation of this page in the Orchard's late 2005 redesign, I only accept reviews for currently-developed applications that work on Mac OS X (or later....whatever that might be!!).
