Surprisingly good! Playing nethack on my tablet is just as fun as playing on my computer! Before this app I hadn't yet had a good experience with a roguelike android port. Five stars if I could figure out how to put extended commands and ^d type commands on the command panels. Great work!
Praying with cursed items equipped. Its considered a minor problem, but with no other ailments besides a cursed item, praying seems to do nothing for cursed items. But besides that, I can't see anything wrong besides half my choices in game, great port.
Problems with controlled teleport I often tap the screen to move around, and this causes me to miss a lot of controlled teleports, wasting it and even making my character end up somewhere troublesome sometimes. MSGTYPE=stop doesn't seem to work for this port, so the implementation of any form of preventing this from happening would be most welcome, even if I have to set it in the configuration file myself. Thanks.
addictive. really sucks to die when you have a bag of holding and tons of holy water, magic marker... everything is going well... my Monk wished for the Eye of the Aethiopica... I knew there would be a painful flash, so I made sure to lock myself in a closet... but I failed to note that the flash also happens when you put it on! died right there in the closet. fun.
I won't lie, there are better versions of NetHack out there. However, after some shopping around, I've found this to be the best mobile version by far. If your phone has a keyboard, this works perfectly with that. If it doesn't, the game can take some getting used to. Moving around by tapping on the screen is an inexact science, and it really bothers me that the default user interface somehow doesn't have buttons for going up and down stairs, but I feel like this is the best job that could be done porting NetHack to a mobile device, and I really like the interface for building customized button layouts, so this is a very solid 4 out of 5 app. My only complaint is that I've had some frustrations with finding and modifying the defaults.nh file to suit my preferences.
Bug in high score list I like this app; it's pretty good, for a touch screen version. However, there is a rather annoying bug in the high score list, in which conditions such as "while praying" get appended to *every* entry on the list at the time, not just the one that just died. These build up on each entry, and really muck up the list.
Configurable status background opacity
Better handling of touch movements
Better handling of command sequences
Other minor bug fixes
