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.
Unplayable maps I've played numerous versions of Nethack over the years. My first computer, back around 89, came with a version installed. This, however, is the first time I've been unable to get past the first level, for a lack of doors. Everything is a dead end. Maybe I'm missing something, but I never had this issue with any of the other versions I've played.
Elf Wizard This is da 5 star game. The very best mobile game available. Nethack combines deeply challenging gameplay with random dungeon and character generation. Easy to fall in love with but will break your heart time and time again. See you in Sokoban!
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.
Best Nethack Port! Tons better than the iOS version and using the newest vanilla build. I do miss the "original" 32x32 typeset I've used for over half my life, but the Nevanda ones are growing in me. Best game for the price!!!
Configurable status background opacity
Better handling of touch movements
