Save keeps corrupting It's great except multiple times now on my note 3 my Sil save has been corrupted, it says bad player position, 0,0, and starts a new game. Basically impossible to play this way. Reproduced it by minimizing the game while in the menu screen (after save and quit). The game tries to autosave when in the menu and it corrupts the game save I believe. Basically, never exit out of your character.
Wonderful! Nice, especially since the original TOME is hard to find on the PC. And, of course, the other variants are also great: Sil, SAngband, Steamband, and NPPAngband are all incredible variants. Still, this is the Android Operating System were talking about. Playing this on a phone is awkward as hell, even with a physical slide out keyboard. This will be best enjoyed on a tablet, though it's still on a despite the awkwardness.
Desperately needs an update for the ui Love the idea of playing some of these games on my phone, but the ui is pretty bad. Touch directionals aren't very responsive and would prefer to use my own keyboard instead of the built in one. Or make a scrolling keyboard like the great nethack and unnethack ports on the market.
Pros: This seems to be the only app on the market that offers Sil, so there's that. Also it does indeed play as a near perfect replica of Sil 1.1.1. I haven't tested the other variants, but I'm happy with what I've seen Cons: Sil has a critical save bug. You can reproduce it by saving your character and quitting to the main menu, then simply minimizing or switching apps. The next time you try to load your character, it says invalid location and gets corrupted. If you use the quit command from the main menu (even though it doesn't actually shut the app down), or minimize/switch while you're in game, it will load back. I think it's auto overwriting the save with bad data if you switch from the main menu. Also, it would be cool if Sil was updated to 1.3.
As good as it gets.. Great to have all these games on mobile! The controls are obviously not great but I would love to the see mouse support in nppangband as touch support. Also tiles would awesome. I love that they are adding games like Sil but some improvements on interface and control would be amazing!
Great games Faithful ports of the desktop games onto Android. I really enjoyed Steamband and ToME; they and Hengband are my favorite variants of Angband. The screen is a little cramped (playing on a Samsung Galaxy S5) but it is still fairly playable.
Bug fixes. Added NPP Angband and Sil.
