Anyone else play them? I've been addicted to DoomRL lately. Anyone know of any others that are good?
Are there any good roguelikes for Android/iOS?
I believe you can just play Nethack on Android, but otherwise no, I've not found any original roguelikes on any mobile platform =\
Faster Than Light (you should already have this) is pretty awesome, and I'll second Dungeons of Dredmor as well (fucking 120 hours on that stupid game).
About the only downside is the world is mostly static ( dungeons move around but the world map remains the same from game to game ). Characters are insanely powerful, but it's still hard as hell ( I offer a 'fuck you, right in the ear' to the named luminous horrors and headless abominations ;p ).
Never played a roguelike but from the description it sounds right up my alley. Outside of the suggestions here, are there any classics or must-play roguelikes?
If you want to play Nethack and want graphics, http://www.darkarts.co.za/vulture is the one I prefer

I started off with nethack. Didn't like the super old school inventory gui and quit out after about 20 minutes. I don't want to have to look at lists and remember what letter is short for a specific item. Went to te4 and got a couple friends on board lastnight. Played it for about 4 hours straight. Ended up with about 8 character deaths, but still really enjoyed it.
I checked out te4 last night too, and it's a lot more fun than I expected. I first played NetHack back in the 80's, and don't really have the patience for the truly 'old school' games anymore.
Also checked Sword of the Stars - The Pit too, and didn't care for it much. It just doesn't seem to have that much depth to it compared to what one would expect from a roguelike. I'd be a lot more inclined to donate to te4 than buy The Pit, that's for sure.
Yeah, it filled my RL desire for a while. I get this itch every once in a while to play one, and that did it.
