BrogueX


Unofficial Brogue port to Android.

GET FIXES/HELP HERE: http://disinterest.org/broguex/

TIPS

- Fix bug where Android UI overlay button presses sometimes work incorrectly when zoomed in.
- Fix bug where long presses sometimes work incorrectly when zoomed in.

BUG LIST

- If your device has a smaller screen, the display may appear corrupted. This is because the font is a bitmap font, and cannot be scaled down small enough. Ensure the "move tapping layer" is turned off. Use the pinch gesture to zoom in, drag the map view to fit, and then turn the "move tapping layer" back on. You may not be able to see the item/monster/health bar on the left-hand-side of the screen. This will be addressed in a future update.

NEW TO BROGUE OR ROGUELIKES?

If you are not familiar with Brogue, or the Roguelike genre, then you should go to the following web site and download a free version for your Mac, Linux or Windows computer.

WHAT IS A ROGUELIKE?

What is a Roguelike? Most modern games have art representing the game world. This presents someone else's vision of what their world looks like to you, and that is what you experience. A Roguelike is a game that uses letters and symbols to represent a game world. This means that once you have familiarised yourself with them, you engage your own imagination to build a picture of the game world. Take a step forwards back into an improved world viewed through text! :-)

BROGUE IS FREE BUT THIS IS NOT?

Yes, you are encouraging me to keep an Android version of Brogue up-to-date.

BrogueX (like Brogue) is open source, and you can download my modified version of the Brogue source code and compile it yourself for your Android device. Every time I publish new changes, you can at no cost, compile your own version and install that. Stop reading, don't pay, go and do it!

Or save yourself the bother and buy BrogueX, and get updates automatically.

Here's the various source code locations:

WHAT DOES BROGUE'S AUTHOR THINK OF YOU SELLING THIS?

Pender, Brogue's author, as approved it as long as it is made clear that this is not the official Android port of Brogue. Nowhere have I claimed this, and here this is made explicit.

CAN I RELEASE A FREE VERSION OF THIS APP?

It is open source. But if you release another version of this, please:
- Provide your own source code releases and support for them
- Make it clear it is neither the official Brogue or my version BrogueX.

It's okay. overall I think they did ok with porting over the game to a smartphone. I just wish that they would put a little more effort into how the game plays on a phone or tablet. it's still fun to play on the phone or the tablet if you understand how it all works on it but it took me a little bit to figure that out. and generally I think paying for this is not worth it maybe if it were free I would recommend it more. my recomendation is if you have a bunch of money left over go ahead and get it but stick to pc too

Literally just a port I really like brogue on PC, but just porting over the game to run on your phone isn't enough, especially if I just paid for it. I feel as if there was no effort put into it.

Bad port On Galaxy Note 3 here, so plenty of screen space yet it needs to scroll to fit it all on screen? Buttons are ugly and obscure content underneath. Movement controls are vague and imprecise. Original game on pc is awesome, this port just makes me sad.
