User reviews of NetHack
Great game, but it could use a menu instead of the control shortcuts. Movement is simple though because og the 'grid overlay'. And D&D dungeons are fun indeed!

Good effort but not really playable on my dell streak 2.2 due to tiny game window size.not sure how anyone can play it on smaller screens.shame

Looks good, but with HTC Incredible (no hardware keyboard and optical joystick doesn't do diagonals) it's basically unplayable at present.

Great porting, but too difficult to play on a small video screen and with no keyboard. Uninstalled.

Unplayable Seems designed for a super low-resolution screen. The keyboard is less than 1cm wide in the bottom corner and there doesn't seem to be a way to use a real Android keyboard.

It's a direct port Unfortunately, a direct port has no concession to a touchscreen or the limitations of a software keyboard. There are better Nethack ports free on the market. Try the version by Gurr, instead.

Good enough Out of nethack clients on the play store this one is probably the nicest; that said, I realised you're probably not supposed to play nethack on a phone.

It is the nethack experience Controls are still quite complex, but they have made some improvements over the original. Better tilesets would be great, but would require a talented pixel artist who doesn't rely on cartoonizing everything.
