Roguelike Classics

Roguelike Classics


From the creators of the Android version of Angband come these classic roguelike games: Rogue, Moria and Larn. Rogue, developed in 1980, is an ASCII-based dungeon exploration role-playing game (RPG). Larn is one of the first roguelike games to feature a persistent home level. Moria applies the same game-play themes to a game based on the books of J.R.R.Tolkien.

Not designed with the Android in mind The most immediate and glaring problem is the keyboard interface. While the keyboard interface is part of Rogue's history, and there are at least thirty possible commands, seventeen of them relating to moving and running, there has to be a more practical interface than just using a bulky touch keyboard that takes up a third of the screen. If you hold the Android normally, you have to squint to see the tiny play area. If you hold it sideways, you either have to scroll to the bottom of the screen after every turn of combat to see how close to death you are (if you're character is near the top of the screen) or you need to constantly scroll to the top to read game notifications (if you're near the bottom). When adapting to a different platform, one needs to design around that platform's limitations; in this case, the small screen and lack of keyboard, not just directly port a controls-intensive game to a smartphone and hope for the best.

The world needed this! Thank you Angdroid.org! The interface takes some getting used to but these games are pure gems. Maybe now the next generation can have access to and finally learn to appreciate these golden classics of yesteryear. ###@###

Faithful to a fault The keyboard interface doesn't translate well to touchscreen play, but this is a good and functional port of some fun classics.
