A handheld roguelike is a roguelike game for a small electronic device such as a cellphone, a video game system, or a PDA.

Even a system capable of running Windows or Linux does not guarantee a good roguelike experience. The small screen and limited controls of most handhelds mean that, unless careful work is done in UI design, the resulting game can be unplayable.

Some of these games also work on Windows or Linux, either by themselves or with the help of an emulator.

Multiple platforms



Note: If you are buying a cellphone, consider a PalmOS-based or Windows Mobile-based "smartphone", as those can run a wider variety of software. See the Palm and Windows Mobile sections below.

Game Boy Advance

Game Boy Color

Nintendo DS



PlayStation Portable

Windows Mobile / Windows CE / Smartphone 2002
