Latest revision as of 14:32, 18 September 2021

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

  • Ananias (HTML5, for iPhone, Android, and non-handheld Web/Desktop)
  • CalcRogue (stable; for Palm Treo cell phones and TI QWERTY calculators)

  • Gone Rogue (Android, iPhone, Windows, Mac, Linux, Browser)
