A roguelike for Java enabled cellphones (MIDP2). Currently in a pre-alpha state. GFX stolen with love from POWDER.


  • Tile engine
  • Random level generator
  • Raycasting FOV
  • Monsters
  • Hand to hand combat
  • Ranged attacks
  • Items
  • Time system
  • Ladders up/down
  • Ladders up/down
  • Console with text describing actions
  • Save/load

Known issues

  • FOV artefacts
  • Monsters have stupid AI
  • Potion of speed never expires


  • Joystick or numeric keypad to move (move diagonally using numeric keypad)
  • Fire to pick up items (if on item). Otherwise fire toggles the "cursor" on/off. Target a monster with the cursor and press fire to shoot an arrow.
  • Left soft-key to toggle between game and in-game-menu
  • When in menu mode - left/right switches "menu tab", up/down to select items/options and fire to select/use

Should work on most MIDP2 handsets. But only tested on Nokia 6120 classic and Nokia N95. Will probably look best on a phone with landscape screen (172x220, 240x320).
