    Any Nethack?

    Advertisement



    Hello all, great site you've got here!

    I was just wondering if anyone has heard anything about (or knows where to find it if it's out) a port of Nethack/Moria/Rogue?
    I tried a search here, but it didn't get any game hits on any of the 3. I know I would LOVE to get Nethack on my BB (but I probably wouldn't get any work done!)

    I know there's a port for Palm's, but anybody know of anything for BB's?

    Re: Any Nethack?

    it's an older DOS ASCII based graphics game (ie. you are represented by: @, your pet dog is: d, a dragon is: D, etc...). A completly absorbing, addictive, your life ends cause you forget to eat game (if you like RPG's). There's a few similar ones around like Rogue, and Moria. I'm actually kind of surprised more of you haven't heard of it - not big gamers from back in DOS days? I used to play Moria on an old 80186 pc for hours at a time.
    Diji's link to wikipedia probably has all you need about what it is, but if you'd like to try it or read more the Homepage for the PC version is at nethack.org (sorry, can't post a link)

    I'd love to see it on the BB, but I haven't been able to find anything - so I don't think it's out there. :cry:

    Re: Any Nethack?

    It was a lot of fun. Last time I checked, they were looking at trying to develop a multi-player version but I don't know if they succeeded.
    My friends and I used to play 'hotseat' mode. Everytime one of us died, we'd switch.
    I liked the fact that it was ASCII, it allowed you to use your imagination. I've been playing Moria and Nethack on and off since the 80's.
    Hmmmm, maybe I'll have to dig out Moria, or download Nethack when I get home tonight.

    <sigh> I was hoping I'd be able to play it when riding on the Go Train or the Subway. Don't think so though.

    I'm sorry I didn't explain more thoroughly... I was in a hurry.

    There's a Java version of it here:

    I suspect that it'd take some work to get it going on a Blackberry, though.
