News/release from Abcd1234:
Welcome to the home page for my port of NetHack to the Nintendo DS. The goal of this project is to create a port of NetHack for the DS utilizing the unique features of the DS to create an easy-to-use NetHacking experience. I think I've succeeded in that goal. I'm probably wrong.
An unscaled, scrolling map view on the lower screen, which can be interacted with using the touchscreen.
Minimap, message, and status information rendered to the top screen.
Support for 16- and 256-color BMP tilesets, including non-rectangular tiles (tiles must have dimensions which are a multiple of 8, e.g. 8x8, 8x16, etc).
Support for text mode, with optional full color and IBM graphics.
Popup command window for easy access to the full command set.
On-screen keyboard for text input and extended commands.
Keys are almost completely configurable.
Support for both left- and right-handed modes.
Save and restore.
Yup, version 1.7 is out. Don't ask me if I can keep up this pace… but, hey, enjoy it while it lasts. This version includes some bug fixes, as well as some small feature additions:
Fixes engraving and similar options to allow one to use their finger, as well as an inventory item.
Fixes the text cursor so it's properly animated for things like dagger throws and so forth.
There's now a graphical cursor, similar to the one present in the X11 port.
Corpses are now coloured correctly in text mode.
