Nethack on a Blackberry?
May 14, 2008 7:54 AM   Subscribe

Has anyone been able to successfully run Nethack or any roguelike on the Blackberry (8830)? I've exhausted my ability to find anything relevant from google later than 2004. Thanks!

Best answer: I used to waste time playing Dweller, a very basic roguelike, on my relatively simple Sony Ericsson W810i. I don't know if the Blackberry runs Java programs, but if it does then this is probably your best option.

Can your blackberry run telnet/ssh?

I have successfully been able to play nethack on my treo, via ssh to my home Linux box or to the servers, using the vi keys for movement. A little slow, but playable.

I know rogue was ported to the Palmpilot - I used to play it in 2000 or thereabouts.

Response by poster: Dweller looks cool, but I can't get the .jad or .jar to load on my BB. *sigh*.

I'm so new to BB I have no idea if I can run telnet!

And finally, Rogue on the Palm was an exercise in futility. That's why I was so excited about possible playing a roguelike on the BB. Full keyboard man!
