    HackDS 1.0
    Port of PC Roguelike
    Hackds is a port of the PC roguelike, Hack to the NDS, made using devkitARM, libnds and libfat. It can be played on an actual game console with third-party rewritable game cartridges, or on a computer with an emulator such as iDeaS.

    The object of Hack is to descend into a dungeon to retrieve the Amulet of
    Yendor and return to the surface with it. The Amulet is in the possession of
    the Wizard of Yendor.

    Nice, a Hack port! [​IMG]

    I'm gonna try it, hoping that controls will be good for a portable console [​IMG]

    I'll ask the obvious question here, what is the difference between this and Powder?

    I like the three separate keyboards on one screen, but it seems a bit confusing. Wouldn't it be better to have a SUPER key that switches between them so its easier to hit a "key" with the touch screen?

    ...might try this. I tried powder once and I went down one floor and was confused and my DS froze.

    Very nice, I love that you can turn the tileset off and on (killing @ monsters FTW)
