    NetHackDS v1.7
    Newcomer roguelike by ~brettk


    Minor update to ~brettk's NetHackDS. Changelog below.

    [title:v1.6 Changelog] * Makes the arrows tappable in the menus.
    * Adds OK/Cancel buttons to menus and text windows (they're ugly as heck, but they work).
    * Adds a "cursor" in text mode, which highlights the hero's position in reverse video.

    EDIT: Quite a busy fellow, releasing v1.7 the same day. Changelog and new download below.

    [title:v1.7 Changelog] * 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.

    So, should I download this one, I just got 1.5!

    I'll wait till 1.7 or 2.0 or whatever the next upgrade is, the changelog doesn't look major enough for me to pick something else up just yet.

    Yeah... in case it wasn't obvious, I tend to go for the "release early, release often" approach to software development... as evidenced by my releasing 1.7 this evening...

    [​IMG] Even though this game hasn't been worked on as long as Powder...

    How good would you say this game is compared to it?

    sounds like I should give it a try,
    it'll have to be later though.

    You know, with this being updated, my post looks sorta silly, now, doesn't it?
