Pathos has just been published as an Android app on the Google Play store!

(Pathos is a tile graphics roguelike built on the entire rule set from Nethack).

Works really well on my Nexus 9 tablet but no idea about any other device! Don't try and play on your phone though.

Also includes a new update for the level 25 end game. I won't give any spoilers but it brutal and there lots of treasure.

Traditional Roguelikes (Turn Based) / Pathos: Nethack
« on: August 23, 2015, 05:02:18 AM »

Pathos is a dungeon adventure game with the soul of Nethack. Tile graphics and sound effects. Keyboard, mouse or touch screen. Only for Windows 7+ at the moment but Android and iOS versions are coming in the future.

If you love Nethack as much as I do please have a look at some gameplay videos:

Ranger part 1 of 1
Ranger part 2 of 2

If you like what you see you can download and play

It's not a 100% port of Nethack because I haven't spent the last 20 years on it!  But I think you'll find it captures the essence and smooths out a lot of the legacy usability awkwardness.  I'm hoping to get some interest and feedback to continue the development.  Looking forward to hear what you think.
