I was looking for AngbandCE a while back too and ran into the same problem.  Eventually found it in a web archive here: http://web.archive.org/web/20021213190157/http://mirrors.mksecure.com/angbandce/angbandce.PPC_ARM.CAB

The archived AngbandCE site from which that comes is here: http://web.archive.org/web/20030202190951/mirrors.mksecure.com/angbandce/

I haven't actually had a chance to install it yet though - so I'm not even sure it works under WM5.

There is also NetHack for Windows CE - which I have been playing and it works fine under WM5: http://nethack.org/v343/ports/download-wince.html

Those are the ones I know of but there might be more out there.  Also you could try running a Palm OS emulator to run Palm versions of roguelikes - I know there is a Palm Rogue at least.

Let me know if you find any others!

Is there a JavaVM for Windows CE? If so you can probably run CvRL and DrashRL there. (needs a 1.4.2 capable VM)

Some mobile computer owner may want to take a look at this http://www.kaffe.org/ and try to run java :D

Also, this could be useful: http://java-virtual-machine.net/other.html

Just thought I'd resurrect this thread since I recently got some more roguelikes running on my WM 5 PocketPC.   All of these require the use of a Gameboy Advance emulator - I recommend the excellent PocketGBA for this.

Here are the roguelikes I got running with that:

POWDER - Still getting to know it but it seems like a really well-developed and fun roguelike.  Note:  When you load this with PocketGBA be sure to set "Don't use Cart. mask" in the System Setup panel for PocketGBA - it didn't work otherwise.

AGB_Rogue and AGB_Hack - These have been mentioned here on Roguetemple in the news.  I haven't had much chance to try them out thoroughly yet but they seem to work fine under emulation.  Just rename the .bin part of the ROM file to .gba to get it to load in PocketGBA.  Also I think the "Don't use Cart. mask" setting is needed as with POWDER.

As for the Java stuff Slash mentioned - I still haven't looked into that very much but might try to get a virtual machine running sometime.

I'm really enjoying POWDER so far...
