This pretty well sums it up, Dungeon Adventure of course getting my particular nod due to my ASCII bewilderment with the other, ASCII Quest.

Really do hope for PC ports one day same as all these iPhone Roguelike projects.

Dang you're fast.  I was gonna post that.

I wonder how it'll work out for those games.  If nothing else, it's always nice to see the roguelike genre get more mainstream exposure.

Considering the very low prices, with one translating to $1, and if they can integrate the online leaderboards and such as the plan seems to be to good effect, I could see a good many purchases impulse and otherwise since the games don't appear to be slapped together.

I've no HDTV or 360 though...so surely do I hope for a PC version down the line.  If they can find a good groove I see no reason it couldn't make it to Impulse, Steam, and so on.
