Sword of Fargoal remake for iPhone!

FANTASTIC to see the original creator still at it with his chums after all these years.    8)  Seems like I'm going to keep wishing harder and harder for PC ports of all these iDevice Roguelikes as the months roll on.

Well priced too.

I'm hoping to get an iPod Touch for Christmas, and this and the other roguelikes out there will definitely be some of my first downloads!
