Better Xterm


Angband is a roguelike adventure game based on the works of J.R.R. Tolkien. You explore a very deep dungeon, kill monsters, try to equip yourself with the best weapons and armor you can find, and finally face Morgoth - "The Dark Enemy".

Unlike most CRPGs, roguelikes are not plot-driven adventures 'on rails'. You will die often. The fun lies in learning tactics for a chosen race/skill combination and seeing how far you get!

Angband for the Internet tablets comes in two versions, a SDL version that can display graphics tiles, and a 'ncurses' version which is text-only and runs in an xterm.

The ncurses version should install to any tablet. Requires ncurses libraries ncurses-base and libncurses5. You must learn how to install libraries yourself. Installs to 'extras menu' New version 6 disables scrollbar, toolbar, sets font size and switches to fullscreen when launched from menu.

You may get better results with jott's svn osso-xterm build.
