A handheld roguelike is a roguelike game for a small electronic device such as a cellphone, a video game system, or a PDA.

Even a system capable of running Windows or Linux does not guarantee a good roguelike experience. The small screen and limited controls of most handhelds mean that, unless careful work is done in UI design, the resulting game can be unplayable.

Some of these games also work on Windows or Linux, either by themselves or with the help of an emulator.

Tip: When you buy a mobile phone, get a smartphone like an iPhone, Palm Treo, BlackBerry, or Windows Mobile device. Smartphones can run a wider variety of software than most cellphones. See the Palm and Windows Mobile sections below.

Windows Mobile / Windows CE cell phones only

Game Boy Advance

To play these games, buy an inexpensive Game Boy Advance flash cartridge or download a Game Boy Advance emulator for your PC. NO$GBA[7] is currently one of the more accurate Game Boy Advance emulators for the PC. Perhaps it is also possible to play them using a computer-to-GBA link cable or a Game Boy Advance Movie Player or other such device. You can also play these (and any other Game Boy Advance homebrew applications) on a Nintendo DS via a slot-1 card such as the CycloDS Evolution[8]
