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.

Cellphones

Note: If you are buying a cellphone, consider a PalmOS-based or Windows Mobile-based "smartphone", as those can run a wider variety of software. See the Palm and Windows Mobile sections below.

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. 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.
