Android Port
I saw an old (june 2018) thread about the android port. For some reason i couldnt find it on play store. Anyone knows if it got deleted?
Also got interested in doing a code overhaul since Pete Mack suggested it. Maybe on summer since it would take time. I found some github links of repositories but they seem too outdated.
Has anyone a link to the official github repository?

I think Android requires a rework of the UI. Bundle zap, aim, quaff, activate and activate into use, redo the aim system, and abandon the keyboard system, assigning instead fixed UI buttons for the above.

The minimum fix would be to make the display height correct in portrait orientation. Now it wastes nearly half the screen, drawing only the basic 2380 region. Fixing the defualt display properties would help too--at that scale, the default dark blue is very hard to make out.

... or use tiles. #Its2019

Not on a phone. The display is too small to waste on tiles.

Does anyone know if it is on the play store?
I can only find a Sil port.

It *was* on the play store. I have it installed on my phone, but the app doesn't show up in "installed apps" tab at the store. Too bad. It has big problems, sure. But it is better than nothing.
