V4 was done before the engineering deficit was eliminated. That was very much the wrong order., i feel. Angband now (except for the hairy object code) has a much cleaner codebase than ever. Doing...

Galaxy Note 5 phone. It's a little too narrow for easy typing, but has enough vertical real estate to handle a height 40 map. The fixed height 23 map is the single worst part of the current port.

@Frenchminstaer--
It's like any other group: avoid them if fighting will exhaust your resources. Otherwise, you can run them over like a speed bump (say, if you have a *thanc weapon.)

Usually it depends on weapon weight. (A big weapon like a MoD or Grond gets way more superb and *GREAT* criticals.)

In V, at least, criticals are included in weapon damage estimates. Big dice weapons do up to 10% more than their nominal damage.

Hmmm. The * key is right there at the side of the main keyboard. You pretty much have to play with the roguelike keymap, since toggling back and forth between keyboards is too painful even without...

Yes it does. {RETURN} key brings up a menu of options. However, this doesn't get rid of ridiculous menus, because there are so many things you can use--from spellbooks to arrows.

If you're willing to play with a tiny font, the big problem is UI, not screen area. Of course the screen isn't used well currently--there's a huge blank space between the bottom of the map and the...

@MP-- Osse is bad, sure. But actual deaths to nether breath are more likely to be caused by Dracolich. They are common, and much lower level than Osse.

Not really. Rotating the screen sort of does it for a snapshot at larger font size. But you can't execute any commands in landscape mode.

So I'm getting better at playing on a mobile device

Yes, priest mana penalty for armor weight is a good idea. I thought stealth penalty for rogues would be another.

Yeah, or just plain slay evil. That covers a lot of ground. Even the others tend to have higher damage bonus than ordinary magical weapons.

No, it's a shield of Elvenkind. You need rBase from somewhere. You don't need sustains as a mage. Though I suppose you can get really lucky with a crown of Magi (ESP).

It's 3.4.1, which is close to 4.0. Tiles won't work on a small screen. They eat too much real estate. The game is on Google Play. Give it a try.

@Derakon--true, with one exception. Playing artifactless, Gloves of Combat are the obvious choice for CON-handicapped mages. Those two points are a big deal, after 6 for a ring, and 2 for armor.
