Well, somewhat to my surprise, a DS port now exists. It is still very rough, and will (I hope) improve a lot. In particular, it currently uses the top screen as the map, and the bottom one as a keyboard; the buttons are more or less useless (although I think one of them may be needed to progress at some stage in the birth process...). It currently supports one savefile, and (tiny) ascii graphics only.

It is very largely ripped off from the excellent NethackDS, but still has a long way to go to emulate its beauty.

If anyone wants to look and laugh, it's now available at

I will update this without notice as it improves, and post notice when it is in something like final form.
