There is now a new, vastly improved, version of the DS port at - many thanks to Michael Smith. Both the binary and the faangband directory should be recopied, but make sure to keep your save file (faangband/lib/save/PLAYER) if you value it.

The left shoulder button now switches the map between the top and bottom screens, enabling full use of the mouse controls; this and the enlarged font make the game now really playable. Also using help doesn't crash the game any more, and the keyboard has a sensible colour scheme. And the 'A' button acts as Enter, the 'X' button as Escape.

Note that the DS port now uses small screen mode; the most obvious side effect of this is that monster names are abbreviated to initials. To see the monster's full name, tap on it.
