Nethack for Blackberry

While I’m on the subject of the BlackBerry, I’d like to note that there’s a marked absence of Roguelikes for the device. There’s a bunch of Roguelikes for handhelds, including Nethack for Windows CE, but not a one listed for BlackBerry.

It’s true that I’m not the first person to notice or complain, but I’d love to add my voice to the choir.

Tons of games exist for BlackBerry—I don’t know how I’d get through airports, bus rides, and meetings without them—so why this one oversight?

If you don’t know what Nethack is, it’s simply the best game ever.

An odd BlackBerry shortcoming

I’m not sure why I can’t easily undelete items on my BlackBerry. Ten minutes after I decide I can wait until I’m at my desk I realize I should have replied before I pressed the delete key.

There’s a “deleted items” folder that’s always empty, but nothing else apparent in the UI. Perhaps I’m missing something obvious, but I’ve looked and looked and can’t find it.

I don’t like the BlackBerry UI at all (though it’s better than my old Motorola pager!) but this seems like an odd oversight even for RIM.
