    My top roguelike games (not in any order) that give me life are:

    Pathos - Easily for me the best version of mobile Nethack (now with the Slash’em content). The developers of Pathos did the impossible and made Nethack, a game that could be considered being unfriendly to new users even on PC, a very smart touchscreen experience. The downside is that Nethack does show it’s age with its dungeon exploration. I prefer Moria and Angband that came after and its variants Z, NPP and T.O.M.E. but those haven’t made the journey to mobile...yet. Still Nethack is a classic and well worth having on your phone.

    WazHack - Probably my favorite classic hardcore dungeon crawl on the small screen. Best way to describe WazHack is “2D Nethack” but with its own personality and superior atmosphere. The game can be very unforgiving but it’s worth sticking with it since, like Nethack, you will find yourself in amusing difficult situations that you may have not encountered before even after many dungeon runs.

    Space Grunts - My favorite Sci Fi roguelike that brings that Aliens experience along with destructible environments. OrangePixel games are usually great and this is my favorite from the developer. Well worth picking up if you haven’t already!

    Cardinal Quest II - One of the top modern day dungeon crawls on iOS for me. In my humblest of opinions very few games come close to CQ II in terms of gameplay and mobile presentation. Even though this game is talked about fondly by most who have played it I still think it deserves more attention.
