Future Shock Software's iNethack, one of the original rougle-like games released in 1987, was ported to iOS in 2009 by Dirk Zimmermann. Recently the game was updated to iNethack2. The strategic dungeon crawler had previously not been updated since 2010 so it no longer functioned on iOS 8. iNethack2 now works with current devices and Future Shock has added the additional bonus of 8 new tilesets to explore, new touchscreen gesture controls, customizable keyboard shortcut controls, and hearse (bones file sharing) integration.

Old fans and new players alike can enjoy iNethack2 for free on the App Store.
