Why build an iPhone Roguelike game?

Answer:
Roguelikes are really cool games built by very passionate developers who just love the game play and good honest game mechanics. Its the move away from the current FPS obsession and its a move back to the good old days where games had great gameplay and simple user interfaces was not a restriction on fun and good adventure. For me this was the 80’s when games like Ultima III, Galaxy,  Cops and Robbers, Elite, MULE led the way with just good honest game play.

There are some cool roguelikes on the Appstore but I am not sure that there are many with the simple UI and gameplay I am designing for the iPhone (and iPad)

The following sites should get you a little excited about Roguelikes:
