Best Dungeon Crawlers?

Hi all, I absolutely love playing both Desktop Dungeons and The Enchanted Cave on my PC, but I can't seem to find anything remotely as engaging on the iPhone thus far. I've so far downloaded 100 Rogues and Fargoal but I can't really get into either in the same way as the PC games.

Are there any other worthy dungeon crawlers that I've overlooked?

I really like 100 rogues, but didn't dig fargoal at first but now I am loving it. Another one I am really liking is Legends of Yore and it is free. You can create an account and play cross saves with the pc version.

Cavern was a really great roguelike...i think it's not on the appstore anymore though.

Maybe RogueTouch, or Powdeer if you are a more hardcore rogue player. There's also Undercroft, which is not a roguelike, but which has a lot of classic golder-box style dungeon crawling. Maybe Solomon's Keep?

edit: I totally forgot Dungeons & Such!

The Sword of Fargoal takes a bit to get into, but then becomes rather addictive. Fargoal 2.0 is also in the works and should be released "before summer", though the programmer had preciously mentioned April and May, so this is pretty much a "when it's done" candidate. There will be additional classes and such, and it will be an universal app.

100 Rogues was the very first game I bought when I picked up an iPad. Still one of my favourites.

Of course, there's always Nethack! Both an iPhone version and an iPad-only HD version. Free.

Undercroft, definitely. Not exactly a dungeon crawler, but The Quest is great too, if you don't mind the terrible graphics.

Agreed! Nethack is the mother of them all IMO. Note however for the iPhone there are 2 implementations of Nethack, both are free but only one is actually playable, Dirk Zimmermann's iNethack (aka Nethack HD for the iPad).
