Why such strong praise for a game that "simply" sends one into a dungeon to be pitted against strange foes while searching for treasure? Such a scenario has been repeated hundreds of times in other software presentations. True, but in this case Rogue requires the player to participate with some modicum of thought.
You will not find laser guns or stunning 3D effects. This is a PC version from 1986 of Rogue - the classic adventure game where the graphics is solely made up from text characters. Rogue is a nostalgic piece of our gaming heritage.
