A favorite on college Unix systems in the early to mid-1980s, Rogue popularized the dungeon crawling computer game dating back from 1980 (and spawned entire class of derivatives known collectively as “roguelikes”). gandreas software now presents the classic for the iPhone/iPod Touch:

– Playable in either “ASCII” mode, or graphics mode (just rotate the device to switch)
– Obscure keyboard commands replaced with a simple taps for movement, or a handy command picker.
– Commands can also be activated by a unique gesture based command – want to search for a secret door? Swipe across the top of the play area (all the gestures are shown on the command picker for easy reference)
– Graphics can be zoomed in/out via pinch
– Completely faithful Rogue experience (all the levels, monsters, potions, scrolls, etc…)

Explore the Dungeons of Doom and retrieve the Amulet of Yendor, or die trying!
