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...)
