Downloads for Rogue
Rogue proved extremely popular on college Unix systems in the early to mid-1980s and inspired a class of derivatives known collectively as "roguelikes".
Because the input and output of the original game is over a terminal interface, it is relatively easy in Unix to redirect output to another program. One such program, Rog-O-Matic, was developed to play and win the game. It remains an interesting study in expert system design (Ken Arnold intentionally added a new feature to each release of Rogue that would break Rog-O-Matic to see how its authors would compensate).
Rogue are Michael Toy, Glenn Wichman, and Ken Arnold.
The basic movement keys (h, left; j, down; k, up; and l, right) are the same as the cursor control keys in the Unix vi editor.

If you wish to save a game and continue playing it later, type an S. The following message will appear:
Save file (press enter (Image of the enter key symbol.) to default to "rogue.sav")?
There is enough room on the ROGUE disk to save one game. Press the ENTER (Image of the enter key symbol.) key to save the game in the rogue.sav file. Otherwise type a new name. The name may be eight letters, followed by a period and a three letter extender. Press ENTER when you have typed the proper name.
A saved game can be restarted by typing rogue followed by the file name of the saved game. For example, if the game was saved with the file name b:mine.sav you would restart the game by typing rogue b:mine.sav. The game will then restart from the point at which it was saved.
