- A human - 05/05/2019 07:48A solid version of a classic game. I like that you're actually able to go over items without picking them up (lower-case G key followed by a direction), as it's mentioned in the Epyx manual. Way too many versions online don't allow for that feature for some reason. However, there is one issue with the version of Rogue playable on this website: potions of haste self simply do not work! It's little things like these that make a difference for hardcore enthusiasts. As addictive as it is, Rogue was always a flawed game to a certain extent, but I'd be lying if I said I don't spend multi-hour sessions playing it to this very day.

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.

Only downside.... how do I restore a saved game... no point in saving if I can't load it again!!
