Description

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!

Rogue: best roguelike game!

:
This is a great port, and I'm happy to see it on the iPhone. The gesture-based interface is tricky, but it is no more obscure than the keyboard shortcuts of the original. Graphics and responsiveness are great on the iPhone and the pulldown menus are better than a keyboard system. Landscape mode zooms out so you can see more dungeon but everything gets small -- a pinch and zoom/pan interface would be sweet, as would some battle sounds. The port stands up just fine as is though, and is highly playable and ready to play, so long as you know you're playing a graphically simple, ancestral computer game.

Can we get Nethack and Elite next, please? :-)

CHEAT CODE Wizard Rogue

:
If you want to make the game a little different, trace a "W" across the screen. When it prompts you for the wizard's password, type "bathtub"

Enjoy!

4/5 stars

Yep! This is rogue

:
Once you figure out the gesture interface, you're up and running. In a few respects, it's easier to learn than the original full-keyboard version!

Once I worked out how to actually attack a monster (swipe from the center all the way to the edge, versus just to the monster, which makes you rest!), i now have something to do at the airport.
