Oh I have no idea

big boy5 2023-10-29

the game was awesome i beat when i was nine and i am nine now

Kami 2023-10-01

When I try to start the game it says "failed to load game file", anyone know what causes this and how to fix this?

Anonymouse 2023-09-17

isn't it funny how every game that actually follows this game's design is called a Dungeon Crawler, but every game that's a Rogue-Like is nothing like this game?

A 2023-08-25

Hi Gomer, it is scroll lock. To enable / disable fast mode

Migoreng Chilli 2023-01-10

Bruh this game hard i died three times already ):

jmills 2022-10-05

Finally beat this game yesterday. I've been playing it for over 30 years (off and on, natch).

fk 2022-07-27

don't play unless you can save your game. maybe a handful of games out a a 100 good and once you get amulet everything comes after you . props for game being a big waste of time.

Colin 2022-03-20

Hi Laymo. Use a bow by wielding it, and then throwing an arrow. Remember to wield your main weapon again afterwards though!

LAYMO 2022-03-05

How do you actually use a bow?

gomer 2021-10-24

How do you do autopath through the hallways? The old version allowed us to do NUM LOCK to turn that on.

Confused player 2021-09-29

TIP: Press F1 to view the controls.

j 2021-09-15

I can't seem to Save my partially played game until another time. How do I do that?

Craig 2021-03-25

Yes, to go back upstairs, you first have to reach the bottom level, which is like level 23 or something, there you find the Amulet of Yendor, and with that in your possession you can go back up, but the monsters are really after you then.

Colin 2021-02-20

You can only go upstairs once you have got the Amulet of Yendor

Tox 2021-02-17

Can't manage to go up stairs, I've tried a bunch of suggestions.

Everything was working fine... 2020-12-29

Was happily grinding! "Failed to load game data," switched over to 10Rogue, not quite as classic...

JB 2020-12-07

Does anyone remember the Wizard's Password?

Miss U More 2020-11-16

(LOL ok let me try again) to go up the stairs, I thought it was the GREATER THAN sign (aka shift-comma) and to go down the stairs it is LESS THAN sign (aka shift-period). But it's been years since I played this game that I so loved. Another game we enjoyed in college was one called HACK.

Miss U. More 2020-11-16

To go up the stairs I thought it was and down the stairs

S. T 2020-09-17

I want to play this game

Wardawg 2020-09-08

I use the Shift + to descend stairs.

Wardawg 2020-09-08

I play it on a WinX pc using Dosbox. The issue is when you save the game it exits. so i go to the game directory and make a copy of the save (named rogue.sav) and place it in another folder. the reason for this is when you launch rogue to play the save it gets deleted when you die. To play the Saved game launch it with this command: rogue rogue.sav
I save for significant moments in the game. currently jammed on lvl 33 because of jabberwocks and vampires.

Somnambulist57 2020-08-09

"Monster Rooms" occur randomly throughout the game. Characteristics include monsters from levels below that don't occur on the current level and monsters that move that are normally stationary (Leprechaun and Nymph). Better to stay in the doorway and knock them off one at a time than to wander into the room.

BoyMayo 2020-07-29

I randomly stumbled on a room with at least 7 monsters in it, on one of the easier floors. (Level 5, to be exact)

BoyMayo 2020-07-29

I've started to notice how much luck this game requires compared to actual skill.

Buck 2020-07-19

Press 'F1' to see a list of commands. Press '' to go down the stairs.

Somnambulist 2020-07-14

rogue/r to restore the saved game in rogue.sav
If you're running out of food on a regular basis, check those rings! Wearing any ring (except for Slow Digestion) will burn your food at twice the normal rate. Slow digestion will burn at half the normal rate so wearing Slow Digestion and another ring will negate the acceleration. Be careful about putting on unidentified rings! If they're cursed you can't remove it (them) until remove curse is read.

Smellypants 2020-06-23

PRess F1 to see all commands, shift and together let you go downstairs

CrowsAsFuel 2020-06-13

How do you go down the stairs, i've tried everything :P

Richard 2020-05-31

Thank you so much for keeping this game running and available. Great work.

coxbury 2020-05-29

Rachel - basically by beating them.

Rachel 2020-05-25

How do I clear the record of best scores?

creditbutton 2020-05-11

in the original..."S" was slime and it would divide, hence slim mold as food

coxbury 2020-04-29

Why does the Hall of fame only give the top ten. In the original version, it simply kept a record of all the heroes. This made it easier to see exactly how addicted you were, and how many hours you wasted (?) playing the game!

idnas 2020-04-28

I have a Mac Book Pro, how do I go down the stairs?

Coxbury 2020-04-26

Ach y Fe!

Goodbye Work; Goodbye social life. Total addiction - they do say that you must keep away from drink and drugs for ever!

Drag 2020-03-17

This game has perma death so there is no saving and loading

''VOID'' 2020-03-04

Just like ROGUE on CMU-G (Carnegie Mellon University) Computer Science VAX running BSD. In those days ROGUE was considered a CPU HOG if you played the game quickly. Old memories !

Vorris 2020-01-24

To rest for 1 tick press . To rest for more than 1 tick enter a number followed by .

CJ 2019-12-18

How do I rest?

SneakyLynx 2019-11-01

If you want to load your save game, you have to launch the game with the save file appended to it:

bruh 2019-10-27

the original rogue is supposed to be perma death and no save, that's what it was meant to be.

Deb loves Rogue 2019-08-26

You can save, but can you load?

DAVE 2019-08-17

Rouge tournament anyone?

skelebones 2019-08-13

for the people saying that its but that you cant save:
BRUH ITS ROGUE, its MEANT to be like that

ms abena 2019-08-11

there is absolutely no point playing rogue if you cannot find a way to save it as you go through the dungeons! does anyone know how to save and reload a saved game on a windows10 computer?? please! any help would be greatly appreciated!

Duke 2019-06-02

Have the game running wonderfully. Found the Rogue Instruction Manual (very helpful) as is Rogue, The Dungeons Of Doom Walk through... solutions and tips. I just have NOT figured out how to SAVE a game.

Grand Lad 2019-04-26

This still stands as one of the greatest games ever created. But yeah you do need to read up on the manual before you even attempt to play this game. Old but gold

AVCI 2019-01-04


Art Vandellay 2018-08-27

I've found the manual, it's very useful

BoneDehDuck 2018-08-06

The search command (shift S) does not work in this version, instead it saves the game.

Garbox 2018-07-06

Amazing blast from the past! As difficult as it ever was and just as brilliant! How do I load a saved game though?

Borrows02 2018-06-27

How can I get off the floor?

NICKNAME 2018-06-21

On level 6 the stairs didn't spawn :(

oldtime dos user from the 80s 2018-06-19

Dude. Had no idea that the DOS environment didn't regenerate itself afresh with each launch. Or that DEL was active. ROGUE.EXE is gone.

L050618 2018-05-06

Downloaded game, downloaded DOSBox. Now how do I LAUNCH game offline?

Marxally 2017-12-12

the best, easy the goty

cookies 2017-11-18

Craig234 2017-10-05

Great game, but this version does not identify your inventory after the game! That's bad.

Advilist19 2017-09-13
