I use the Shift + to descend stairs.

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.

"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.

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

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

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

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.

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 .

How do I rest?

If you want to load your save game, you have to launch the game with the save file appended to it:
C:/ROGUEROUGE.EXE ROUGE.SAV

@MS ABENA
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

I've found the manual, it's very useful https://docs.freebsd.org/44doc/usd/30.rogue/paper.pdf

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

Craig234 2017-10-05

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