Classic Rogue is an updated version of Rogue with modern elements such as a graphical tileset, mouse-based control and sound effects. The game was released by Oryx Design Lab.


From the Oryx Design Lab website:

"Rogue (also known as Rogue: Exploring the Dungeons of Doom) is a dungeon crawling video game by Michael Toy and Glenn Wichman and later contributions by Ken Arnold. Rogue was originally developed around 1980 for Unix-based mainframe systems as a freely-distributed executable, and later included in the official Berkeley Software Distribution 4.2 operating system (4.2BSD). Windows port by Donnie Russell."

"'In collaboration with Donnie Russell (who maintains the windows port) we've released a new version of classic Rogue, the original "rogue" in roguelike. It has been updated using Ultimate Roguelike Tileset style graphics (also includes ascii) and sound effects. Hope you enjoy it!'"
