A roguelike computer game is one that resembles Rogue.

The original Rogue game featured a thief who entered the dungeon to steal the Amulet of Yendor. A free clone called Hack retained the Amulet, but introduced some features including a pet dog and multiple roles (classes). The six roles in Hack are Tourist, Speleologist, Fighter, Knight, Cave-man, and Wizard.

The game NetHack has added several features to Hack, including both the Rogue class and the Rogue level.

List of roguelike games

Though Diablo borrowed much from the roguelike genre, it is not usually considered a roguelike itself. There is a roguelike based on it, however.

RogueBasin also has a more complete list of roguelikes.
