Roguelike

A roguelike computer game is one that resembles Rogue. See Gameinfo:Roguelike.

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.
