AGB_Rogue AGB_Rogue is a port of one of the first graphical adventure games, Rogue (the first is believed to have been Adventure for the Atari 2600). Rogue started out on large college mainframes running Unix, and continues to be ported to almost every system, large or small. It is an adventure game with levels made up of ASCII or extended characters, and also has some RPG elements (strength, experience, and item identification). The original game had no sound effects, but a few were added for this version. The gameplay of AGB_Rogue remains faithful to the PC version of Rogue released in 1985.
