Advanced Rogue on rlgallery.org (ARRP)
« on: September 15, 2012, 06:18:29 PM »
Advanced Rogue is one of the original Rogue variants, released in 1985.  @Play has a good article on it.  It introduced several new ideas, including using the same letter for multiple monsters, a choice of character classes, and a world outside the dungeon.  Thanks to the Roguelike Restoration Project, it supports arrow keys.

You can now play online at rlgallery.org, either over SSH or through the Web app.  I've fixed a bug that caused lots of crashes in shops, and some others that drew prompt messages on top of the map.

There's still at least one crash-causing bug that I haven't been able to reproduce, so please report any crashes.

Have fun, and happy Roguelike Release Party.
Roguelike Gallery: play Rogue online.  SSH or in browser.

Very nice---congrats on making the release party and even moreso the dedicated works to support keeping the classic progenitors alive and playable going forward.
