Advanced Rogue on (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, 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.

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.
