Rogue Tandy Color Computer 3 Game 5.25" Floppy Big Box Near Mint Free Domestic Shipping. Condition is very good near mint. Free shipping within US with USPS First Class (2 to 3 business days).  This game was opened only to allow photographing the contents and shrink wrap is 99% intact.  It is truly very lightly used and near mint.   The game, which started out on college mainframes in the late 70's and ported by AI Designs, inspired a whole genre of role-playing games called rogue-likes.  As described on Moby Games ... more or less: Rogue is a turn-based dungeon crawler in which the player controls an adventurer who must explore the dangerous Dungeon of Doom in order to retrieve the precious Amulet of Yendor and make it out alive. The player character starts on the upper-most level, slowly makes his way downwards until the amulet is found, and then must survive the ascent battling every step of the way. The game cleverly [for 1986] uses ASCII characters to represent locations, items, monsters, and the protagonist himself. There are twenty-six different types of monsters, symbolized by their initial letters (e.g. L for Leprechaun). Monsters have different abilities and modes of attack. The dungeon and the monsters and items in it are randomly generated each time the player begins a new game so replayability is unlimited.  Levels get progressively more complex and maze-like, and monsters grow in strength the deeper the hero ventures into the dungeon. The player character can acquire better weapons and armor, gain experience points and level up. Should the protagonist perish in the dungeon, the player must restart the game anew. The game is on 5.25" floppy disk, requires OS-9 on the Tandy Color Computer 3 with at least 128K of ram.
