A game will usually provide a "save game" feature, but this is only intended to allow splitting a game across multiple sessions, and the save file will be deleted automatically when the character dies.
The game may provide a "wizard mode" which allows exploring the dungeon without risk of death, but again it is not possible to win honourably using such a mechanism.

Rogue is a dungeon-crawling computer game dating from 1980.
Unlike most contemporary adventure games when it was written, however, the dungeon and everything in it is randomly-generated, yielding a different game each time it's played.
In the original version, all the aspects of the dungeon, including the character and the monsters are represented by letters and symbols, making the game appropriate to play on a dumb terminal.

Initiative is rolled once at the beginning of the game, and that sets the tone.
The game moves very quickly, and a battle with a decent sized force (which comes with the game) can be over in two hours, less if you're quite familiar with the game.
This is a great rule, and allows the game to flow smoothly while still letting players hash it out after the game is over.

One problem symptomatic of this simplistic game play is the speed of the game – the Quests are too easy, and basic, while the combat is made very difficult by slow and decidedly static characters, a constant barrage of baddies, and the occasionally irritating camera angles.
Onto the game’s audio now, and surprisingly, the voice-acting is actually of a reasonable standard – despite the occasionally over-dramatic British accents (we’re not talking Olivier here, folks), all is generally fairly convincing.
