Rogue Touch is one of the oldest games in the App Store, available since iOS 2.0 in February 2009. Now this completely refreshed classic looks and plays better than ever!

Rogue Touch is based on the classic dungeon crawler Rogue. This famous turn based adventure-RPG has been re-designed from the ground up for easy touch screen gaming, no crazy keyboard commands or dozens of hard to learn gestures here! Rogue Touch is so simple a child can play, but still offers deeply strategic gameplay and literally hundreds of hours of fun and replay value!

Your mission is simple: Explore the Dungeons of Doom while trying to retrieve the Amulet of Yendor... Descend into the depths, find and identify strange and powerful items... Learn how to use your pack full of equipment effectively against increasingly dangerous monsters. Few have made it out alive with the Amulet. Do you have what it takes?

If you liked games such as Torneko / トルネコ / Taloon or Mystery Dungeon: Shiren the Wanderer (Chunsoft) you have to play Rogue Touch! Rogue is the great-grandfather of these games and spawned an entire genre of "roguelikes" over nearly 40 years.


"Rogue Touch is really a dream-come-true for fans of the genre. It's an impressive adaptation of a true classic." - Blake Patterson,

What’s New

Version 2.0.64

This app has been updated by Apple to display the Apple Watch app icon.

Version 2.0.64:
* ZOMG an update, after 4 years!
* WOW its a big update!
* HEY there's a bunch of new and cool stuff in this update!
* 64-Bit Compatible, Position Independent Executable (iOS 8.0 is the new minimum requirement). Portions of the game engine have been re-written to support this as well as the other new features below... You don't even want to know the massive number of deprecations I had to fix dating back to the original support for iOS 2 (º_o)
* Retina Graphics - The dungeon never looked better thanks to a ton of new artwork by Jake Woodruff and a bit of tweaking by yours truly. Everything has been re-imagined in Hi-Res detail.
* Retina Text - Fixed again what has been broken for several iOS revisions, all text is now silky smooth.
* Play Your Own Music - Finally, seamless automatic detection means you can explore dungeons without interrupting your jam (or streaming, or podcast, or audiobook!). Rogue Touch also respects your mute switch.
* Gameplay Improvements - In addition to the classic "Search" for secret doors, you can simply walk into / push on walls where you believe the door is hidden. If you're correct it will be revealed automatically! Secret Doors and Traps may have small but noticeable visual differences now to help clue you in ;)
* Gameplay Improvements Part II - Interesting tweaks for extra damage and/or elemental immunities when weilding special weapons like ice, fire, electric, and blessed.
* Dungeon Improvements - Subtle tweaks to dungeon generator for room sizing, treasure placement, and more. Secret doors should nearly always lead somewhere interesting now, rather than a potential dead end.
* Pinch Zoom Improvements - Now you can enhance your view by zooming anywhere from 25% to 200% size to appreciate the detailed graphics close-up and personal.
* Settings Improvements - Finally, it's super easy access to RT settings, just touch the gear icon found in the upper left corner on the Title Screen.
* BUGFIXES - Lots of little annoying bugs fixed to provide a better dungeon exploring experience! Fixes for various crash conditions, stair placement bugs, and game-lockup at item use during the last turn before death are included.

If you enjoy playing this newly enhanced version of Rogue Touch, please write a review and let everyone know!

I’ve been zapped with the Wand of Enchantment

I’ve recently discovered/re-discovered this game. I originally played hack on Unix platforms about 30 years ago, and this is very similar. A couple of years ago I found poor adaptations for iOS , but I find this adaptation to be excellent. I particularly like it when I get a good game going and am “lost” in it for hours. Well done!

A couple of comments for the developers:

This version is very “dark”. I realize this makes it harder, and there are things like light wands, but it detracts from the enjoyment.

I have not encountered shops yet: are they in this version? Shops were a lot of fun. There was usually a shop in the first few levels.

“Searching” is clunky, or maybe I just haven’t figured it out. Similar to darkness, it detracts. Dead end passages detract, too - what’s the point?

The occasional Scroll of Identify that identifies all items of a certain type, or x number of items, would be nice.

There should be a way to control where you teleport to? Maybe there is, and I haven’t discovered it yet.

There should be a way to go up stairs when you fall through a pit. Otherwise you don’t have the food, hit points, items, etc. you need to survive at a lower level.

Overall, really well done, and thanks!

Classic old-school RPG'ing at it best.

I'm one of those old-timers who actually played the original game and its descendents like Ragarnok during the 1980s. This version really brought back memories of those dungeon crawls. This is a very challenging game not for the easily frustrated ;-) but I always put aside one of the other "eye candy" games to go another round with this fantastic adaptation of a classic. The input from the developer is simply the icing on the cake, as they are constantly looking to improve the product and ask for input on the forums.

EDIT: Eight years later this game has never left my devices. Thought it would die in the upcoming 64 bit move but so happy to see that it received an update! Can't wait to see the new stuff added. Sometimes the oldies are still the best :)

Really Addictive

This app is absolutey the only one I use everyday. I used to play the Epyx Rouge on my old Tandy PC and missed it for several years, till my old friend showed me this on his I-pod, so it ws the first app I bought when I got one. The first time I played and read that I hear the sound of many shuffling feet in the distance I knew they had this version right.

Update 2017- Thanks so much for the update, I was thinking I would not be able to update my phone this fall because I would lose this game that I play very often still. I was so delighted and surprised by the gorgeous update. Thanks again
