Roguelikes are games similar to Rogue (or NetHack). Generally, a roguelike is a Role-Playing Game featuring randomly-generated content (most prominently, randon dungeon layouts). Often magical items will be given only a vague description until properly identified.
Some of the generally accepted defining characteristics of a roguelike are:
- Random generation of dungeons.
- Unidentified items: at least a significant portion of the items that can be found.
- Permanent death: the player's character is deleted from memory if he/she/it dies; averted in "rogue-lites".
- Minimalistic graphics; averted in "graphical roguelikes".
