No discussion of rogue would be complete without mentioning Rog-O-Matic. It was a bot that easily outplayed most humans.

You could watch the bot play in real time. It would give you status as to what it was doing. E.g. when it was wounded and in danger of dying, it would flash "Run Away!" to tell you what its current strategy was.

It was easy to connect Rogue-O-Matic to rogue; simply a matter of stdin and stdout. That was the simplicity of Unix.
