MAG (Mike's Adventure Game) 1.1 (DOS) -

According to the author, Mike Teixeiras, own release notes "MAG, like Hack, is based on the original Rogue game which I first encountered back in high school (Lincoln-Sudbury Regional) in 1980 running on a DEC PDP 11/70 (Unix). A person named Jay Fenlason, who was also at Lincoln-Sudbury with me, wrote his own version of Rogue which he called Hack (he wrote the original). This prompted me to write a version myself which ended up being called MAG (Mike's Adventure Game). The Unix version was pretty much completed in 1985 when I graduated. In 1986, while attending Northeastern University, I began a completely new (color) version of MAG based on the IBM PC machines. Finally, in 1988 I finished it and here it is!"
