Although none of the major roguelikes was written in Pascal, quite a few of the recently developed roguelikes were made in an open-source implementation of that language called Free Pascal.

A very modern implementation of the Pascal language. It is a very portable language, being available for processors Intel x86, Amd64/x86 64, PowerPC, Sparc and Motorola 680x0; and the following operating systems: Linux, FreeBSD, NetBSD, MacOSX/Darwin, MacOS classic, DOS, Win32, OS/2, BeOS, SunOS, QNX, Classic Amiga. It is a 32/64 bit compiler. It is quite compatible with Borland Pascal and strives to be compatible with Delphi (thanks to the Lazarus Project (http://www.lazarus.freepascal.org/). It has several enhancements over classical Pascal, as for example:

  • Function and procedure overloading
  • Operator overloading
  • Classes
  • Java-like interfaces
  • Exceptions
  • Properties
