86856527, by Michael Brough

This is by the same creator who made Zaga-33 last year, and wouldn't you know it really shows! I'd put this in the category of "board game" roguelikes, but this one makes its heritage proud. Very simple controls (although I think you could get away with keyboard-only controls as long as there was to page to explain them), pretty intuitive gameplay, and its random board changes up what you have to accomplish each time.

This might be a good time to point out that roguelike developers shouldn't feel obligated to stick to the content of Rogue when building a roguelike. More importantly, the game should attempt to challenge the player every time it's played, and provide enough decisions to keep the player's brain churning towards at a solution. Whether it also requires experience and/or skill is at the preference of the developer, but the real key of these games involves varying content, strategic depth, and permanence of progress. 86856527 has all of those, in spades.
