O tej grze

Time moves forward only when you do in the dungeons of WazHack, so you can take your time to solve problems instead of just spamming 'attack' and 'drink healing potion'.

With over 300 unique items to be found, you will invent your own solutions to sticky situations. With over 150 different monsters, many with unusual attacks, you will find plenty of sticky situations!

The procedurally-generated dungeon and vast array of possible items gives immense replay value. Some games you'll find a good weapon early, other times you'll rely on wands or potions or spells.

You don't see it much in the all-action video above, but some of the most fun is had just standing still trying to work out how to get out of a sticky situation. Should you try that unknown potion? Maybe it's Healing? What about that wand? Maybe it's Magic Missile... or maybe it's a Wand of Create Monster, and it'll get even stickier!

You start with your choice from 16 character classes, each with different starting equipment, stats, and available talents. The game you play also depends very much on what interesting loot you find. Maybe you'll find a great spellbook and put all your efforts into turning your uneducated knight into a master battle mage!

Still confused about this unusual game? You can try the demo at http://www.wazhack.com/play, or just watch one of the many Let's Play videos that WazHack players have put on YouTube (every game is different, so they won't spoil it for you).

If you have ever played NetHack or a similar roguelike, you will find plenty familiar about this game, but be prepared for a lot of surprises too.

If you consider yourself an oldschool gamer, D&D lover, classic RPG and rogue like games enthusiast who puts more value on gameplay than state of the art graphics than this game is for you!

I found myself enjoying this game more and playing it more than big popular titles with shiny graphics and repeat gameplay.

All I can say is, give it a go and see for yourself. And you'll be amazed what a ONE MAN TEAM can do!

This feels like a cheap, clumsy Nethack clone. It would have been far better with A) more content, B) unique monsters, C) different names for the scrolls (and maybe a second identifier on potions) since they're lifted right out of Nethack, and D) MORE CONTENT.

I do like the side "rooms" you can "investigate" for monster waves. Maybe I am passing judgement way too soon since I've only made it about 300 feet in. What wikis I found didn't seem populated with content, making things seem sparse.

Had this been a "standard" dungeon crawl game and not such an obvious overglorified nod to Nethack (right down to water nymphs and fountains), I'd probably enjoy it more. But it's a fun little diversion, so I'll keep playing. The amount of effort going into this to get the right feel shows, so that is worth something. And a 3D roguelike never hurts, it is a nice change from the pixel art of Dungeon Crawl Stone Soup and others.

$10 is... a bit steep. I'd say $5 or $6.

8/10 --- worthy of picking up, but it does Need More Content.

Excellent game, highly recommended.

Plenty of content from enemies, to items and backgrounds. Very good graphical representation of the genre.
Permadeath factor does come into it and you will get that sinking "i'm about to die and there is nothing i can do" feeling, but hey you cant win 'em all and you dont need to, because even if you did, you'd be itching to hit the 'again' button, because hey next time you'll do better, right?

WazHack is really really good, and this is from someone who usally doesn't really get into rogue-like games very well.

While it's dressed up like side-scroller, it's really a turn based game underneath. Gameplay leans heavily towards strategy and planning and it has a pretty steep curve in how difficult it gets as you descend the dungeon levels, but it never really get's frustrating. I don't want to say too much more since discovering it for yourself is a big part of the experience.

If you're unsure there's a demo you can try out at www.wazhack.com
One quick tip: if you buy it and you don't have an arrow on the right on the character select screen to load the second set of characters, you're stuck in demo mode. Restarting steam fixed that for me.

I don't have time to write this review because I just died and I have to try again...
...and again...
...and again...
...and again...
...and again...
...and again...
...and again...
...trying again has never been so addicting before.

VERDICT:
You definitely should try it... again!

The hack in the name is worthy of the original nethack... this game is amazing if you are into oldschool roguelikes and the 2D representation of the action is nice and endearing and makes it a charm to follow your adventure until you hit another untimely death.

But the fun is in how far you can get and what you can amass this next time around....

A cartoony tribute to the RNG gods. Same feel as classic 80's rogue, but with 90's Three Dee Grafix. It feels like most development energy went into the engine, custom graphics, and classes/skills. There's also some well aged cheese around, for those who make the appropriate temporal sacrifice.

If you strongly identify with the @ character on your keyboard, stick with nethack. If you need to be graphicsed at for immersion, get a modern "roguelike" rather than a real rogue variant like this one.

Pros: Classic feel. Skills / talents are interesting. Classes are pretty well-balanced. Blends in some modern mechanics, while keeping to the genre. Good cheese. No spoon-feeding.

Cons: Could use more content. It isn't as rich in items and monsters as many rogue variants (nethack, angband, moria, and tome), or as other modern "roguelikes" that don't stick to the classic formula. Unique monsters would be nice.

You should probably buy this game. The term "Roguelike" gets tossed around a whole hell of a lot, but this is one of the few games that lives up to the title.

I was hesitant to try this after seeing it work its way through Alpha/Beta on Desura over time, but I tried the demo on my Android phone and was pleasantly surprised. Then I picked it up on Steam, and with the improved interface I was blown away by how fun it actually is!

As a Crawl/Nethack player over the years, I can without hesitation say pick this one up. Neat graphical flair, turn based dispite what it looks like, and loads more depth then it seems at first glance. Recommended!

Wazhack is a great side-scroller that pays great attention to detail. What more is there to say? How many games are there that you can throw your potion at any emeny to find out what the potion does? What game can you play as over 10 very different classes with pros and cons? This game even takes it up a notch and allows you to be stronger at certain magics depending on if you are chotic-evil. The only main flaw I can name is that I cannot run it at the highest setting on my pc but that is mostly a personal problem.

Certainly the rogue-iest rogue-like since, well, rogue.
If you consider being very similar to a game that's nearly 35 years old to be a good thing, then I heartily recommend it.

I do consider it thusly, so I do recommend it.

WazHack is a very fun Perma-Death Indie game. It can also be very frustrating. This is basically a Dungeon-based RPG. There's not much of a story line, other than to go run and get an amulet, but it's more about the gameplay than the actual story line.

You can kill whatever crosses your path, but beware of who you hit. Some of your allies that turn on you can be very powerful. You want to be very VERY careful when it comes to perma-death. A single mistake will kill your character and that will lead to you starting completely over from scratch. The save will also be gone. If you have friends that have this game, then I suggest you join them, because it will make things a lot easier. Of course, when you play with them, you will want to make sure your character is in a very safe zone, because the game continues, if at least 1 person is connected and moving.

The enemies can be very brutal. You will sometimes come across horde doors. Sometimes it just seems endless, the amount of enemies that just poor out. It's very strategic and requires a lot of patience. This game is not to be rushed, what-so-ever.

4/5

Cons: This game is ridiculously evil.

Pros: This game is ridiculously evil.

A+ roguelike, would play again

In all seriousness, this is bar none the best indie roguelike out there at the moment. It's simple yet engrossing, cruel but leaves you craving more. The mix of strategy and action is on point. Attacks are an almost entirely automated affair, but the game nails that way of making you feel like you're doing something even though you really aren't which makes hack 'n' slashes tick. Thanks to the brilliant 'time only moves when you do' system, the game moves as quickly or as slowly and carefully as you choose for it to. And while death is permanent, you can exit mid-run and come back to your game later, which is a welcome feature on the off chance you've actually managed to go more than twenty minutes without dying. Fiendishly unforgiving, Wazhack is a delightful little ball of hate.

Very good game. If you like dungeon crawlers with a bit of a twist you'll love this game. I hope there are more content-packed updates to come, because this game is worth it.
