Om detta spel

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!

I don't have time to write this review because I've just died and I have to try 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!
Except you're not a big fan of dying in true old-school style.

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....

I had many great hours of fun with this game. Is this game for you?

Do you like permadeath?
Do you like a high difficulty level.
Do you like to find out how items and weapons work and how to make them work in your favor?
Do you like to find out how each mob reacts differently and change tactis in order to beat them?
Do you like strategic and tactical gameplay?
Do you like turn-based combat? (Actually it is both: turn-based or action; as you like)

You will find all of this.

You will also find different characters and many items to loot from.

I was even able to contact the creator of this game and we shared a few Emails.

I can highly recommend this game. Not only will it take you a while to beat, it also has a very high replayvalue, as the dungeons, mobs and items are generated randomly for each playtrhough.

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!

If you're here, you probably already know what a roguelike is. This is one of the best.

The graphics might be unappealing, but they do an excellent job of conveying what you need to know. The game covers every classic element except gods/prayer - though there are genies you can wish from if you're lucky!

It has a unique co-op mode which I would love to try, but haven't found any games being hosted when I went to play...it's described on the game's page.

I hesitate to give any game such a high rating, but I would say 9/10!

Let's see. I was gifted this game for Christmas by a friend and I've played 78 hours in less than a week. That should tell you something. This game is digital crack, it's that addictive. I'm low on sleep and my left eye has a nervous twitch now but who cares? It's back into the dungeon for me. I highly recommend this to those that like true roguelike games such a Nethack or Tales of Maj'Eyal and/or dungeon crawlers in general. In short this game is just pure fun.

Pros:
  • The game is like peeling the layers of an onion. It seems easy to get into, but then you die. And die again. And huh, how about that, I died again. Before long you find new things about the game. Then more new things. And more. And then you start doing better and hey, I may just beat this game after all. Thinking is required to win. You can hack away and have fun, but to stay alive and win you must use everything you have.

  • Tons of items, content, creatures, equipment. Lot's of cool hidden little things to find out.

  • Very good graphics and engine for a game like this. The semi-realtime works perfectly and is a great innovation.

Cons:
  • Caution: Requires willpower to force yourself to take a break to eat or sleep. If you're like me you may not be able to tear yourself away from the game.

I've never had a problem with this game. I think I got it around the time it came out, and it's always been fun to go exploring and find all kinds of loot. Especially fun is using things that your character doesn't know the effects of!

This is an EXCELLENT game! It is a great introduction to rogue-like games if you've never played them, and it's a great game to play if you already love rogue-like games. If you haven't already bought this...what are you waiting for?!? BUY IT!! This is a must-have game for any library.

Just bought this on a whim and it plays on my old but venerable EeePC 900 (900 MHz, 1 GB ram, Intel 915) in Lubuntu 14.04. It's not fast, but it's a rogue-like so speed isn't a concern. Really great game although I killed my tabby cat almost immediately with a lightening wand. Best looking rogue I've got on that machine besides Depths of Peril and Din's Curse.

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?

Exelent game I almost didnt get it because of a review that says it is platformer like. Besides the fact that the view is from the side this is nothing like a platformer. I have never been forced to make a jump from one patform to another. It is a Dungon Crawler with a side view.

the only thing i do in this game is die -_-
but This game is pure roguelike. There are lots of options as you descend the dungeon, and the difficulty is great! The dungeon changes and introduces new monsters now and then. If you're looking for a basic game with a challenge, look no further! One of the best indies in the genrel

An interesting little permadeath rogue-like game, it seemed promising at first. There are over a dozen classes to choose from, each with a skill tree with unique (or at least varied) skills to level up to improve your chosen character. Along the way I'd run into leprechauns and psychadelic fountains that caused the entirety of my game to look like I was tripping on acid while I did battle with floating shapes and swirling colors.

Unfortunately, the game quickly gets old. In reality, the characters don't -feel- much different from one another once you're in the dungeon. Unlike other rogue-likes, where you will die and go, "Oh man! I should've done <enter alternative course of action here>" and give the game another go, I felt frustrated more than anything with this particular game. It seemed like all too often my death was unrelated to anything done on my part and more of a roll of the die that resulted in an overpowered monster showing up or a weapon that was cursed that I never had the opportunity to uncurse on that particular run.

In the end, the game isn't -bad- persay. I might even install it and give it another go in the future when I'm feeling bored. I don't recommend this game, however, because there are far better rogue-likes out there to play that are more fun and have a much longer longevity to them. If you do decide to pick this up, get it when it's on sale!

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.

The most appealing part of this game for me is the smooth transition between action and strategy. You can be running down a hallway and mowing down goblins, then suddenly you're inches away from a giant, sifting through your inventory and trying to decide which item is the most likely to prevent his club from crushing your skull. Do you have a sleeping potion to throw at him? Maybe this unidentified scroll can teleport you to safety? Your wand of polymorphing might turn him into something that can't wield a club...

Looting is another big part of the game that stands out for me. Almost every enemy drops something, often many somethings. My inner hoarder can't help but squeal in delight when I've finished slaughtering a battallion of gnomes and find myself standing knee-deep in daggers, various wands, and a pile of tiny outfits. You have a fair bit of inventory space, and it's surprising how fast this can fill up with scrolls, potions, books, gems, weapons, rings/amulets, armors, foods, etc. Then you have to decide what you want to identify, sell, drink, read, or keep for emergencies.

Don't get me wrong though, having hundreds of items and unlimited time to think doesn't make the game get any easier as you go further down. Enemies become stronger and spawn more quickly, until you're fighting your way through waves of liches, giants, skeletons and demons. Your stockpile of healing items, wands and scrolls can be quickly depleted if you don't plan ahead or if you just have ♥♥♥♥♥♥ luck. Beating the bosses and making it back to the top is a major accomplishment, one that you'll only experience after you have a good grasp on how things work and what the best ways to approach situations are. Even then it's still a rather rare experience, especially with the most difficult characters.

There are only a few games that I can say I've put hundreds of hours into, and I'm proud to say that this is one of them.

TL;DR - Replayability, looting, inventory-management, strategy.

The last game you'll ever need to buy.

If you want a game that's very fun, challenging, and rewarding with unlimited replayability then you should get this. Don't get scroogled by the many "roguelite" or "roguelike-like" games on Steam that claim to be roguelike when they're actually not. Get a true roguelike like this one or Tales of Maj'Eyal.

This game is so addicting it should be called WazCRACK!
