SLASH'EM (which is short for Super Lotsa Added Stuff Hack - Extended Magic) is a variant of NetHack with, as its name implies, many new features. It started by combining the NetHack variant SLASH (by Tom Proudfoot) with Larry Stewart-Zerba's Wizard Patch, with various additional changes since.
SLASH'EM can be described as NetHack with some added features, such as:
- New classes
- A longer dungeon
- Many special levels (like the Sokoban levels)
- Lots of new monsters and items
Note that Sokoban levels are among the features that have been adopted into Nethack from SLASH'EM.
Version and platforms
SLASH'EM was created by Warren Cheung, based on NetHack v3.3.1. The latest version is V0.0.7E7F3, available for Windows, OS/2, and Fedora Core 3. DOS and Mac Classic versions are available for 0.0.7E7F2.
There is a successor named Slash'EM Extended which is being developed by another dev team; it is based on SLASH'EM V0.0.7E7F2 but some of V0.0.7E7F3's features have been patched in.
