Overview

WazHack is a retelling of NetHack in the form of a 3D realistic side-view "platformer".

It keeps to the Berlin Interpretation except it is:

  • not grid based;
  • not ASCII, but 3D realistic.
  • supports multiplayer (not by resorting to realtime)

It is turned-based, but the turns are in fractions of a second. When the player moves or acts, the world moves forward; when the player stops to contemplate his inventory, time stands still.

Multiplayer

Multiplayer is achieved by players playing in their own instance of the dungeon, but being aware of the other's locations and able to trade items when near each other. Dungeon layout and base creature encounters are the same for all players (and items too, in competition mode).
