Hack 1.0.1 is the second public release of Hack. Andries Brouwer published it to the (now-obsolete) Usenet newsgroup net.sources in January 1985.

Availability Edit

Hack 1.0.1 first appeared as a patch against the Hack 1.0 sources. Google Groups has archived this patch at [1]. Because one part of the original Hack 1.0 posting is not present at Google, the files in question must be reconstructed before applying the patch.

Ali Harlow[2] has a Hack 1.0.1 distribution at [3].

Significant changes Edit

  • The pickup (,), option (o) and self-teleport (control-T) commands first appear in this version.
  • The HACKOPTIONS environment variable is recognized for the first time.
  • The tag "(with amulet)" now appears in the record file entry when an adventurer has the Amulet of Yendor in his possession at the end of the game.
  • Vault teleporters and the "ad aerarium" inscription appear for the first time.
  • The lurker above is now "'" instead of "~".

The adventurer Edit

The player may choose a Tourist, a Speleologist, a Fighter, a Knight, a Cave-man, or a Wizard. No option to play as female is available.

The adventurer has experience, hit points, armor class, and strength. He may advance to experience level 14.

The initial pet is a little dog.

Dungeon features Edit

The dungeon in Hack 1.0.1 has no branches; there is one way up and one way down. The first 25 levels or so consist of rooms, and beyond that, the adventurer encounters mazes.

Special rooms are shops, treasure zoos, and vaults. If the player's login name is "david", David's Treasure Zoo appears much more frequently.

Traps are:

The Amulet of Yendor is found under a boulder in a maze level. The Wizard of Yendor does not appear in Hack 1.0.1.

Bestiary Edit

Hack 1.0.1 adds no new monsters. The lurker above is now "'" instead of "~".

The following monsters may be encountered:

Objects Edit

No new objects are introduced in Hack 1.0.1.

Artifacts Edit

Hack 1.0.1 has only one artifact, Orcrist. Any weapon may be named Orcrist and will do d10 extra points damage to orcs. There can even be more than one Orcrist.

In Hack 1.0.2, Orcrist would be limited to two handed swords.

Amulets Edit

Only the Amulet of Yendor and the cheap plastic imitation exist in Hack 1.0.1.

Food Edit

Food items in Hack 1.0.1 are:

The tin did not contain the remains of monsters, but rather a randomly-chosen food such as peaches or, if the adventurer is lucky, spinach.

The dead lizard was a found object rather than a corpse; live lizards did not exist in Hack 1.0.1. It could reduce confusion, but had no effect on cockatrices.

Weapons Edit

Weapons in Hack 1.0.1 are:

Tools Edit

Tools in Hack 1.0.1 are:

The ice box is the only container. Then as now, it preserved corpses, and was generally too heavy (and too rare) to be useful for inventory management.

Armor Edit

Armor items in Hack 1.0.1 are:

Potions Edit

Potions in Hack 1.0.1 are:

Scrolls Edit

Scrolls in Hack 1.0.1 are:

The scroll of damage weapon acts as the modern scroll of enchant weapon does when cursed. The scroll of genocide acts, in all cases, as the modern blessed scroll; but most symbols refer to only one monster anyway.

Wands Edit

Wands in Hack 1.0.1 are:

Rings Edit

Rings in Hack 1.0.1 are:

Because charisma does not exist in Hack 1.0.1, the ring of adornment is a useless item.

Gems Edit

Gems in Hack 1.0.1 are:

and worthless pieces of blue, red, yellow, and green glass.

Other items Edit

Other items not appearing in the above categories are:

It is not possible to pick up an iron chain, nor can they be generated from iron golems, because these do not exist in Hack 1.0.1.

Derivative versions Edit

Hack 1.0.1 inspired two ports to other operating systems, PC Hack 1.0.1 and AmigaHack 1.0.1.
