About This File

HACX is an action filled DOOM Engine game. The story is set in the near future, where you'll find yourself engrossed in an international blastfest. Wield weapons of mass destruction from China to Paris to combat a devilish artificial intelligence and its hordes of loyal fanatics. Can you handle it, hacker?

This release is a stand-alone IWAD that does not require DOOM II to run, and is compatible with many popular ports. Release also includes several minor map fixes since v1.1 (making levels fully co-op compatible) and other miscellaneous tweaks.

HACX.WAD can be run either as an IWAD with ZDoom and Eternity or as a PWAD alongside DOOM II using other ports like Chocolate Doom and PRBoom.

For the most part, a solid IWAD to have in your Doom library. Some of the levels do show off some impressive atmosphere and visuals, showing off the world of Hacx with a Cyberpunk theme infested of some nasty monsters and robots. The weapons, while nothing too spectacular, look and sound cool, with the pistol and Uzi being great fun to use. A shame that the last 4-5 levels aren't really good and are obviously rushed out (you can finish MAP16 in less than 1 second) given the game's development history. Still, an interesting IWAD with a style and backstory that holds up a strong identity for the game. I hope to see 2.0 give Hacx the long-awaited vision and execution it needs.

The levels in the middle of the game are truly awesome. I like to replay them from time to time. Looking forward to 2.0.

Originally a commercial addon, this was leater rereleased as freeware. Unfortunately it's lacking the final levels as it was never really finished. Aged extremely well and comes with all changed graphics and sounds, making for a game feeling very different from Doom (except the shooting itself, of course). Can be played as a standalone IWAD, so why are you still reading this?

An add-on. Now an IWAD. It is that good. While the levels are EXTREMELY complex, even for MAP01, just makes the whole thing more unique. The ugly pistol weilding thugs, the robotic shotgun, the fat rocket launcher AND chaingunner and so on. The challenge is pretty sweet. 5/5

Obviously a LOT of effort went into this and it shows, if this was released 10 years ago you'd be picked up by a professional publisher in no time but even then it's a great effort. I got stuck in a room, don't know if this was intended or a bug I also dislike the Ghetto handling of the Uzi LOL. Well done overall! I'll definitely give it another shot.

Hacx is an *okay* game, it's good AND bad. Sprites and weapon concepts are nice but the enemies are annoying and the level layout is boring. -Mikk

An excellent (now-free) 'independent' game from the late 1990s. HACX2 is shaping to be an even better experience.

I guess it starts okay, but the levels get boring and redundant, and the enemies aren't really all that hard and/or interesting. Feels like the designer got bored halfway through and started recycling the levels with minor changes. It shows effort, but feels incomplete and unsubstantial.

      Superb firework display of thousands of fireballs seeming in slow motion because of the vastness - mostly avoidable as they land where you were ages ago; but worth playing just to see it. A HUGE square surrounded by tiers with hundreds of imps and a few others, plus a blockhouse you can enter first to collect ammo.  Fighting through the hundreds of monsters when you get onto the tiers is another matter, overwhelming at UV. I cheated to finish so at least I could review.  Some HOM bugs.

      Laggy hell with 32k monsters and too much invulnerability spheres. Just... total vomit.

      Insanity, with voodoo dolls (see second screenshot).  I get the idea of a shooting gallery if that rocks your boat, but 6000 monsters behind railings- as far as the eye can see, FFS! My PC crawled when I looked towards the invuln spheres (someone said 32 k of them and you can't avoid picking up thousands at a time). In the end I cheated with god mode and no-clipping, and waded in among the chaingunners until I got bored.

      Simple, clearly a first wad.  All on the flat with big, brightly lit, and architecturally implausible rooms. The first map has two rooms, the second map one, and the third map one plus a kind of exit lobby. You can do one of two things - just run past the monsters and finish (I did it in 35 seconds), or have a bit of fun killing the monsters first. No noticable bugs. I hope the author will go on (or went on) to greater things.
