Description

HacX is a commercial add-on for Doom II. The gameplay is mostly the same - you run through levels, kill monsters and search for a keycard from time to time. The game contains completely new sprites and maps and uses the Doom engine. There are some new features, like destructible objects.

Trivia

Cancelled sequel

Directly after the game's release, development on a predecessor called HacX 3-D (or HaxX 2) was started, but eventually dropped. The complete story can be read on the official website.

Freeware release

Some time after the original release, the add-on was released as freeware download version. In 2010, version 1.2. was released which no longer requires DOOM II to run. As of 2012, a version 2.0 is in development.

Release

The developers rushed the game so it could be released before Quake. Therefore the game was unfinished and unpolished.
