A downloadable game

After playing "Hack and Slash" on a BBS sometime ago I felt the need to write my own version of that game. So I give you "Hack and Slay - stickman version" for the Amiga. :) It should run on almost any Amiga with a minimum resolution of 640*400 running AmigaOS 3.x.

Main features of the game:

  • Turn based
  • 2 difficulty levels
  • 4 playable characters classes.
    - Knight: Makes more damage.
    - Thief: Less risk of getting hit when attacked.
    - Wizard: Can cast spells.
    - Serf: Can give first aid.
  • Auto-map
  • 5 levels to explore
  • Very small. Less than 100 kB
  • Written in Blitz Basic

Minimum requirements:

  • 1 MB RAM
  • 640*400 resolution 
  • 68020 14MHz
  • AmigaOS 3.x
  • And an Amiga :) (real or emulated)

  • Bugfixes

Hi, thanks for the screenshot. 

If you do have some spare time, maybe you can add a clean screenshot of the gaming window only? :) Thanks.

Sure thing. Consider it done! :)

Thanks :) It's looking clear now and the focus is on the game, not on your desktop :)
