Dungeon Hack is a pseudo 3-D dungeon crawl that creates randomly generated mazes for you to explore. Using Advanced Dungeons & Dragon - 2nd Edition rules, the game will seem familiar to anyone who has played any AD&D SSI games before, like Eye of the Beholder (DOS). There are a wide assortment of monsters, items, spells, weapons, and armor, but only a basic story. All of the work in the game was placed on combat and the randomizer, which is high quality for its time, but because the game lacks a meaningful plot, you will quickly get bored with killing yet another hobgoblin. The mechanics of the game are nicely implemented, and it's a nice way to kill some time.

The soundtrack only consists of three rather tame tracks, and though I've played the game through a couple times, I never heard the song Scene Two. The music can be played on three different platforms. Songs beginning with a 1 are for the Roland MT-32/LAPC-I. Songs beginning with 2 are for the AdLib/Sound Blaster, though they have yet to be recorded. Songs beginning with a 3 are for the PC Speaker.

102 Scene Two James McMenamy 0:50
103 End James McMenamy 0:49
301 Scene One James McMenamy 3:18


Though the credits doesn't differentiate, Anthony Mollick has said in an email that he did the sound effects for the game and James McMenamy did the music.

The XMI files were ripped from the open.res file. There are three types of XMI files, one for the Roland MT-32, one for Adlib, and one for PC Speaker. The PC Speaker only has a single track. The file names come from the descriptions near the end of the open.res file. The Roland MT-32 soundtrack was recorded by saving the SysEx data using MIDI-OX and then playing the XMI files through Winamp to an actual Roland MT-32 and recording the output. The PC Speaker song was emulated and recorded through DOSBox.
