Hack for iPad is released, based on the original 1.0.3

As requested by readers, this Hack prototype you might have glanced over a year ago on this blog is now cleaned up and got approved by Apple. It’s now available on the app store. It’s based on a BSD version of Hack 1.0.3 published by Andries Brouwer, which in turn is based on Jay Fenlason’s Hack.

Please be aware that this is a very old game (originally published in 1985), lacking many of the refinements of the latest and greatest NetHack 3.4.3.

If that doesn’t deter you from buying it, please make sure to let me know by mail or in the comments of any problems you encounter that are platform-related.
