Dungeon Hack is a computer game released in 1993. It was developed by DreamForge Intertainment and published by Strategic Simulations, Inc. for MS-DOS and NEC PC-9801.


An adventurer is sent by an evil sorceress on a mission to find and retrieve a mysterious magical orb located within an ancient dungeon.


Strategic Simulations, Inc. claimed that "over 4 billion" different dungeons were possible.[1] Dungeon Hack uses the rules mechanics of AD&D 2nd Edition. Permadeath is an option.

The game features a pseudo-3D game screen based on Eye of the Beholder series. Since dungeons are randomly generated whenever a new game is started, virtually no two dungeons generated by the game are identical. Players can play identical dungeons by sharing "dungeon seed" codes that are generated by the game.
