Hack 'n' Slash is a puzzle action game about hacking. Namely, you need to reprogram object properties, hijack global variables, hack creature behavior, and even rewrite the game’s code. The only way to win is not to play by the rules.
The wizard has mandated that anyone who attempts to locate a sprite and demonstrates his bravery would face certain death. The new laws are for your own protection, but you don’t buy it. You’ll show everyone what “brave” means and, if you’re clever, maybe you will uncover the secret reasons why everything’s gone sideways.
