Facts and trivia

Like Rogue, dungeons are randomly generated whenever a new game is started. As a result, virtually no two dungeons generated by the game are identical. SSI claimed that billions of different games are possible. That said, players can play identical dungeons by sharing "dungeon seed" codes that are generated by the game.

Dungeon Hack uses the rules mechanics of AD&D 2nd Edition.
