NetHack 3.0.1 is the sixth public release of NetHack and the second by the DevTeam. Izchak Miller published it to the Usenet newsgroup comp.sources.games and the moderator approved it in August 1989.

Availability

The original Usenet postings are most easily obtained from UUNet at [1]. The partXX.Z files in that directory are NetHack 3.0.0; patch* files are the patches for succeeding versions through NetHack 3.0.10.

Ali Harlow[2] has a NetHack 3.0.1 distribution at [3].

Significant changes

The NetHack 3.0 series is notable for its frequent releases, and NetHack 3.0.1 came out only weeks after NetHack 3.0.0. This is perhaps because NetHack 3.0.0 so vastly expanded the game that it contained many bugs.

Notable new features include:

  • The Atari ST build is reworked to use GCC rather than the less-capable Lattice C compiler. The Lattice C build is still available to those who need it.
  • The nameable fruit becomes a compile-time option, controlled by the TUTTI_FRUTTI symbol. If TUTTI_FRUTTI is not defined, the nameable fruit does not exist, and the slice of pizza is restored from NetHack 2.3e in its place.
  • Permanent levitation and permanent blindness become major trouble that prayer can heal.
  • Lots of bugs are fixed, and workarounds are provided for broken and underpowered compilers.

The adventurer

The player may choose from these roles:

Role Alignment
Archeologist Lawful
Barbarian Chaotic
Cave-(wo)man Lawful
Elf Lawful
Healer Lawful
Knight Lawful
Priest(ess) Neutral
Rogue Chaotic
Samurai Lawful
Tourist Neutral
Valkyrie Chaotic
Wizard Neutral

All classes permit male and female adventurers, except the Valkyrie which must be female.

The adventurer has experience, hit points, magical energy, armor class, alignment, and the six major attributes. He may advance to experience level 30.

The initial pet is a little dog for Cavemen, a kitten for Wizards, and a random choice of the two for all others.

Dungeon features

The dungeon in NetHack 3.0.1 has no branches; there is one way up and one way down. The first 25 levels or so consist of rooms, and beyond that, the adventurer encounters the Castle and then mazes. The deepest dungeon level is 50.

Medusa appears as '@' on the down-stairs of the level before the Castle. She does not have a special level, and is thus a snare for the unwary adventurer.

Dungeon levels below the Castle are designated as "Hell". Entering hell without fire resistance, or losing it once there, is an instadeath. This may happen by taking off an item that confers fire resistance (ring of fire resistance or red dragon scale mail), losing one's polymorph, or by being hit by a gremlin. One may still be saved if he has some other source of fire resistance. These levels have only up-stairs, and the only way to proceed beyond the first level after the Castle is by level teleportation.

Special rooms are:

Special features are:

Traps are:

The Amulet of Yendor is found in the posession of the Wizard of Yendor in a maze level. He is in a small room in the center of the maze, surrounded by water and accompanied by a hell hound and a vampire lord.

Fake Wizard rooms contain a random demon prince instead of the Wizard and a fake Amulet. If all demon princes have appeared, a demon lord appears instead; if all demon lords have appeared, the room contains a random ordinary demon. All eight modern named demons exist, but their modern lairs do not.

A wand of wishing is guaranteed in the Castle, in its modern position; but it lies exposed on the floor instead of being protected by a chest and Elbereth.

When ascending from level 1 with the Amulet of Yendor, one is transported immediately to the Astral Plane; the Elemental Planes do not yet exist. The Astral Plane is different from the modern game, having mazes and powerful monsters instead of the denizens of the modern version.
