List of Items in ZAPM

This page gives a list of items found in ZAPM and some minimal information about them, including base prices.

In ZAPM, price offered is not influenced by charisma - you can't charm a robot, after all. Selling prices are always 1/10 of base prices, and buying prices are always base prices.

One convenient feature is that unlike nethack, any type of shop will buy any item. So you can price ID your canisters in a computer shop, for instance.

Caveat: the ZAPM items do not necessarily behave exactly like the "Nethack Analogs" given below.

Table of floppy disks

Floppy disks in ZAPM appear as ? and are roughly analogous to nethack scrolls. They are unusable without a computer. If the computer is buggy, it may eat the disks. Like nethack, some floppy disks have different effects according to "BUC" status and if the hero is confused.

Floppy disks may be reused; under normal circumstances there is a chance of the "license expiring" and the disk disappearing, otherwise it stays in inventory and may be reused.

Floppy Disk Cost Nethack analog Effects While confused
Bug Detection 25 n/a buggy: reveals itself to be buggy; debugged: reveals items in inventory which are buggy; optimized: reveals bugginess status of every item in inventory reveals insects on the level

Hacking 300 n/a attempts to "crack" a floppy disk, which if successful gives unlimited usage with a risk of summoning a lawyer (L). Cracking hacking requires excessive leveling (25+), programming skill, intelligence and luck. n/a

Table of canisters

Canisters appear as ! and are roughly equivalent to nethack potions. However, ZAPM canisters have no effect when thrown. Some may be applied as well as quaffed. If you have a canister of superglue stuck to your tongue you are unable to quaff anything.

A useful observation is that all canisters worth 50 buckazoids have positive effects. Also, any canister costing 75 buckazoids will help you with alien impregnation.

Canister Cost Nethack analog Effects
Beer 5 Potion of booze confusion for 2d50 turns; cures fright and grants fear immunity while character stays confused
Super Glue 5 n/a Sticks to your tongue and makes you look ridiculous (-4 charisma). If this gets you cha stat to zero or worse you die by embarrassment. Eventually falls off. Apply to repair items or robots.

Table of armor

Types of armor in ZAPM are: jumpsuit, body armor, helmet, belt, goggles.

Armor class works differently than nethack. 10 is naked and worn armor increases this number, so equipping something with armor class 1 results in character AC of 11. As in nethack, armor can be enhanced (enchanted), and enhancement may be negative.

Powered armor carries its own weight, and is effectively weightless when worn (but not when carried.)

Although belts have randomized appearance, there is currently only one type implemented (shield belt.)

Psionic modifier affects chance of mutant power use. This is analog to NetHack's metal armor spellcasting penalty.

Table of ray guns
