Fight off Gargoyles, Golems, Wraiths and Weredragons with your Dragonclaw, Phoenix rod, Hellstaff and Firemace! This game also introduces a new item system that's become a general must for most games, using with the familiar bracket keys. Items include Wings of Wrath, Polymorph Egg, Chaos Device, Disc of Repulsion, and everyone's favorite Tome of Power, that supercharges your weapons!
H!ZONE is a level/episode pack for Hexen/Heretic. which was released by "Wizard-Works". H!ZONE provides no less than 9 full episodes (despite it's written 12) for Heretic, as well as many standalone levels that are mostly the user-made kind. All episodes are also "Wrath of Magic" compatible. The episodes are pretty hard, and a "Wrath of Magic" mod welcoming changes like the Battleaxe - will indeed make things much more possible and enjoyable. All of those episodes when activated - they replace the THIRD episode of the original Heretic. (The Dome of D'Sparil). When the new episode-wad is loaded, - just start the 3rd episode as usual and you will begin a completely new adventure.
