DynaHack is a variant of NitroHack maintained by Tung Nguyen. It features more content (from UnNetHack) and significant changes to its interface and gameplay compared to NetHack.

It can be downloaded ready-to-play on Windows, and can also be compiled to run on OS X and Linux.

It started life as UnNetHack's content and gameplay transplanted onto NitroHack with its resizing ASCII interface, but has also come to roll in parts of NetHack 4, GruntHack, UnNetHackPlus and a few original changes.

Major Differences from NetHack
