Hexen is a multiplatform first-person shooter. It is the sequel to the id Software game, Heretic. It resembles Doom, but with more swords and sorcery. However, unlike Doom, the player can look up and down.
Players control one of three characters, each with their own class: Baratus, a warrior, Parias, a cleric, and Daedolon, a mage. Each character has a different weapon set and different strengths. The goal is to go through the levels, defeat the three warlords, and then defeat Korax. Korax is a demon who has taken over the world.
A single save game file on the N64 version requires ninety pages of the memory card, far more than most other games.
