Description (by Raven Software)

HeXen... Beyond evil. Beyond hope. Beyond Heretic. While you were battling the evil forces of D'Sparil, the other Serpent Riders were busy sowing the seeds of destruction in other dimensions. Now, three brave souls have sworn to crush the evil regime that threatens to destroy the world forever. Find Korax's stronghold, destroy him and restore order in the physical world.

Cheats (by

To use a cheat code in most versions of Hexen, one simply types the code while playing (this also applies while in automap mode). After the last letter has been entered, a message of acknowledgement will appear at the top of the screen. The status bar and ingame view may also change, depending on the effects of the code.

bgokey: Makes the player immune to all damage excluding teleport frags, spikes, and fall damage from extreme heights ("God mode").
sgurno: Sets health to 100%.
rjohnson: No clipping (the player can walk through walls, characters, and obstacles, climb high ledges instantly, and pass through items and across all tagged linedefs with no effect).
cstika: Carnage; Kills all monsters on the current level.

Second time: full automap with items and enemies.
Third time: back to normal.

kschilder: Display sound debug info.
