WazHack is a game of discovery, so the information here is just the things you need to know to control and play the game. It is up to you to discover the items and monsters in the game and work out their particular characteristics.
Pay attention to the Boneheaded Tutor in-game (you can reset his tips from the Game Options menu).
You will die a lot, especially when you first start playing. But don't worry - there are so many different items that your next game will always be completely different - maybe an early item will help you greatly, or maybe you will be forced into an entirely new challenge.
