Description

From the creators of a successful hacker games series (Digital Hazard, BS Hacker, etc) Hacker Evolution is a new hacking simulation game, featuring unparalleled graphics and features.

You play the role of a former intelligence agent, specializing in computer security. When a chain of events sets off worldwide, leaving critical service disabled, you assume the role a computer hacker to find out what happened and attempt to stop it. When a stock market, a central bank, satellite uplink and transoceanic fiber optics links crash, you know this is more then a simple event. Something big is behind all this, and you have to figure out what is it. You hack into computers, look for exploits and information, steal money to buy hardware upgrades in an attempt to put all the pieces of a big puzzle, together.

Set in a virtual operating system environment, the game is packed with all the features required to bring the hacker feeling and experience to every gamer. The concept behind Hacker Evolution is to create a game that challenges the gamer's intelligence, attention and focus, creating a captivating mind game. Solve puzzles, examine code and bits of information, to help you achieve your objectives.

An interesting game

nightassassin1 | Sept. 11, 2013 | See all nightassassin1's reviews »

This game does not actually require knowledge of hacking, teach hacking, or require knowledge of Unix/Linux. The game gives you a tutorial of how things work and what you have to do to efficiently play the game so it is not hard for people who have little knowledge of computers. The game is quite hard and is more of a text puzzler than a hacking simulator, but it is interesting and fun. It tends to make people nervous when you sit near them and play the game, making them think you are actually hacking something. It is kind of fun to see their reaction to it. Personally I am pleased with the game for the price of $1 that I payed. If you can get this game for really cheap then it is a great game to get, but if it is more than $1 or so, I would not buy it. The game is pretty low key and text based.

Hacker game? Gimme that! oh wait…

DeaD | Dec. 11, 2012 | See all DeaD's reviews »

This game returns to the old text based games, so if you want something spectacular, don’t bother. First i thought of something like, oh my god i’m gonna experience something fantastic, a new world will open itself to me. Well it didn’t but the game is fun anyway. Maybe there are not that much commands, and maybe getting into a „database” won’t make you dance, or order a champagne, but it certainly does have a feeling. These were the good. And now for the bad. The game is hard (or at least it was for me [first time at the franchise]), and not that entertaining. Even so i’d say it does, what it wants to, and i do accept it’s uniquness. It is kinda cheap, so it is worth trying, but do think about whether it fits you or not.

Less hacking and more mini-games

Maniacal | Dec. 7, 2012 | See all Maniacal's reviews »

Hacker Evolution is sold as a hacking simulation game but it plays as much more of a series of repetitive mini-games. It is kind of fun for a little while pretending to be some 1337 haxor the novelty wears off as the repetitiveness sets in. It isn't as bad as the hollywood movie and TV show "hacking" scenes, but it isn't really that much better either. The aesthetic design is lacking as well, there wasn't much worth taking a screenshot of. If you are really into pretending to be a hacker it will certainly be fun for a while at least though.

Dissapointing

oginer | Nov. 10, 2012 | See all oginer's reviews »

I wouldn't call this a hacking simulation. It just looks like one, at first sigh at least, until you find out the minigames involved in hacking, which are just generic minigames that don't have anything to do with hacking.

So if you like minigames with dome interesting setting and plot about hackers, get it, but if you expect a hacking simulator like uplink (or even the first Hacker Evolution game) the this is not the game you're looking for.

Easier than Uplink.

zhack075 | Sept. 3, 2012 | See all zhack075's reviews »

this game is fun to play. I'm not a hacker but it's still nice todive in this particulary atmosphere of hacking. To my mind this game is easier than uplink but remains challenging. If you want a nice puzzle game and you like those kind of universe this game is made for you. If you want something more challenging try uplink.
