The colony ship, Maximus XV was on course. This was supposed to be an uneventful trip. No one on board expected the gravitational entity. It quickly swallowed Maximus XV.
The colony ship and its passengers were trapped but not alone. Ships loaded with creatures of unknown species have been trapped for years. They have learned how to survive by feeding on newcomers.
They quickly attacked Maximus XV, taking over one colony biosphere after another. The passengers were caught unaware and barely put up any resistance against the merciless invaders.
The last biosphere was different. With impromptu weapons colonists managed to fight off the attack, but they were still under siege, surrounded by countless enemies. Now, the only way to get out of this alive is to get to the emergency capsule and use their powerful engines to break free from the Nebula. But the capsule is at the other end of the ship and the path leads through all the biospheres, now colonized by alien creatures.
This is a one person job. Only the best of the best will have any hope. Hope has a new name – Space Hack.

Space hack is a diablo clone, about a terraforming ship that was lost in space, and got invaded by a bunch of space cockroaches. Fortunately, among the ships occupants is wolverine, who is in incognito for some reason, that's why he never pops his claws, heals, or takes off that ridiculous eye patch. He struggles at first, but then, he uncovers a conspiracy, when an npc tells him he was the traitor all along...at the first time you meet him, because of a bug. Then he just stands there after his villain laugh, and you have to continue like nothing happened. So yeah, this game is ugly, buggy, and at times even boring. It could be very interesting, it certainly has a great setting, which could have many great stories in it...but it isn't. Instead you are killing the zerg, with medieval weapons in space, because the sci-fi weapons have scarce ammo, and the don't do that much damage anyway. Oh, and there is no autosave either, so when a never before seen enemy bites your head off, and you forgot to save...well i deleted the game at that point, but i guess, it's your choice how to go from there :)
Ok I picked this up awhile back when it was free on steam for a day. I really was not expecting anything out of it due to the dated graphics, controls, and the fact that you have to save a lot. However, this is actually worth the $5 bucks you might pay for it. If you want a touch of nostalgia for the games of your youth that were unrelenting and straight up made you cry because you forgot to save. Well this is definitely the one. It just does not care about how long it just took you to get to that next questline. You are merely fodder for the onslaught that is coming at you.
It may look it would be a fun hack&slash to waste a few hours with, but in reality you will get less gameplay than you may think. The gameplay is very standard, it adds no new ideas, is very basic and offers almost no challenge. Everything about this game is mediocre at best. Weapons, abilities, tactics. They are all basic, not inspired and offer the same thing you saw multiple times done better elsewhere. The only good thing is that at such a low price you may still get hour or two of fun from it, but that's all.
Space Hack is a fast placed shooter game, in which you need to face a LOT of levels, enemies, bosses, power-ups etc. Graphics are outdated of course, but the core game is rewarding and entertaining, even if the experience is maybe too long, becoming repetitive after a while. But it's cheap, so give it a try.
This is a competent and somewhat enjoyable futuristic top-down shooter in the vain of Diablo and its contemporaries. Imagine replacing spells for rocket launchers and that's basically what you get. It's fine for the kind of game it is, and it's a fairly long game, but it totally lacks ion originality. For the price, it's worth playing, but if you're only valuing time and play this type, it's mediocre.
