- Hacker -

Back in the 80's computers were much simpler than today's Ghz machines and many people feared some kid would hack into a mainframe and cause a war or something. There was a movie made about that called wargames and in this game you are put into a similar situation where you log onto an unknown server and are put in control of what looks like a remote control robot.

Before you are given control of the robot you have to answer a few questions about it's parts and if you get them correct you will pass security. After you get the robot you quickly realize it is a vehicle that can travel all over the world using underground tunnels and you get a message that spies have taken pieces of a shredded document about the magma project. It is up to you to recover the pieces by buying them or by trading items for them. Agents in different cities will accept different items and you'll have to find out what they want in order to get the entire document back. You only start with a set amount of money so any extra items will have to be gained from someone who will accept hard cash.

This is easier than it sounds because the tunnels don't go from a straight line from one city to another and you'll have to find out the paths to travel yourself. You can only travel in a straight line so you cannot find out where the next turn is going until you get there. All the travelling and trading takes a lot of time and there is a time limit to completing the game so don't expect to complete the game in a single go.

Hacker is quite a unique game and apart from it's sequel there hasn't really been a game that involves hacking into other systems. It's this uniqueness that sets it apart because don't expect much from the graphics and sounds as they are below average at best. The only flaw is that much of the game is trial and error while you try to get the correct items for the different spies but other than that it's quite an enjoyable game.

Overal rating: 7.5/10
