Quick Rating: 9 out of 10

What is it?
► This is third game of the game Hack series text-based adventure. It has multiple improvements over the previous two games (Hack Run & Hack Run Zero HD).

Pro:
► Hacking adventure with text-base interface is a perfect match. It provides a simple yet immersive experience.
► Interesting Sci-Fi storyline
► Much improved user interface – streamline “windows” for web browser, hints, achievements keep you in the game without pop-up distraction.
► Never get stuck: In-game hints available to help through difficult levels without spoiling the answer. In case you still stuck, it can show you the answer separately.

Con:
► The developer should disable the pop-ups completely and replace it with inline achievement notifications (optional). Achievement popup (default setting) alerts are interruptive.

In-App Ad:
► None

It’s TIME for a THIRD Hack Run!

Note: Hack Time HD is the third installment in the Hack RUN series. You should try the free version ‘Hack RUN free’ before starting this game.

Once again, your mission is to penetrate a strange organization’s infrastructure to discover their secrets. Your employer needs help discovering who is out to get her and she only trusts you to take on this perilous mission. Hack Time uses old-school prompts (like DOS and UNIX) to access virtual programs and systems. Gain access to users’ files and emails to discover new ways to dig deeper and deeper.

Hack Time HD includes these newly developed interface enhancements:

GAME CENTER SUPPORT
Earn achievements and track your leaderboard score against other players.

CONVENIENT MAIN-MENU POPUP
Enables you to access important content quickly.

CONFIGURE TEXT & BACKGROUND COLORS
Choose from black, white and green.

PERSONAL NOTEPAD
Keep track of where you’ve been with the built-in notepad.

Additional enhancements:
> More “substantial” levels. Earn your way to the final goal.
> Two new modes of communication to “interface” with users.
> More levels than in Hack RUN or in Hack Run ZERO.

The iPad ‘HD’ version contains additional features not found in the standard iPhone game such as functional ‘command’ windows that can be resized and moved around the terminal.

Stuck on a level? Just use the ‘hint’ or ‘answer’ commands to help you along.

Hack Time HD is a game. It is not a tool or aid for learning how to hack into real computer systems. i273, LLC does not endorse hacking.

What’s New in Version 2.0
> Complete offline support including hints and answers
