I recently beat the Uplink demo mode, and really enjoyed the hacking
style game. The only thing I see is it could have been more realistic
rather than on point in click tools, they could have had a scripting
language and command line available. Is there any other games similar,
preferably free. I would like them to Linux or at least WINE compatible,
but titles will suffice (I can just check them out in the WINE DB).
P.S. What is a good site with a lot of game listings and links.

I don’t really know of other similar games with the hacking theme,
sorry. But I would refer you over to Defcon which is made in a similar
style (and by the same company). It’s pretty fun and has a nice similar
On the side though I would just like to say that a lot of people have
been complaining about the overly simplistic form that Uplink had, and
while I personally would have liked to see a more console based
approach, I think it would be far more complicated than most
non-developers could really handle and still have fun with it.
I am messing around with BS Hacker: Replay and it has a console based
approach that is really nice. It has simplified Unix-style commands for
file manipulation and downloads and such, in fact other than bouncing it
is console based. Maybe this could be the type of game I could develop
later in my development. It would be cool.
Why not join in the real game? It’s a lot more challenging and fun out
You mean Uplink, or real hacking? I know if you meant real hacking, or
cracking depending on how underground-politically correct you want to
be, you were kidding. I would really like to know about more games of
this genre, it is almost addicting.
I know there was a kind of software version of “decking”, the Shadowrun
(tabletop rpg, not the videogame) version of hacking, but I can’t find
it anymore. And it is probably only interesting if you know Shadowrun.
I have beaten BS Hacker Replay Demo, but would like to know of other
pure hacking games, but anything like that would be appreciated.
