Ever wanted to be a hacker? Play Hack RUN! Hack your way into the heart of a mysterious organization to uncover their secrets. Hack RUN® is a game which uses 'old school' command prompts (like DOS or UNIX) that simulate a real operating system. Learn the commands of each system to help you navigate through your adventure.
As you hack into their systems, you will learn about the organization and the people who work there. Read files and emails to find clues and riddles which will give you access to more accounts. Data found on their systems will help you learn about the motives of the organization, and how dark their plans can get. You may also discover dirty little secrets about the employees as well.
Hacking into new accounts or discovering key information will increase your skill level. As you achieve your goals, you will move closer and closer to the final achievement; over 60 levels deep!
It's time for a Hack RUN!

Great hacking game
After playing games like Hacknet on STEAM i was looking for a cool terminal sim to play on my phone. Hack Run fills the void perfectly. With an interesting story and gameplay that requires you to keeps pushing you to think outside the box, players have no shortage of things to uncover and learn. My only complaint is that the game doesn't have ANY music or sound effects, so its not fully immersive and doesn't create any tension or sense of urgency. But, since its a mobile game you can throw on whatever music you want and just get into it. Really excited to play all the sequels! Must play if you're looking for a fun mobile hacking game!
Fun and Voiceover accessible
I’ve never played a game quite like this, so the premise is original to me. It’s a fun game and I really appreciate that it’s Voiceover accessible. Too many times I’ll hear about a game that intrigues me only to find out that it’s not accessible for those of us using Voiceover. Pleasantly, this was not one of those times. The game is engaging and pretty challenging at times. If you get a bit stuck, the hints are helpful enough that you probably won’t need to use the ‘answer’ command to advance past a level. I wish the game had been a bit longer, but there are sequels, so there’s that.
Developer Response ,
Thanks so much for your feedback! We tried really hard to make sure the game is accessible and are thrilled to hear you enjoyed it. Thanks for playing and we hope you enjoy our other games as well!
The story felt a bit... all over the place if I'm being honest, but it was stil cohesive enough with some interesting twists here and there. Being an IT guy, the gameplay loop of having to type commands to progress was obviously what hooked me in, and the way you discover the exact parameters you need in a specific case made for some pretty interesting puzzles. Overall, I'd recommend it if you know your way around a terminal and are looking for a fun way to pass the time.
