Hack Run ZERO

By i273, LLC

Open iTunes to buy and download apps.


It's time for a SECOND Hack Run!

Note: Hack Run ZERO is a prequel to the app 'Hack RUN'. You should try the free version 'Hack RUN free' before starting this game.

>>> "...I promise you that today's free hacking game for the iPhone is worth the look. It's called Hack Run ZERO, and here's why you need to check it out..." -

Test your skills again as you hack your way through strange and secretive organizations to discover their hidden agendas! Hack Run ZERO uses old school prompts (like dos and unix) to help you navigate from system to system. As you access users' accounts, you'll discover more and more about the organizations and the people that work there.

Your adventure begins when you receive a disturbing ransom note about a loved one. Your only way to set them free is to follow the kidnapper's shady demands. Once again your mission is to penetrate the maze of computer accounts through the use of your hacking skills. The stakes run high as you uncover more and more of the enemy's diabolical plan; and with over 70 levels there's no guessing how it will all end!

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

Make sure to play the THIRD game in the trilogy called Hack Time after you complete this game!

Hack Run ZERO 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.

Customer Reviews

Story is horrible

The original hack time had an intricate, rather well-written story to go along with its innovative commands. ZERO completely ruins all of that immersion with some of he most unbelievably bad writing from start to finish; it genuinely feels like a middle school student who saw one too many bad spy movies wrote it. The introductory messages are hilariously bad! Wallbangers abound, starting with a ticket system that doesn't include usernames and a ditzy woman wanting to take an unknown, unseen new coworker out for drinks in exchange for resetting a password.

The controls are similar but more streamlined here - simpler, but less believable, with every system using the same commands this time.

Loses one more star for not being universal, like the original.

Loved it!!!

First app I've given 5 stars!!! The story is hilarious and really fun to go through. Makes me wish text based games were still popular. I love the characters in these stories too, very fun and I couldn't stop laughing at several points. Well worth the money!!


I've never written a review for anything but I had to for this. I loved it, I haven't played the others but I'm dying to now. My only problem was finishing it too quickly (couple hours). If you play- use the notepad, woulda made my life so much easier!
