It's time for a SECOND Hack Run!

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

>>> "...I promise you that today's 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.

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.

This game is extremely fun. You are basically this guy that is trying to hack into a goverment system or something. This is a puzzle game and it really makes you think. You have to complete each task so you can have your wife back because she was kidnapped and you level up all the while you are trying infiltrate this agency and deploy the guys plan. This game is so fun and a little geeky so after 10 minutes you start to get a headache. It is that confusing so i been glued to my computer trying desypher all of the stugg its telling me, and it is FUN. So I defenatly reccomend this game to anyone who likes a challenge!

Great fun!

I really liked the first game, so it is logical to assume that I like this game, and that assumption is true. This game gets to be a lot harder than the original Hack RUN, and some of the puzzles literally don’t have an aparent answer. Word to the wise: try to do this in one go, or copy EVERYTHING into a text document so you know where you left off. Pausing for a day or two and coming back is really hard, because you don’t remember everyones user name or password when you come back to the game. Otherwise its pretty great fun. Highly recommended!

Fun but Cheesy

These games are fun but WOW the writing behind them is bad. Well, at least it is campy and cheesy. Basically it feels like you are playing a 13-year old boy’s fantasy. You even have three girlfriends by the end of the game despite never having actually met any of them. I’m not saying don’t buy this but it is a teenage boy fantasy novel and if that’s cool with you then by all means purchase this and enjoy 3-5 hours of campy fun. The game play is decent and the passwords are either super easy or out of nowhere but it’s fine.

Thanks for your feedback! We needed to ensure the story line was “fun” so players wouldn’t think the game was an actual hacking tool. Also, based on all of the games in the suite, were you able to figure out the main character was actually female? Thanks for playing!
