Ever wanted to be a hacker? Play Hack RUN! Now with Apple Watch support! 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 50 levels deep!

It's time for a Hack RUN!

Apple Watch support! Now you can display the recent contents of the terminal on your watch, view your achievements and view tips and help.

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

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

Customer Reviews


*SPOILERS* I though it was great. A very authentic experience with a cool system. The system seemed real, and the hacking commands are as close to the real thing as some can get. It seemed real. The story was good, but started heading down hill. Loved it, then they made it, Aliens. They had what could have been a great hacking story with what could have been great twist. But a cheap alien backstory took the front seat. It ruined it for me. It seemed like it could have been a realistic hacking experience, now I'm hesitant on getting the others.

Fun, worth playing

I'd have given 4 stars were not for the aliens part of the story.

It's a good puzzle game. Difficulty of levels are moderate, the console and command feel real, love the first half of the play, I almost started to feel like I'm really hacking sth, until the aliens shows up.

It seems like a joke to me, I mean, any hollywood no brainer like corrupt CIA and stuff is better than aliens…Apparently the play writer wasn't paid well so s/he gave up halfway.


Good game idea, but really I feel like it could have been done better. There's no real way to explain it but I feel like another designer could have made this game so much better. Also I found it very hard to pick back up where I left off after a while. I personally want my money back but other people do like it.
