Ever wanted to be a hacker?

Great fun! - I just finished Hack RUN, what a great game! I'm a big fan of interactive fiction and this is a wonderful example of how the genre can be expanded and still be current.

BRILLIANT - This game is innovative, clever and a HUGE breath of fresh air...

This is AWESOME!!! - This game us so cool that I stopped texting my girlfriend to play it haha :P

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!

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

If you own the free version of Hack RUN, note that this full version is AD FREE.

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

Make sure to play the SECOND, THIRD and FOURTH games in this series called Hack Run ZERO, Hack Time and Hack NET after you complete this game!

Great news! Hack RUN® has been featured in the App Store! We are thrilled Apple has given us this honor, and we hope you enjoy it as much as they do!

Most creative!

As someone who enjoys hacking/programming this game is absolutely #1. No hacking skills necessary but it is a plus. This was the most creative and enjoyable game I have played on my iphone to date. I completed the game sadly in a day (Engrossed playtime). I wish it was longer, even though it WAS thoroughly in-depth. Thank you for creating and sharing and I am now going to look for more like this game from this maker. Hopefully there are more. Please please please continue producing them!
5star A+++++

Great game

I've been looking for a game like this for a while. It's almost perfect it gives you the hacker feeling you're looking for and the difficulty is just right, it's neither too easy nor too hard. It had a problem, when you go to main menu and return to the game again sometimes the screen acts like there is no keyboard while there is! Therefore you can't see the text under the keyboard.

Surprisingly fun

I was delightfully surprised at how fun this game was. Recommended for anyone who is a bit of a computer geek and likes mysteries and solving them. The only ding I'll give this game is for the overplayed sexual overtones. It wasn't necessary for the plot, and If toned down a bit, I would have gladly let my kids play this game. As it was, I had to delete it upon completion to keep curious eyes away...
