Excellent game, but...
I loved this game from the start to 99% of the way to the finish, since every feature just cried out to me as awesome, but...well, there were some problems too.
-Wait, weren't you in jail?
I don't know if it happened to everyone, but after hacking [Spoiler] at the end, the three hacker buddies came back to...teach their tutorials again? I don't know why it happened, and it actually happened more than once.
The ending, that is. Great! They're exposed! But...uh, we're in hiding anyway? Even though we pierced their deepest secrets and exposed them to the media? Just felt lame.
That said, I would buy a sequel in a heartbeat, and I loved the puzzles enough to buy the add-ons. But those two things held it back from a perfect five-star rating, to me.
Potential to be great
Fun game with a bunch of smaller games inside as well as a bunch of achievements. Unfortunately the game is rather short and the games become repetitive. There's also a real world website that connects with the game - a good idea, but the website isn't working at the moment. To enjoy the full game you have to purchase three expansions as in-app purchases - $0.99 each, which brings the game up to $4. The expansions are basically the same as the rest of the game - no innovation here. While $4 isn't much, there are other games in the App Store that will have more replay value.
Would rate 3-4 stars if the website was working, but since it isn't I'll give it two.
Devs: Make the site work and bring updates with new game modes, add more content to the IAP's and then you'll have a great little game.
The Hacker is amazing. It's clever and tricky and it's got a GREAT storyline. There is so much to DO in this game, I love it! Really, really fantastic. The only downside for me is that I hate in-app purchases and would much rather have paid $5.99 to gain access to everything, or to get future updates! This app is well worth the price, and I have been recommending it to everyone.
I would love to be able to restart/reset the entire game so my sibling can play from the very beginning, too!
