Near perfect adaptation of this classic on iPad
Big thanks to Introversion for making such an incredible port of this PC classic. One of my favorite games of all time and the most replayable game I've ever played. This is still after years my favorite game to play on ipad. now that I am finally upgrading to a pro 10.5 inch from my trusty Air 1 I am worried that my favorite goto game on my ipad will not work with the new iOS version 11!!
Please update this priceless contribution to PC and iOS gaming immersion and keep it alive in glorious 64 bits!! Also, please add bluetooth keyboard/smart-keyboard integration so that the popup keyboard to deepen immersion and permit use of the whole display!
I will immediately buy the full $15 Prison Architect just to encourage you to keep your legacy alive here. When I talk to friends about gaming, UPLINK is always part of the conversation. I want to continue to be able to show it off and get new friends into this amazing experience!
to anyone on the fence, I honestly recommend playing this on ipad if you can hold off updating to iOS 11.. and find yourself a copy on PC/MAC otherwise as this game is a once in a lifetime kind of immersive gem. I am still finding new ways to play even after 10+ years with this refined classic. You simply have to play this if you ever thought cyberpunk was cool, or imagined the thrill and excitement of hacking the world..
An old Favorite and a nice welcome to the iOS!
On PC, this game was a great hacker simulator and a great challenge offering a hours of fun time, thanks to it's nice missions and challenges as well as the need to keep the missions going to upgrade your gateway every now and then to step up to the bigger challenges.
On iOS, the game is almost identical to it's PC counterpart. with the mouse replaced by the touch screen controls which offers a faster interaction to the game's objects. Routing your connection through multiple point to delay your back-trace is is faster and you can quickly disconnect if you are too close to getting busted!
One thing I wish was added was the add-ons. on PC, this game had a great support from community, brining amazing additions to the game. From Insane level of Gateways that you need to work so hard to afford its 100+ CPU slots to the Extra sort of DLC (the FBI was by far my favorite)
Overall, a great game to enjoy and a nice addition to the iOS gaming library!
This game captures both the style and the feel of living in an 80's hacker movie. Having played the demo on PC, I knew this would be good for bite-sized play sessions. The minimalist graphics and extensive use of text evoke the separation of someone whose only connection to the rest of the world is a computer screen. At first thrilling, due to the tight mission timing, and later haunting, as I found myself adrift in a digital sea, this game is one of a kind. Anyone who enjoys racing against the clock, assembling an arsenal of tools, and the thrill of an illicit job well done will enjoy this game.
