What's New in Version 1.07
Fixed bug: story missions not starting
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 $15 Prison Architect just to encourage you to keep your legacy alive here. When I talk to friends about gaming, UPLINK is always part of the conversation. I want to continue to be able to show it off and get new friends into this amazing experience!
to anyone on the fence, I honestly recommend playing this on ipad if you can hold off updating to iOS 11.. and find yourself a copy on PC/MAC otherwise as this game is a once in a lifetime kind of immersive gem. I am still finding new ways to play even after 10+ years with this refined classic. You simply have to play this if you ever thought cyberpunk was cool, or imagined the thrill and excitement of hacking the world..
Needs Update Badly!
When starting the game it specifically told me that the developer needs to update this game or it may not work anymore. That's so sad. This game is so cool. Just a simple update and PLEASE add support for iPad Pro keyboard. The iPad Pro is kinda too big to use the on screen keyboard. My thumbs can't even reach the middle and I like having it in my lap with the keyboard propping it up, without having to hold it in my hands all the time. Problem is, if it's in the keyboard holding it up, the game (or any app for that matter) won't bring the on screen keyboard up. Kinda ruins this game. Feel pretty ripped off for 9$. Might get Apple to give me a refund if this isn't fixed soon.
I've purchased this game twice in the past for PC, so I know it's a great game, but this is ridiculous. A resolution option would be nice (if you're going in there and have the time to add that) like there is on PC but that's just wishful thinking.
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!
