Best intro to a video game ever - it just dumps you at a logon prompt and off you go! Check it out in an emulator (or hack it into the Commodore 64 app...)

Just want to add that I'm an old-school Uplink player myself. Someone really needs to port that to iOS.

Never noticed this one until now, was hoping it was uplink related myself. What I'd really like a port of though is this it's basicly an updated uplink with a few new ideas. It does have a very simplified version on the store already not worth bothering with it in my opinion.

Might give this game a look anyway.

I don't mean to sound bitter, cold, or cruel, but I am, so that's how it comes out

Well ask and you shall receive. That game you posted a link for is coming to ios "soon"
I emailed the company a few weeks ago (because I thought it would make a cool iOS game) and they replied saying its nearly done and will be coming to ios soon. :-)

the last 4 machines gave you a number sequence that had an x in it. work out what the X's are supposed to be in each sequence....


A great little game, had difficulty in putting it down. However I didnt personally think the extra networks were good value for money.

I believe it states something like each network has 5 new machines with 6 new protections. This was rather misleading as there is actually not anything new there at all but the same type of puzzles encountered in the game itself.

When you also factor in the price of each additional network is the same as the game itself but offers only 5 machines, while they were fun, they didnt really seem worth the cost.

Hmm... for some reason, I can't get the password on the website to do anything when I enter it in. Is anybody else experiencing this?

Worked just fine for me... access it from the game and try again; not much else could be done I think.

I love pixel art!
