About the Game

You play an Uplink Agent who makes a living by performing jobs for major corporations. Your tasks involve hacking into rival computer systems, stealing research data, sabotaging other companies, laundering money, erasing evidence, or framing innocent people.

You use the money you earn to upgrade your computer systems, and to buy new software and tools. As your experience level increases you find more dangerous and profitable missions become available. You can speculate on a fully working stock market (and even influence its outcome). You can modify peoples academic or criminal records. You can divert money from bank transfers into your own accounts. You can even take part in the construction of the most deadly computer virus ever designed.

Uplink. Where do I start?
It’s got such great game-play; it was inspired by Hollywood hacking scenes where the character or antagonist rapidly types at keys in vain hope to cause lots of damage. And given its base, it fulfils it well. It has high passed action scenes where you’re screaming at your screen to rapidly crack the password while trying not to get caught. Who says that you need the latest 3D graphics to engage someone in a game? I mean yes Battlefield 4 looks pretty but it will never be able to tell a story like Thomas Was Alone. If you can look beyond the dated graphics then you’ll see a great game. I think it was such a great first game for Introversion and can’t wait to see how Prison Architect turns out to be!
Overall, I think that everyone should give this classic ago, grab it while it’s on offer. It’ll be a decision that you won’t regret, trust me.

For the ones who likes HHackers titles, this is a great one. It is a text based game, released originally in 2001. The game puts you as a Elite Hackers, with lots of tasks to do, hacking computers all around the world. Most Recommended.

This game is very interesting. You work as an agent for a company that basically hacks into other folks' computers/servers to do a variety of tasks that you accept to earn money to upgrade your hacking capabilities. While the concept is fun, it does get tedious. Having to bounce your connection from many different places, disconnecting and connecting to the main server, and repeated assignment types get old pretty quickly. However, if you can get past that, then you have found yourself a little gem of a game. 8/10
