Om dette spil

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.

I played this game back in early 2000 and really liked it.
Bought the game now over 10 Years later and still enjoys playing it - Timeless Classic!

The gameplay is tricky, but once you start to understand the game you'll have a ton of fun. I first played this game in my basement in 2007 or so, not even a teenager yet I think. Receiving the box and looking at the secret message behind the cover insert was exciting, and discovering the secret files hidden on that CD are some of my fondest memories as a kid. Even though Uplink is just a "hollywood-style" hacking game, it's not as unrealistic as some, and it's probably part of why I'm currently a senior in college and will be earning two degrees in IT in May next year.

Oh yeah, and the SOUNDTRACK IS AMAZING. I cannot stress enough just how beautiful this soundtrack is, I still listen to it nearly a decade later!

I've been playing text games since that's all there was. So when I saw this up for sale, a long while back, I couldn't have cared less about the lack of graphics. Honestly, graphics would only ruin this game. It's a hacking game. It's a break your way into someone's system, or network, then steal, alter, or break whatever your mission calls for, get out clean, get paid and buy upgrades. Breaking in can be a challenge, but even more so is making sure to cover your tracks so no one catches you, all of which becomes increasingly difficult as go progress. Do I like this game? Absolutely. I've gladly started this game over dozens of times after being busted for not covering my tracks, or not getting out of a system before they traced me.

If you're into increasingly difficult puzzle games, and the idea of being a hacker, this is the game for you. If not, try it anyways. It's a great game at a ridiculously cheap price.

I liked Hacknet better, its more modern and its more immersive (has typing as well as an interface to click, made me feel like a real hacker.)

Following all the good reviews of Uplink (inside Hacknets reviews) i went ahead and got it
I do not reccomend this game, I ended up refunding it.

I got this game in a bundle with Prison Architect, I thought it was just going to be another trash game to add to my collection, so it sat collecting dust in my library. Eventually, I got to playing it, it was a boring afternoon and I had nothing to do. But man, I was suprised by how good this game is. At first, I was very confused, I played for a bit, and eventually got the hang of it. It's a fun game to play, but takes a while to get the hang of. I'm just sad I accidentally bought a 80 ghz cpu aftering buying a 150 ghz cpu in the game, rip all my money.......

Uplink is a hacking game with a simple concept: "The server has type X security system of level Y, so i need an anti-X program of level Y or higher."

Basically, you're an agent working for Uplink, an organization for freelance hackers worldwide, with services like news, Mission bulletinboard (where you get most of your contracts, jobs, etc.,) and a variety of upgrades including software, hardware and gateway upgrades. By following the news one can inspect what is going on, and can possibly even see one's own actions seen on the news.

The story is fairly simple, a company named ARC is seen doing some suspicious stuff and raises suspicions on the news and between hackers. Later on we see the #1 hacker of Uplink message the player (and every other agent,) telling that when they receive the message, they would be already dead. He then gives a password to an ARC server and wishes them good luck. The player has the choice of involving in the story, starting a "quest", or completely disregarding the message from the now late agent, essentially skipping the main story altogether.

I see alot of similarities between this game and Hacknet, but the biggest difference is probably the focus of the two games. Hacknet involves a lot of story, while in Uplink it is rather lackluster, as there is more focus on the gameplay.

The gameplay is simple. You buy some software and run them. However, once you start them up, the server will begin a trace. One needs to "bounce" connections between servers to make a huge "link," so that it takes longer to trace. When you are hacking into a server, they will start an active trace. When you disconnect, they will begin a passive trace, trying to use the "bounce" connection logs to figure out where you are, giving the player a responsibility to remove logs from bounced connections.

The game is very punishing. In the start, when the player does something as simple as deleting files, when they fail a bill comes in the form of an email, telling you to send funds to said account. However, when it is about changing criminal records, hacking bank accounts and destroying computer systems, the federal agents come in. When you are traced to your gateway location, they go out and search for it. This forces Uplink to disavow all information about the player, essentially resulting in a game over.

However, i find the game quite entertaining, as once you progress, the stakes become higher and higher, but hacking becomes easier and easier. One slip-up grants a game over, so you have to be careful of everything you do. I have lost the game multiple times trying to get bank funds from one account to mine. Once you see your mistake, you learn from it, and you become a better player, know what to do so that this or that doesn't happen again.

I recommend this to people who really like something punishing, those who are determined to become a hacker that no one has yet seen. Those who are looking for challenges: the start may be a little hard, but after that it's easy peasy.

I rate this game 9/10.

The greatest hacking sim ever created. It is still an excellent game a decade later with plenty of replayability. You can even find mods on modlink with loads of changes and additional content.

So you found this in your recomended tab or searched for hacking games because you want to play a cool hacking game. If so then Uplink is the game for you, from what i have seen on steam this may be the best hacking game for sale... and its over ten years old! Now that I am done my shpeal here are the pros and cons (As is necessary for any game review)

Great and immersive world
Amazing story
Deaths dont feel cheap*
You feel like a badass hacker when your hacking is reported on the news
Strangely enjoyable paranoia and stress
Endless replayability
You can tell the devs put their heart and soul into this

When starting out percieved difficulty is increadibly high (Before realising I needed a log deleter I thought the game was unfairly killing me)*
Roguelike this can be a turnoff for some people
No ability to undelete files if you are carefull this is a non issue (Accidentaly deleted Faith)
Some items can be a bit pricy
Teaser about Uplink 2 (Multiplayer hacking into other peoples Uplink stuff)... Uplink 2 will sadly never be released

All in all this is 100X better as a hacking game than watchdogs or (Insert relevent hacking game here) and is much less expensive. Now then I have to go deal with some government agents knocking at my door...

This game is quite a difficult game to understand, but once you get into it, it REALLY gets exciting.

With different software types, server types and the possibility of being fined or even disavowed (where your account is terminated) it all makes for one interesting game.

I reccomend this because of the fact that it is extremely fun to play.

LOVE the game, but seriously, why did you include the Mission Impossible: II(2)/MI2 Theme Song at the very beginning of the trailer? (If you didn't notice, it's just a 3 second tune at the beginning of the trailer.) Anyways, the game was awesome!
I don't care that this game was released back when 2000 was popular. Infact, that's the whole reason I got the game. It has a old-fashioned look, and I love(notice I didn't put "ed") old-fashioned games. I remember the day windows 95 got released too. But I recomment this game to everyone. Just because it was released 10 years ago, doesn't mean it isin't good.

Finally after years of training online and offline, Hours of guides, Hours of grinding, Suffering. Regret always in the back of my mind for the time wasted on this. It has officially happened. I am a master hacker. Rushing through the logs deleting with the percision of a scalpel, never wasting a moment dedicated to filling my billion dollar bank account with more money. Trying to simulate the initial rush of robbing a bank. I rush in with a bounce network all around the world starting with InterNIC. I quickly start up my timer and turn on the proxy and firewall Disable tools. Brute force but neccesary for speed. It shuts off and I run the admin account I had stolen from early contacts. I'm in I copy all the accounts down, I find the prize i'm looking for. Killian Hoyal, a 967 million dollar account, a legend hidden inside of my personal gameworld. It had taken years of searching and doing favors to gain the proper knowledge to find this account. Quickly I delete disconnect from the server and rush into my log database at InterNIC, deleting all traces of my connection. Yes, I had finally found everything I would need to stage the largest bank robbery in the history of the world. From the comfort of my home. I go and make an anonymous bank account under a pseudonym. The bank is small so it wouldn't be a high priority target to search if the FBI caught onto my trail. Finally I take a deep breath, 4 minutes 11 seconds says my timer. Wasting no time I quickly connect to the bank where Killian Hoyals money is kept. Running bypasses, disablers, and all manners of illicit software designed to slow down any one looking for me, and to make sure I don't leave a trace. I log into his account using the details I found from the admin account. I go into transfer funds and make the trade to my bank account in Monrovia, Liberia. The transfer goes through. I go into his transaction logs and edit the log showing the money was sent to another hackers that had previously done me harm earlier on. I disconnect and reconnect to my account in Liberia. The money is there, perfect. I go into my transaction logs and delete the log showing the money recieved. Almost done, I connect to my home bounce and log into the logs. I delete the log showing me connecting to the banks in the first place. Just like that, his money is mine with no trace to be found of it. A job well done, I am officially. A master hacker.

Set in the "future" of 2010 (Yep, that old) you play as an Uplink Agent. It starts with you "connecting" to the Uplink Servers to create your new hacker identity. After a fake-but-believable-ish "boot up" you are directly connected to your remote proxy gateway, and ready for some plausibly deniable crime. This isn't real hacking, but the way the game presents itself you don't need too much imagination or suspend too much disbelief to leave an exciting doubt in the back of your mind. Easily the most immersive game I have ever experienced.

The game is completely open-ended and very complex, but approachable (There is even an in-game IRC that connects you to a real-life Uplink chatroom to talk to others in the game, if someone happens to be on it at the time.). It gives you an optional, basic tutorial risk-free on one of the Uplink Corporation's testing servers, and there are further tutorials on Uplink's main server, but after that you are left to your own ingenuity. That's a common, repeating theme of this game. Experiment, have some fun. You hacked into the social security database for your last job, what about doing it again to mark yourself as "deceased" to really become a ghost, or hack the criminal records database and put a warrant for arrest out on a server admin that made things difficult for you. In fact, the only way to "beat" this game, is to "break" it. You won't find any "questlines" or the like until you are experienced enough think a bit outside your usual targets...

One of the few games that makes missions non-linear, simply because these aren't missions, they are contracts. A deal between you and an anonymous individual working on behalf of a random company. You can go ahead and tell your employer "Nope, not in the mood, have someone else do it." after you accept the contract... for half the pay up front! (Although, good luck getting another job if your reputation is too spotty!) Perhaps someone paid you to give the guy an A, and on a whim (and after your paycheck), you put his "D-" right back. What about this investigation of corporate corruption? You have it all tied up, got your pay and everyone is happy. But you still have access to the thief's account, and for a short window of time, it's still filled to the brim with your employer's siphoned money.
Backstab at your leisure(and peril), none of it's scripted.

On the negative side, if you look at the screenshots, that's pretty much how the game looks. You can install themes to change up the color scheme if the sharp black+blue hurts your eyes, or you just want to tell people who come over that you are hacking the matrix. Throughout the game there are very few graphic representations, and when there are the best you could hope for is an animated picture (usually just static images, though). It would be easy to dismiss these issues as "part of the experience" but that's just a cheesy way of dodging "Its a really old game, you will have to deal with terrible graphics". Admittedly, though, it IS easy to overlook the visuals, simply because its what you expect to see on some TV hacker's monitor.

Gameplay-wise, once you know how to do it, and get personaly experinced with it, you can get all the money you ever want within a few hours from starting and there is little replay value until you leave long enough to forget how to play. This is problematic and game length ties in directly to how good you are at it. You could beat the game in an hour and a half if you know what you are doing.
Don't spoil it for yourself and look up how to start the ending! You will have more fun figuring it out for yourself!

Being a very old game, it also has interface problems. No scroll-wheel support being the worst offender, the necessity to have your mouse hovering over any information box you are trying to type in is a close second. Its a pain, and something to be aware of, but it doesn't get in the way of enjoying the game once you are used to it (Using the tab button is an easy fix to the second one).

At the end of the day, Its certainly worth the 10$, but should you still be on the fence about it, it goes on sale for crazy low prices. Just whatever you do: make SURE you don't miss out on this game!
