"Space RPG that's a Diablo-esq type game. Found this little gem a long time ago and was happy to see it available on Steam finally."

About This Game

The colony ship, Maximus XV was on course. This was supposed to be an uneventful trip. No one on board expected the gravitational entity. It quickly swallowed Maximus XV.

The colony ship and its passengers were trapped but not alone. Ships loaded with creatures of unknown species have been trapped for years. They have learned how to survive by feeding on newcomers.

They quickly attacked Maximus XV, taking over one colony biosphere after another. The passengers were caught unaware and barely put up any resistance against the merciless invaders.

The last biosphere was different. With impromptu weapons colonists managed to fight off the attack, but they were still under siege, surrounded by countless enemies. Now, the only way to get out of this alive is to get to the emergency capsule and use their powerful engines to break free from the Nebula. But the capsule is at the other end of the ship and the path leads through all the biospheres, now colonized by alien creatures.

This is a one person job. Only the best of the best will have any hope. Hope has a new name – Space Hack

I just finished the game. I had to watch ending on youtube because after killing final boss and entering last teleport game crashed and all my saves were gone.

Its like diablo 1/2 in space, with bad gameplay, bad controls, terrible camera and sound effects that will make you ears bleed ("pew pew pew"), repetitive enemies (in different colors! yay). Loot is terrible - vendors have better equipment, in games like that it is just unforgivable.

Remember 2005?
I've met Mercury-8 as a child, and now I've met Space Hack.
I've bought this game just because of its price ($0.09 at -83%) and only at the time the game was launched I finally recognized the old friend. Honestly, I didn't hope for better things from 'new realization', but screenshots were nostalgic and quite good, so I tried to play it.
So, let's start with pros:
❶ 45 levels with extensive locations
❷ Virtual absence of bugs
❸ Variety of gadgets
❹ Funny effects
❺ Epic loot
❻ Not bad music
And cons:
❶ Insipid gameplay
❷ Weak plot (despite the fact that the game has a lot of text)
❸ Old idea taken from Diablo 2
❹ Awkward interface
❺ Level design
❻ Low opponents' artificial intelligence
❼ Terrible sound effects
But remember: we shouldn't judge Space Hack too harshly, as it was developed in 2004. Nonetheless, if someone says that this game is only a pathetic Diablo's clone or fake, I have to admit that some of these words are true.

This game plays like it is in early development; the front end and menus don’t seem finished, the game play is repetitive and unrewarding also the programme has bugs just about everywhere. This could be a good game with a bit of work to sort these issues. I would not recommend this game in its current state.

Nice Diablo-like game, but in space.
Not too bad for its price.
