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

Oh my ♥♥♥♥ing GOD! After 38 hours of agony i beat this crap. This is the most boring game I ever played in my life.

Pros:
- Was free
- Story is related in space, everyone likes space
- Yep

Cons:
- Gameplay, main story, quests, enemies - EVERYTHING IS ♥♥♥♥ING BORING!
- There are only two types of enemies - fighting and shooting, sometimes they change colours - incredible!
- No respawns
- There are only two cut scenes: Intro and Outro and doesn't work, You have to watch them on YouTube
- A lot of crashes without reason

3/10 - Better buy a Smash Mouth album.

INSTANTLY tedious! It also crashes if you try to set the video res any higher than 1920.
Here's the synopsis:
-leave compound and punch (yes, punch!) aliens
-after the 4th or 5th one you need to heal
-rinse, repeat a half dozen times....now you can FINALLY buy your first weapon
-hit aliens....run back to heal.
-hit aliens...run back to heal.
-hit aliens.....run back to heal.
-by now you're getting further and further from the base, at which time you realize you have a run meter and you get tired quick. You have to STAND STILL to recover your meter! You read that correctly....you have to stand and do nothing for your run meter to recharge.

This game is pure fail.

Space Hack uses the Diablo formula, but it is a lesser derivative that doesn't do anything other than provide a setting in space with alien creatures. The environment is situated in an enormous cargo ship transporting biospheres for planetary colonization.

There are some good things about the game; the science fiction environment and back story created are interesting. Graphically the game looks good and feels convincing. Also, the controls are quite fluid and the game operates smoothly (I loved being able to rotate the map with the mouse scroll wheel). No bugs or crashing to be found; overall, I found no technical reasons to dislike this game.

I played the game for 8.7 hours and finished 2 quests. To finish this game 100% one must visit 15 biospheres; all that time and I only fully explored biospheres A and B. I have a hard time with games that are too fast paced, but even for me this game is too slow. One would need to put in about 50-60 hours which is too long for a game that doesn't have much variety.

The maps are large but feel quite empty. There are too few scripted events, no special spots, or interesting extras, just hundreds of monsters to slay and a lot of space station objects that have no interactivity. To be blunt, after a few hours this game gets boring.

Despite the very reasonable price of this game is not recommended since they forgot to make it fun, This is not a bad game, but it is boring due to the lack of variety.

TL;DR - it's a decent Diablo clone I played some years ago with unusual and appealing setting that I used to like :)

It's actually one of the games I've been waitng to appear on Steam or other digital distribution, as I have a good memories from this game :).

I have to admit, I never finished or even got far in the game and I barely remember much from it, but I used to play it at the time Diablo II was popular and I liked it, and I got the game from the magazine it was attached (which is now lost, so I couldn't play the game afterwards :( ).

The game received mixed reviews, but I decided to try it anyway (partially because the game had Polish origins, me being somewhat patrioric here ;) ) and the short time I played it, I like it! And now I have time to enjoy the game again, on Steam! And initially on Steam (as of 2014-08-05) the game was even free so it won't hurt to try this game anyway, especially if you enjoy diablo-like hack & slash action rpgs!

EDIT: Oh, and try not to set the expectations too high either - I didn't had them high back then either. The game is old by today's standards and if you look at credits, the game was made only by a bunch of people. I also might be wrong, but I have a feeling that the English version on Steam is lacking (I can swear there was an intro in the version I played, and I played the original Polish version of the game), but I might be wrong o.o

EDIT2: After doing some investigation it seems that I was right about the cut content - the original game had both the intro (which is explaining some of the backstory so you actually have an idea what happened on the ship you are), and had Polish voiceovers that probably never got translated to English. Also, unfortunately, the Polish version is not available here on Steam at all and so are the files, which explains the low size of the game,
