About This Game

Hacker Evolution Duality is the hacking simulation game, developed by exosyphen studios. Based on the successful Hacker Evolution game series, it has been completely redesigned to offer an impressive and new gaming experience.
Hacker Evolution Duality starts in the early days of Brian Spencer when he was nothing more than a brilliant programmer. It than fast forwards to the future, where he has to stop an Artificial Intelligence he has created, unknowingly and take back control of a giant company he once used to own.
You have to hack into computers using various tools, from a basic firewall cracker, to sophisticated voice print authentication systems. Steal money to finance your objectives, buy hardware upgrades or bribe off other hackers that are present in the game. Go as far as bypassing complex security systems to make your way into buildings and steal data. Frame people or even murder them using ingenious traps.
You are not alone in the game. Other hackers controlled by a complex artificial intelligence, will stop at nothing to destroy you.
The game features a single player mode where you follow the game's story and an open world mode, where you play a death match against other hackers.

Key features:

  • Redesigned interface and game play
  • Large open world populated by AI hackers
  • Amazing new graphics, sounds and animations
  • Choice of game play: pursue the game's objectives, or play a never ending and evolving open game.

This game is a mess.

The screenshots are complete lies, the only "hacking" you will ever see in this game is a picture of a map, some dissapearing red blocks, and the game over screen. Yes, this game is impossible . There are no tutorials or even a basic explanation of the rules or how to play. It was clear that this game was rushed and almost no effort went into it. I realy wish this game was good ant that's why I bought it. Don't make the same mistake I made. DO NOT BUY THIS GAME!

No. Just no.

This game just completely erased the fact that players who play Hacking-simulator-games want to write the little amount of "code", since that is more or less the only thing that is fun.
This game you use the mouse, not completely, but almost. Lets say you use the mouse for 95%. I quit the game during the second mission, since there was some kind of graphics-bug in it so I couldnt see the buttons I needed to press.
I restarted the game but I couldn't see them until I quit to menu and then loaded my saved profile.

This is a series of unrelated mini-games. Stick to the earlier versions of this game.

Uplink, the 12-year old "hacking simulator", is possibly the finest game of its type yet created. But it is definitely showing its age and I'm not averse to trying something new. On the face of it, Hacker Evolution Duality looks to be an excellent successor to that beloved classic. But first appearances are frequently misleading.

Hacker is not a game; it is a collection of dull and fiddly mini-games. While it has an excellent presentation, the gameplay itself is nothing more than pushing a button at the right time; an uninteresting race against the clock that you need to repeat dozens of times in each mission. It looks great - it has the appearance of Hollywood hacking nailed - but it quickly degenerates into uninteresting repetitiveness. And just to make things even less fun, the controls were stiff and unresponsive; just the thing for a game that demands quick reflexes. Despite its stylish gloss, the game fails to engage on almost every other levels and ultimately is not particularly fun.

I played the first Hacker Evolution and I loved it. So when I heard that there was going to be a sequel, I jumped at the chance to purchase it!

However, this game has little to recommend it, and doesn't much resemble the original at all. The original made you feel like an actual hacker, typing commands into a console. This game is a GUI based point-and-click. You don't get the feel of being a hacker that you might expect from the title.

Not only that, but the gameplay is boring, and a lot of the tools at your disposal are arbitrarily difficult to use, and the time limit placed on you just makes things stressful and not fun when the tools take almost as long or longer than the time allotted to you. Do not buy.

This game is absolute garbage. It's not "open world" and it sure isn't full of amazing anything. I'm sure you're thinking "Oh man this looks just like Uplink!" and you would be right it does LOOK like Uplink which suckered me into buying this hunk of digital crap. This game is nothing like Uplink and is utterly disappointing to play.

I bought this game really cheap, but free is the only fair price for it. It is really bad.

First of all it starts on my second display which is my TV, took a while to realize it.

Second, there is a bug where you can't read messages (gives some file not found error), apparently the dev knows about this since Jan or Feb or something and it still isn't fixed. There's a dude that posted some workaround with converting mp3 files to ogg and changing some text files around to make it work, this way you can actually read mission objectives.

The game it is kind of crap, it is not very intuitive what you need to do, in fact in the tutorial the AI hacked me down to 0 firewall and 0 integrity and I had no idea what would I need to do to counter it. Don't be mistaken by the name the game has nothing to do with actual hacking or IT skills, it's just a theme, so it's not about me not knowing what a computer is (I do, working since 15 years in IT).

I know now it's a rather old game and it's not a big financial loss to try it, but if I knew what I know now I wouldn't have paid even 1 euro for it. Angry birds is more fun and an actual game that works compared to this (I don't play angry birds, never undestood the fascination, it's a really stupid game).

its a simple hacking simulator, I mean simple is really simple like to hack a server is as easy as double click.
Really not interesting or chalenging, i think "hackthegame" the free hacking simulator game is far better than this game.
look at the price, its so overpriced and not worth with your money, there are so many better title with the same price.

What sort of game developer makes you pay for a tutorial? The game is glitchy, even the developers cannot give a proper one and done solution for users who have glitches. Not worth 20 dollars, certainly not worth the dlc.

Basically the same level of gameplay as a free flash game. If you want a fun Hollywood-style hacking sim, ignore this one and grab Uplink instead.

STAY AWAY! If you came looking for another Uplink clone, THIS IS NOT IT. Hacker Evolution: Duality tries to come across as a worthy sucessor to the masterpiece that was Uplink, and falls far, far short. The game is outright unfinished on my system, with the game menus broken and unusable, and there is no story. The game just feels wrong, and you would get more for your dollar looking elsewhere.
