The AGS Panel is a team of AGS forum veterans who play all of the games here, and give them ratings from one to five cups. The rating system is as follows:
1 CupNot serious entertainment
2 CupsA reasonable game, worth a try
3 CupsA good game, worth playing
4 CupsA great game, well worth your time
5 CupsAn outstanding, must-play game!
Feel free to disagree with the panel's rating, and please don't be offended if you think your game has been under-rated!

(Why has my game been rated 1 cup?)

Close window
If your game has been rated 1 cup, please don't be offended! It's common for your first game release to get a 1-cup rating, due to the game having a lack of polish and flair -- which is understandable, because you're just getting started!

Please understand that the main purpose of the ratings is to help potential game players find high quality, bug-free games to play. You've probably learnt a lot about AGS as a result of making your first game -- so why not use that knowledge to start afresh, and do even better with your next game!

About this game

Winner of the "Best Innovation" award in 2007. Yaytards!

Be the hacker you always wanted to be.
Language and Sex/nudity ratings due to in-game chat channels.
UPDATE 2012/09/13: I've re-uploaded the game to Mediafire. I hope this fixes the persistent trouble with eSnpis.

The graphics are partially stolen from Uplink. Go to its website. Now. (
The Knoll image was stolen from the Kingdom of Loathing. Go there, too. (

V 1.2! Yee haw!

This is a VERY fun game to play. Good graphics, amazing immersion, and overall very enjoyable. The end puzzle is ridiculously difficult, and there seem to be some bugs that allow you to crack some passwords when you shouldn't. But overall the game is great! I would recommend it to anyone.

Just in case you didn't notice: New, all-changed version 1.2 is here. Yaaaay.

I've enjoyed the couple hacking games that I've played, and this one wasn't less than the rest. This one was different from what I had seen before, which is of course a good thing. The GUI could get some refinements, especially to avoid writing the IP addresses over and over, but overally it had enough variety of puzzles and was timed properly enough not to become repetive, which is something hacking in real life usually is. Or so I've heard ;-)

Is this gaming accurate? Definitely not. Is this game realistic? Hell no. Is this game flawless? #@>$!$. Is this game fun? Yes, stop reading and go play it!

Decided to give credit to KoL for the Knoll image, too. Happy now?
