For those who...

  • It’s for those who have always wanted to be hackers and enjoy text-based games.

Not for those who...

  • Hack Run is entirely void of graphics. If games need flashy graphics to keep you engaged, you’re going to be bored playing Hack Run.

Why we love it

If you’re looking for a clever adventure game, this is it. Hack Run is actually a series of text-based games, so once you complete this one, make sure to check out its sequel and prequel.

App Store Description

Ever wanted to be a hacker? Play Hack RUN! Now with Apple Watch support! Hack your way into the heart of a mysterious organization to uncover their secrets. Hack RUN® is a game which uses 'old school' command prompts (like DOS or UNIX) that simulate a real operating system. Learn the commands of each system to help you navigate through your adventure.

As you hack into their systems, you will learn about the organization and the people who work there. Read files and emails to find clues and riddles which will give you access to more accounts. Data found on their systems will help you learn about the motives of the organization, and how dark their plans can get. You may also discover dirty little secrets about the employees as well.

Hacking into new accounts or discovering key information will increase your skill level. As you achieve your goals, you will move closer and closer to the final achievement; over 50 levels deep!

It's time for a Hack RUN!

Apple Watch support! Now you can display the recent contents of the terminal on your watch, view your achievements and view tips and help.

GAME CENTER SUPPORT: Earn achievements and compare your leaderboard score against other players.

Stuck on a level? Just use the 'hint' or 'answer' commands to help you along.
