868-HACK is a rogue-like. It is also a puzzler and most definitely a highly tactical experience, but above all it's one of the best and most elegant iOS games I have ever played. A truly masterfully crafted offering and a dangerous time-sink.
From the '80s-styled glowy graphics and the atmospheric soundtrack to the procedurally generated levels and the finely refined mechanics and gameplay balance, 868-HACK is a unique and actually brilliant experience. You move around cyberspace mazes fighting off enemies, while siphoning data, collecting resources and activating a variety of special programs in an attempt to steal valuable data. And, yes it's tough pulling it through, but also thoroughly rewarding.
868-HACK has just been released on the App Store as a universal app for both iPhone and iPad. A PC version is in the works.
