- What: Hacker Evolution & Hacker Evolution Untold
- Where: Green Man Gaming
- Current Price: £15.98
The hacking sim is a small and often unnoticed subgenre that balances on-the-fly problem solving with tight time limits. Being a superhacker always appears to be extremely glamourous and fun in the movies, and Exosyphen have attempted to bring us a number of hidden hacking gems over the last few years. Hacker Evolution and its sequel/expansion Evolution Untold challenge gamers to locate servers, analyse their security setup and quickly crack their way inside (bouncing your connection around the world to deter pursuers, naturally). Uplink still gives you more bang for your buck, but if you're looking for something with a slightly more realistic feel (and have seriously fast fingers), these two games are well worth checking out. Especially now Green Man Gaming have slashed 50% off the price.
