The typical vision of a hacker involves a lit cigarette, the dull glow of a computer screen, and lots of furious typing. 868-HACK goes in a different direction. It's a cyberpunk-styled hack 'em up that has you sliding a tiny smiley face around in order to extract as much data as you can before getting caught. The game consists of eight levels, and each one is full of both data packets and enemies looking to destroy you. Deciding which data to extract is where much of the strategy comes into play: some packets give you new abilities, some will contribute to your high score, and all will summon additional enemies on screen. The more useful the data, the bigger the onslaught of new enemies.
