        … I could have lived in blissful ignorance of that information

      Back when Ambrosia made Mac ports. DEFCON was cool.

    I wish I was good enough at Uplink to make it to the score screen. I also just kept getting sidetracked.

      I managed to steal 1,000,000 from some poor sucker this time. Transferred all their cash to my own account, wiped the logs on both sides, and then fast forwarded a couple days. Figured I was in the clear and then made a stupid mistake trying to incriminate someone.

      Uplink is -kind of easy- up until a certain point. Then it’s all about timing.

        Once you get good at cracking the banks, you basically have unlimited money. Then upgrade your gear like crazy.

        For me, I never got the hang of the mainframes with multiple steps and routers and such. Still a fun game though.

          I was on one of the missions to ruin someone’s life and got caught somehow. My guess is I forgot to wipe logs somewhere or was too slow when adding a fake crime to their profile in the GCD.

    I haven’t played this game in forever but I don’t remember it being hard? By the time I got to the storyline, I was already pretty maxed out

      You’re right, it’s not that difficult of a game. I just have never successfully gotten as far as I had this time. I’ve also never beaten the storyline part of the game.

    Is there a mobile version of this? This game was/is awesome, haven’t played it in a long time though.

      Sadly I don’t believe there is a mobile version. It hasn’t been updated in forever, hence me posting in RetroGaming.

        Yea last time I looked was years and years ago now. Would be awesome if the original dev, released it on mobile.

    It’s been hella long since I played this. And I think I only ever had a demo. Has anything even gotten close to simulating (Hollywood) hacking that’s as fun as Uplink? I can’t believe the concept hasn’t evolved in all these years.

      There are other games like Hacker Evolution but none that are Hollywood-esque like Uplink
