Beglitched is a game about insecurity, in our computers and ourselves. In a pastel world of networks where nobody truly knows what they’re doing, hacking is a magical art and the notorious Glitch Witch is the most premium archmagi of the net. By random circumstance, YOU are her new apprentice. You must use your wits and cunning to unravel the mechanisms of an alien computer and survive amongst a veritable web of clowns, leftclickers, and filedraggers.

Ratings and Reviews
Cute and sparkly aren’t how we used to picture hacking, but that was PB (pre-Beglitched). We fell hard for its colorful cyberworld—the legendary Glitch Witch, the shoutouts to Clippy and arcade oldies, your opening of mysterious files. Battles with rival hackers take elements of things we know (Minesweeper, Bejeweled) in surprising new directions—just like everything else in this captivating game.
Super fun game!
That being said, there are a few places where things are outright not explained and as such led to many hours of frustration before just looking up answers online. Catnet and spamnet are by far, the most frustrating levels (I’m fairly certain catnet took a few days off my lifespan just out of how angry I would get before finding a strategy that worked for me. Especially the last boss of that level who I had no idea how they operated for quite a while). I loved the gameplay and execution of glitchnet and it’s honestly really sad to see it end so soon afterwards, but understandable in terms of the story. Would be nice to have an endless mode or something similar. Overall, the game and story are pretty nice.
I agree with some of the other reviewers that it’s tough to figure out how to play this at first. Like... really tough. That can mostly be accredited to the fact that there’s really no other game like this, and that’s also part of the appeal. You feel like you’re sort of teaching yourself how to do this and it makes the gameplay even more rewarding once you start getting good at it. Once you do get the hang of how to play it though it’s a fully enthralling game that’s hard to put down. Obviously the visuals are phenomenal, the story line and humor is very present without being overbearing, the style of gameplay is incredibly unique. All in all just a home run of a game, well worth the high price tag.
