>>> "...I promise you that today's hacking game for the iPhone is worth the look. It's called Hack Run ZERO, and here's why you need to check it out..." - AppChronicles.com
Test your skills again as you hack your way through strange and secretive organizations to discover their hidden agendas! Hack ZERO uses old school prompts (like dos and unix) to help you navigate from system to system. As you access users' accounts, you'll discover more and more about the organizations and the people that work there.
Your adventure begins when you receive a disturbing ransom note about a loved one. Your only way to set them free is to follow the kidnapper's shady demands. Once again your mission is to penetrate the maze of computer accounts through the use of your hacking skills. The stakes run high as you uncover more and more of the enemy's diabolical plan; and with over 70 levels there's no guessing how it will all end!
Stuck on a level? Just use the 'hint' or 'answer' commands to help you along.
Make sure to play the THIRD, FOURTH and FIFTH games in the series called 'Hack Time', 'Hack NET' and 'Hack WATCH' after you complete this game!
'Hack RUN 2 - Hack ZERO' is a game. It is not a tool or aid for learning how to hack into real computer systems. i273, LLC does not endorse hacking.

Ratings and Reviews
First off, I liked Hack RUN a lot. Hack Zero...
Did I play it to the end? Yes. Did I enjoy it? Eh. The story itself isn't horrible, but the details were immature and lacked effort. A few of the puzzles were ridiculous, if the devs thought that someone could figure it out without looking at at least the hints, they're nuts. And not because they're challenging, they're just nonsensical. I can't believe I'm about to say this, but this game could have some focus grouping. It just came across like they didn't really take themselves out of the process, which I can forgive, but the attempts at humor were in the wrong places and just took away from what little suspension of disbelief I had. The idea is great. The interface is innovative and smart. To sum up: I found my self rolling my eyes a lot, but I did just buy the third in the hopes that they learned from this one.
This game is so fun
So at the very beginning when I got this game I didn’t really think it was going to be anything fun, just another game that I would play for a few days then just delete. Boy was I wrong! This game is so fun even though it takes a while to get into. You really have to pay attention when playing or you might not get all of the pieces that you need to complete all the levels. I seriously recommend this game because it actually has a great storyline even though, again, it takes a while to get into. The thing is it doesn’t really have any visuals which I don’t mind. It makes you think of your own characters and voices except for the occasional voicemail that is actually someone talking. I really recommend this game to people in their teens or older because that is the point where I got interested. I had it when I was littler but don’t really understand. If you’re looking for a fun game that requires brain power, get it and if you get stuck you can always google the walkthrough.
Game-breaking glitch prevents progress
This game was and is fun. But the current update has a bug that makes pop-up windows, like the web browser, unusable. Trying to type in them results in you typing on the main terminal screen instead. Until level 55, you can use a walkthrough to get around the problem, but at that point, you have to edit a file in a pop-up window to move forward. With the bug, this is almost if not entirely impossible. So, no more hacking for me. I can't stand unfinishable games.
FYI: Audio clips also don't play when they should, and I did check my volume settings.
