hackmud reviews and comments

A game far too vague. The concept is well worked, but you get lost very easily and it is more necessary to have knowledge in programming to hope to move forward. The buy was for me money thrown out of the window...

I have at the moment made only the introduction of the game... But it's just impressive with that. Play it for little that interacting with a game using lines of text does not scare you... But despite that, this is perhaps the most "involving" game seen this year. I will update this evaluation after a few hours of the "real game" in addition.

Jain. So the tutorial program was great. I'm Disappointed with what comes after that. I haven't heard Of the Multiplayer/MMO part yet. Apparently, playing together is not really required. The locks are Demanding at the Start, but when you have the Hang of it, it becomes routine. Well, I'm only with Tier 2, maybe later will be even "better." I rate negative things on the one hand because of the MMO label, which is not really existent, and on the other hand it is possible to break out of the Game the user Script and cause Damage to the PC (see Dev announcement from the 29.11.2016). This is an absolute No-Go. So rather leave your Fingers off the Game.

Hackmud is the Game for Hackers & Cracker Enthusiasts who want to prove their Skills. The Game fascinates by its complex Simplicity, which at first Sounds like a Contradiction in terms. Nevertheless, the Developers have managed to make a good Introduction to the History of Hackmud and its Game Concept. In the Beginning, an extensive Tutorial Is to be solved in order to understand what is important about Hackmud. Very interesting to observe is that the Developers have done a Good research on the Work of a Hacker & Cracker. The Game has the Center of gravity to find abandoned Bank Accounts and loot them. To do this, attack Scripts & Defense Locks must be purchased. However, Hackmud would not be a real Hacker & Cracker game without that the Player would also be able to write its own complex Scripts in good Simple Java Script and use them for defense or attack. Recently, there has also been a very special PvP System in which 16 vs 16 Players can compete against each other. The Price of the Game seems to be coated for a Text-based weed-looking Work without Graphics. Believe me is not! Since you first passed through the Tutorial, you will be thrown into the public Hackmud Net and The real Hacker & Cracker will start having fun against other Players! H @ ¢ K 7H € PL4N3 †!
