I paid for this game back in 2003 and have played it on and off over the years.

Thanks for updating this Ambrosia.

Now I can play it again!

For those that haven't played it, it may not be for everyone, but it keeps us hackers at heart quit happy!

No bugs encountered with version 1.6 !

This game is simply fantastic, great fun, clever and original (and I feel a bit bad-ass at the same time!)

Awesome game for those who have the urge to cause virtual destruction. And aw man, the upgrades, it certainly has the upgrades!

Thanks Ambrosia for updating to universal binary, I'll be sure to have a crack at it once I'm finished my exams ("sure I have time for just one more high security hack.......").

Well worth a shot!

This game is an absolutely buggy waste of time. I played for 6 hours (through crashes and such), only to find out that through some "bug" I can not trigger the story line. This has happened TWICE. This game has fundamental issues that have not been resolved after two years. DO NOT BUY IT, I warn you. Absolutely crap. Way below Ambrosia's standards. They never should've agreed to distribute this.

While amazingly fun at first, it gets very boring and repetitive when playing the full version. Stick to the demo... there isn't much more to see afterwards.

THIS GAME IS AWSOME! Yeah, IT's a little trivky sometimes, but hey, it keeps you on your toes, and it's just amazing what you can do when you get good enough stuff in the game.

You play an Uplink Agent who makes a living by performing jobs for major corporations.Your tasks involve hacking into rival computer systems, stealing research data, sabotaging other companies, laundering money, erasing evidence, or framing innocent people.

You use the money you earn to upgrade your computer systems, and to buy new software and tools. As your experience level increases you find more dangerous and profitable missions become available. You can speculate on a fully working stock market (and even influence its outcome). You can modify peoples academic or criminal records. You can divert money from bank transfers into your own accounts. You can even take part in the construction of the most deadly computer virus ever designed.
