Stack Hacker

by biscuitWizard - Jam Entry

You play a hacker in this memory-testing hacking minigame!

Quickly corrupt the memory blocks listed at the right to crash the firewall, and get paid!


I used Unity3D, C# Messenger Extended, and PyxelEdit to make this game. Completed in under 48 hours, I didn't quite have the time to add sound effects or come up with some catchy music to play in the background.

Pretty fun, reminds me Uplink. I liked the color coding of the cells. If you ever get a chance, some tense music would definitely add to the mood to this!

Okay! Hold up! No comments here??? This was extremely cool ! I loved hacker games as a kid and this is really simple yet it's conveyed in such an immersive and genuine way. Really good job. I gave this a 5 overall because it's just really cool even though the actual game is pretty simple :)

I like the look and feel, especially the transitions between levels and background readouts. Good mood.

This was really good. Love the attention to detail with the console on the left! Really good mechanics!

All the random text was a bit overwhelming! but other than that it suits the theme really well, good job!

Really like the mood of the game.
With all the writing on the screens, it felt like in a good ol' movie with a hacker from the 90's :)

Really nice! I'm a huge fan of Uplink and this has the same feel to it. Thumbs up!

Nice. I have to say I found the new UI less intuitive than you, especially layout. Congrats on pushing through :)

Hey guys, thanks for the comments! I really appreciate the feedback! :)

I really wish I had some sounds in the game, would make it just so much better. Definitely something to focus post-LD or next LD.

I also changed the website background to black.

Pretty solid entry for just a few hours! Great difficulty ramp. I wonder what the global high score will be?

Lol! This game reminds me the time when I coded some BufferOverflow Xploits in order to test my skill. Really good work. Neat ++

TEAMS: Teams entering the Jam should pick a single representative to submit your game, or create a team specific account you can share. We currently do not support Team Voting, but sharing an account and together playing and rating games is acceptable.

NOT LOGGED IN?: If you get a message about not being logged in, even though you are, it’s because your web browser cached the non-logged in page. You can fix this by either refreshing your cache or clearing your cache. CTRL+F5 in many browsers. Chrome is a bit more work. Press F12 to enable Developer Mode, then you can right click on the refresh button and select “Empty Cache and Hard Reload”. This option is unavailable if you are not in Developer Mode.

PORTS: Ports to other platforms can be done after the deadline. That said, the sooner you finish your port, the sooner people can play your game, improving your chances of placing in the final results. For best results, provide a Web version of your game, or a Windows version with no dependencies. Also be sure to rate about 20 games to improve your visibility.

MY GAME DOESN’T SHOW UP: If you can’t find your game, it’s usually because the URL to your downloads are missing ‘http://‘. Fix your URLs ( and you will show up. Alternatively, if you just posted it, wait a minute. The cache may not have refreshed yet.

MY GAME CRASHES, IS UNBEATABLE, OR I MADE A TYPO: We allow you to fix crash or win condition bugs after the deadline (in a sense, like “porting” to support more players). We also allow “typo” bugs. I.e. A true that should have been a false, a word that should have been a different word, very tiny changes that you would have caught if you had more sleep. We leave this open to interpretation, but generally speaking your game should be identical to the game you submitted. No new features, just things you messed up last minute. Typos.
