Space Hack is a sci-fi RPG/action title
with Diablo-inspired gameplay mechanics, presented in real-time 3D
graphics. The story puts you on a quite peculiar space ship, full of
convicted prisoners, that got trapped inside a cosmic anomaly known as
Black Nebula. Playing role of a tough warrior you will be struggling to
reach an emergency transporting module, hacking and slashing your way
through hordes of alien creatures taking over your ship.
Space Hack is the latest Diablo style RPG
epic that is set in the distance future which follows the adventures or
Hack, a reluctant hero who finds himself on board a ship headed to a new
colony. Unfortunately for our hero, the
journey onboard this ship suddenly ends with this sojourn finishing in the
middle of nowhere.
With that said, Space Hack is created by
RebelMind, a humble little software company that doesn't have the budget
of EA or Microsoft behind but unlike the other two companies, it doesn't
need all the gimmicks and super graphics to make this title work, it's
more so because of the extremely cheesy and thoroughly entertaining
storyline... not to mention good solid gameplay.
Apart from your space ship, Hack must also
fight his way through five different terrains and biospheres that are filled with just about every strange alien that you
could possible imagine. RebelMind have really created an extremely
enriching and varied gaming universe to help immerse you into this
futuristic world of aliens.
45 levels in 5 different sceneries -
Earth-like environments, futuristic interiors, post-catastrophic
locations, deserts and frozen lands
40 alien creatures from 3 different
Dozens of weapons and hi-tech items
Diverse paths of character development
- smash your way through problems, become quick and elusive or gain
advantage with sophisticated technology
Amazing real-time 3D graphics and
spectacular special effects
Atmospheric industrial ambient music
The gameplay of Space Hack is your traditional RPG title
that basically has your character interacting with a plethora of
characters in order to discover new quests and purchase a wide gamut of
equipment. By fighting your way through the story of Space Hack, your
character slowly builds up his abilities and weapons in order to become
the bad ass character that he destined to become.
The control system of the game is
relatively straight forward with the battles broken into two forms of
combat, short range melee and long-range attacks with the player
navigating through a variety of basic and complex gaming environments.
The only downside to the combat in Space Hack is the artificial intelligence
of your opponents that ranges from severely lacking to extremely
The game also contains quite a wide variety
of different weaponry that include your classic melee weapons to swords
and clubs to your more futuristic items such as plasma and laser rifles
that really lays waste to your enemies. Needless to say, the game
contains dozens of extremely strange and clever items.
Graphically, Space Hack is quite an
impressive game with some highly detailed background environments and
great special effects. Unfortunately the character design of Space Hack
is a little bland but bare in mind the price of this title and you could
really have a bargain on your hands.
The soundtrack of Space Hack features your
traditional science fiction theme that nicely becomes an ambient
distraction as the in-game sound effects feature all the screams and
shouts of strange otherworldly aliens. Interestingly enough, Space Hack
features no real voice acting which is kind of odd for a game that is
relatively new in the grand scheme of things.
In conclusion Space Hack is quite a novel
game, especially for its price range that features some rather
impressive graphics, an entertaining musical score and a rather clichéd
but kind of cool storyline. Recommended to old school RPG fans that love
the genre which is unfortunately a thing of the past now.
