Review: Cyber Hacker

21 Aug 2015 0
  • iOS

Password attack software: 2,500 USD. Totally worth it.
Despite the over-the-top name, Cyber Hacker is not a punky, pulpy tale of megacorps v. deckers (à la Shadowrun or Netrunner). Instead, what we have is a down-to-earth freeform puzzle game informed by real, contemporary, illegal hacking.

I had a roommate in college who played this card constantly.
When Card Hunter debuted on PC to rave reviews, I deployed the wisdom of experience and waited to get into it until the likely iPad release.

I'm not exactly sure how to write this review. Splendor is a card game which I've owned and played since it was released back in 2014. My kids love the game, as do many of the guys in my game group. I, however, do not love Splendor.
