Magazine reviews

"The fact that Hacker is essentially a puzzle, albeit a complex one, is certain to enthrall some and repel others. It is fundamentally different from most other strategy games, because repeated play is an integral part of reaching the solution. Those who enjoy a protracted battle of wits will find Hacker a lively test of their abilities." - Ahoy! Issue 25 (1986)
