Anonymous Hacker Simulator – General Guide (Gameplay, Saves and Fixes)

In this guide you can find general overview of gameplay, save file locations, few fixes and some short tips with spoilers.

Gameplay Explained

At its core it’s a puzzle game. The ‘hacking’ is based on real life, but still very much ‘gamified’. You’re essentially trying to work out solutions based on hints you get using the tools you’re given. Fairly niche I guess, but fun for those who enjoy solving puzzles in a hacker setting. There’s no requirement to have real coding knowledge.

Important note: Make sure you enable V-Sync and limit fps to 60 to reduce usage.
