Inspired by the Deus Ex Human Revolution hacking minigame, I came out with a design for a procedurally generated spin on it, and decided to give it a go and try to make it into a finished game.

The rules are simple, hack the grid node by node and arrive at the destination node (green node), whilst capturing yellow bonus nodes (if you can) that give you money and additional powerups.
For more in depth rules, an in-game help screen is available ;).

Mouse to do everything
Z - Select node / Activate powerup
X - Switch from node selection to powerup selection

The game is not 100% balanced and it could potentially turn out to be too easy or too hard. Feedback is appreciated.

Have fun! ;)

Super fun strategy game! My only complaint is that it's a little to easy for me. I got to $10000+ before I intentionally lost. Some difficulty options / difficulty curve would be nice.

@merwok i can surely add button controls, i have to experiment a bit to make them usable.

@Scrubz thanks for the feedback, I knew it was a bit too easy. I can balance it a little more, maybe making it harder the more money you have.

It's been a while since I've played human revolution, wasn't there a way to slow(or harden a spot to make it slower to capture)?

@VgBlade yes, there was, but I always thought that it needlessly complicated the gameplay and I decided not to put it into the game.
