The game does not reqire keyboard. You do not need to write anything.
Simply, select options with up and down arrows and the game "write" prompt command for you :)
At this stage there is only the main game loop. The difficulty does not increase over time
and there are only two minigames.
You can register or login to HEAP website (create account / log in)
This is the main menù of the game in wich you can:
- Access to mission board to select a mission (mission board)
- Access to the news of hacking activities. You can also find your activities (news)
- Access to your accoun info (account info)
- Delete your account (delete account)
You can select a mission by connect to target host.
After you connect o target host you arrive to the "target screen"
The first thing is to scan for active security service by use the command "nmap".
You simply press the O button (Z in kyboard)
The game show the active security service (1 to 3 at the moment) which can be hack by mini-games.
The version of service represents the mini/game difficulty level.
You must hack a single service to enter in the target system and see "shell screen".
By level 2 mission, you can find a proxy/firewall that adds a mini-game to solve.
In this screen you can select various command to complete your mission.
The command with a star is the command that the mission requires to complete it.
Free hacking does not have a command to execute. It is not a real mission.
The execution of commands influences your Karma.
They resemble Linux shell commands and some are
real but do not work as shown in the game, as "nmap".
They are in the game to increase immersion.
