Want a break from hardware hacking? Try Bitburner – Hackaday

If you ever mention to a normal person that you are a hacker, they might also ask you if you can do something mean. The media has unfortunately changed the meaning of that word so most people think hackers are lawless computer geniuses instead of us ordinary people who are probably just breaking the laws that were supposed to prevent you from fixing your own electronics. However, if you want a break, you can fully accept it Hollywood hacker stereotype s Bitburner. Since everything is online, you don’t even have to rip off your hoodie.

The game takes place in 2077 where, apparently, people still use green monochrome terminals and write JavaScript code. Who knew? The operating system is suspiciously similar to Linux with commands like alias,, cat,, cp,, kill, and similar. We were confused that in 2077 they still use vim, but you can use nano. We always thought that real hackers would be emacs users. Our machine also starts with just 8 MB of RAM. It’s good to think you can almost buy more.

We won’t argue with that cls is synonymous with clear or that you use help instead man. It is, after all, a game. This means you don’t have to feel bad using the buy command to buy programs on the virtual dark web. Hey, if you can shoot the bad guys in the FPS game, why can’t you do business with fake cybercriminals. Why would Grand Theft Auto are the players having fun?

You know how much better you are in a video game and you can suffer a lot more damage than in real life? The same principle applies here. Use scan-analyze the help command tells you how many open ports the connected computers have and how many hacking skills will be needed to break in. That would be handy in real life, we bet.

We thought it was bad form that the tutorial warned us not to enter the commands they wanted. What hacker wouldn’t try something else? Either way, it’s probably a better diversion than any game on Facebook or phone with which your friends are wasting time. It probably doesn’t give any real hacking skills, but it doesn’t have to be all useful.

If you want a game that could teach you something, give it a try Bash crawl adventure. Or, go write and play some BASIC games in your browser.
