MAINFRAME is a small HTML5 game, inspired by Warioware and bad 90s movies about hacking.

You are one of the cybernet's most skilled hackers. It's up to you to hide behind proxies, crack through the Corp ICE and access their mainframe. Cracking the ICE involves running one of many subroutines, and failure to crack the ICE during the time limit will result in you being traced, and a layer of proxy protection being removed. Once the last proxy is removed, you're vulnerable to every hacker's worst dream: black ICE.

Can you jam with the console cowboys in cyberspace?

warioware for hackers!

this is, like, the first "hacking-the-mainframe" type game I really like. in many other titles it feels like the author wanted to simulate real-world cracking but doesn't have enough expertise to pull it off. this game however is abstract enough to not fall into that uncanny valley, while featuring many charming references to popular exploit types.

oh, and it's also extremely fun to play!

Fantastic presentation, great, simple game with style! Here from Rock, Paper, Shotgun :D

This game is a blast!

i love it
