Nameless: The Hackers

SuzanneThe 2010s are shaping up to be the decade of the Internet renegade, yet for those of us without the technical savvy necessary to participate in virtually sticking it to the man, BoxCat LLC offers us a tempting and significantly more legal alternative with Nameless: The Hackers, a mobile RPG with a lot of virtual bite.

Nameless: The HackersAn opening cutscene introduces you Cody and Jayden (yes, really), two good-guy hackers that get conscripted in the battle against R.E.A.C.H., a nefarious organization seeking a device with the power to manipulate minds. No 1337 skillz required here—an interface specifically designed for touch screens makes selecting attacks and improving skills a breeze. Tap on the world map to pick up missions, both randomly-generated bounties and story-advancing battles and events. Tap again to select one of many real-life hacking techniques to fling at your opponents and deplete their health. Defeated enemies drop cards that enhance your stats and, in a cool touch, also provide supplementary information about the history of hacking. If you're feeling lucky you can gamble money for a chance of gaining even better boosts. Later boss battles will test your mastery (and frequently your patience) with their seemingly unlimited resources of energy and health, so upgrade wisely.

Although Nameless uses the same turn-based battle mechanics as countless other games, its breezy dialogue and anime-inflected visuals combine with a story referencing the rise of hacktivist association Anonymous to make a refreshing and compelling experience. RPGs proliferate on the App Store, yet the contemporary setting and novel cyber trappings of Nameless: The Hackers stand out like a n00b in the depths of 4chan—in a good way, that is. Go on, put on your Guy Fawkes mask. The Nameless are legion, and they are waiting for you.

We have a bunch of Nameless: The Hackers promo codes to give away thanks to the developer, BoxCat LLC. Just post a comment about why you want one and we'll select winners at random. Rules: (1) You must use a Casual Gameplay account to post your comment (we'll need your email address to contact you with); (2) You must be at least 13 years of age to enter.

Thanks for the code. I'm having a blast with this game! It's nice to play a RPG in a different setting, and I'm finding the story tantalizing. Thanks again!

If you still have codes, I would absolutely love one! Been following Boxcat on Facebook for awhile, they posted your review and it prompted me to go check it out in the app store. I just realized there was a lite version and have been loving the game so far!

Would totally dig the chance to play the full version, as I'm afraid the demo is going to end soon! Thanks for the chance at a key regardless, and keep up the great reviews!
