It's tough being a great computer user, but without the grades to prove it. As a mediocre college student, you plug in your computer one day and decide to check out the hack about networks in New York City. But keeping out of trouble has never been a strong point and it won't be long until you may stumble across something that will put you on the wrong side of those who control the law.
Digital Hazard is build on the same framework as exoSyphen's other Hacker games. The player's only eye to the world is a console interface showing the position of systems on a satellite map, the status of traces, the current action and a general overview. Much of the screen is taken up by the command line interface into which you will type various UNIX style commands to connect to and manipulate computers on a simulated internet.
