Apps & Games content ratings on Softonic

Content ratings help you understand the type of content you might find in an app or game, so you can decide if they are suitable for you and your family.

What do the ratings actually tell me?

Content ratings describe the minimum age we feel the content is suitable for. It does not indicate that the app was specifically designed for that particular age, or if a certain level of skill is required to play the game or use the app.

Where can I find the content ratings?

You will find the content ratings on every app or game page.

Why are some apps or games unrated?

If an app or game does not have a rating, it means that it has not yet been rated, or it’s been rated and we’re working to update the page.

Rating Systems

Softonic uses the rating systems by PEGI and ESRB. The ratings you see may vary by country or region.

In this game you play a hacker. When you first log in to your hacking console you get an email from someone you don't know, who asks you to do a hack for him because he heard great things about you. If you succeed, your name will become more known, and you will get more hacking assignments.

The assignments get harder along the game. To help you in your hacking adventure, you have a full featured hacking toolbox. You have tools like: ping, portscan, telnet, virus uploader, password hacker, file destroyer, etc.

The command console is a mix of *NUX and MS-DOS/Windows. It has some nice features, like a local filesystem (you can add your own folders), and much more cool stuff.

This "game" is possibly the most shamelessly nerdy form of "entertainment" available anywhere. Of course it's command-line based and has a computerized woman's voice saying things like "initializing" and "terminated".

I think there's a high possibility that if you aren't sure and want to know for definite whether you are a geek or not, you can try this game and if you enjoy it, then at least you mind will be at rest.

  • Can be used as a geek test
  • Might show you the basic concept of hacking
  • Not a very fun game to play
