You play an Uplink Agent who makes a living by performing
jobs for major corporations. Your tasks involve hacking into rival computer
systems, stealing research data, sabotaging other companies, laundering money,
erasing evidence, or framing innocent people.
You use the money you earn to upgrade your computer systems, and to buy new
software and tools. As your experience level increases you find more
dangerous and profitable missions become available. You can speculate on a
fully working stock market (and even influence its outcome). You can modify
peoples academic or criminal records. You can divert money from bank transfers
into your own accounts. You can even take part in the construction of the most
deadly computer virus ever designed.
