    Playing this last night and it’s still just as great. Thought I’d start out on easy to ease myself back into it and made a couple of blunder which led to my destruction in Sector 4. Oh the shame.

    I fear the hacker drone may be over powered though.

    *VERY* overpowered ;) My ship goes crazy and I feel defenceless whenever they use it.

    Even on easy that game isn’t… easy.

    @Panthro: Yup. My current tactic is hack into the O2 supplier, drain the oxygen, and then smash the O2 power with laser/missiles. They’ll spend an age breaking back into the room. When they’re in, let them repair the O2 supply, and the moment that the do, drain it again.

    A level 2 hacker on a ship with enough fire power to cripple a single room (most ships then) can easily suffocate an entire crew with this method.
