Magma Project Hacker (マグマ プロジェクト HACKER?) is an RPG developed by Bits Laboratory for the Famicom Disk System and published in Japann by Tokuma Shoten in 1989. It is loosely adapted from the 1985 Activision PC game Hacker. The player character uses a robotic fighter to hunt for clues behind a global conspiracy.
Magma Project Hacker is a sci-fi themed RPG and an adaptation of the 1985 PC/Amiga/Atari ST strategy game Hacker. As with the Famicom Disk System adaptation of Monty on the Run, a considerable number of liberties were taken with the game's themes practically transforming it into a completely different game. Ironically, the story more closely resembles another western PC game, Captive, with its plot.
The player character witnesses a murder and is told to seek information on a shadowy organization known as the Magma Project by the dying victim. In order to effectively hunt for clues, the player character uses a device to activate a robot on the other side of the planet and employs the robot's various combat and exploration functions to track down the Magma Project.
