Mass Effect hacking mini-games are now in the virtual museum

If you want to try Mass Effect’s Daft Hacking mini-games without loading BioWare’s big old space RPG, you don’t have to look anymore. Someone has created a virtual museum that recreates both Mass Effect 1 and Mass Effect 2 hacking puzzles. It was inspired by the Virtual Rock Picking Museum, which I reported a few months ago. I want to see the Hacking Museum with all the terrible Mass Effect mini-games. ”

This is the second time Mass Effect news has come out, at which point I’m scaring myself.

Like the earlier picking museums, Museum Of Mass Effect Minigames is a virtual showcase for game mechanics. Created by Phoebe Shalloway on, you can try it for free here.

I’ve never actually played it, so I was really surprised at the first hacking mini-game offered. The truth is, my only experience with Mass Effect 1 was the console, and I never thought the game would have a specific PC-only hacking puzzle. Alec Meer (RPS in peace) compared the garbage version of Frogger in the worst hacking mini-game post. This is the best way to actually explain it. Check it out in the video below.

On the console, the Frogger-style game was replaced by a kind of “Simon Says” that required pressing a series of buttons to hack. It was just as clever. Why does someone bother to lock things like this in the Mass Effect universe? If you just use locks and keys, the intrusion will probably be less.

Both of the other virtual museum mini-games are from Mass Effect 2. There is a hack that requires matching segments of code. Here we duplicate it by matching nice pictures of trees and rocks. Then there is a bypass mini-game where you need to match the symbols to complete the circuit. The symbols here include things like eyes and shine, all of which look a bit occult. To be honest, I dig up aesthetics.

It’s a pretty basic museum, but it’s cool to see all the mini-games in one place. Examining all of them, I suspect you’ll see a more bizarre hacking puzzle in the next Mass Effect game, which revealed that BioWare was working on it a few weeks ago. Hope they don’t revive the weird Sudoku Mass Effect: Andromeda let us do that.

Museum Of Mechanics: If you want to check out Lockpicking, you can also find it for free on Itch. There have been some updates since the last try, adding mini-games such as Sherlock Holmes Proof and Splinter Cell.
