i haven't played the game so i won't have any feedback relevant to the gameplay or otherwise but ... i had the tab open for several hours listening to the music. it is absolutely awesome! what is it?

At first I tried using the arrow keys, but for me that scrolled the whole game page (using Chrome). Using ASD was fine though.
I too had trouble understanding to begin with. Once I got it, I found it interesting but very difficult. 
It looks great, all the visual effects suit the gameplay and the theme.  Nice choice of music too.

I took your suggestions and started adding some in-game help to let you know what to do next.

I agree about the tutorial stuff. Building a tutorial/hint/help system in tandem with the game is something I'm doing with all my future games. I already built one in to Zombie Tactics.

Really nice look and concept. I had a hard time understanding what I was supposed to be doing the first few plays but I think I got the hang of it. It did sometimes feel a little inconsistent how long you get locked in the files (viruses seemed to hold me forever, data seemed to slip by much quicker). As Local Minium said, I think you could benefit by simplifying the start and having it serve as a psuedo tutorial (i.e, send 1 piece of data solo until the player can hack it). Good work though. 

Really interesting fall fast to get more time with hack-mechanics. I managed to hack a few codes, but I think the start should be easier. Not speaking about avoiding viruses, that was quite easy, but getting into the habit and feeling for hacking. So more time typing.

This game is seriously awesome. I included it in my Cyberpunk Jam Favorites.

Nice entry! I included it in part 10 of my Cyberpunk Jam compilation video series, if you'd like to check it out :) http://youtu.be/Y-8YP7iQFW4

Nicely done!

I am not that fast in typing so I definitely such at this game :)

Also, I found that the bounce from the side walls is a little bit too much.

That's weird. What browser/os are you using? I've tested on Chrome, Safari and Firefox.

I only got background with CORE and theme music, no game.  :(
