Is Hacking Justified?

Well, hacking into an Android game to get an undue advantage is often frowned upon. Especially, if it a competitive multiplayer game. If you are getting an undue advantage through hacks and mods, then it ruins the gaming experience for everyone else. This is highly discouraged and game developers are constantly trying to fix any loopholes or weak links in the code that can be exploited to create such hacks. Anti-cheating measures are getting stronger day by day but unfortunately so are the hacks.

However, if the game in question is a simple offline single-player game that does not affect or involve anyone else, then hacking isn’t that criminal. Some Android game developers essentially make certain levels extremely hard so that the user has a tough time progressing further. It is a tactic used by developers to force players into making micro-transactions. They want you to spend actual money on resources to overcome the difficult stages in the game. Believe it or not, in most cases it works. Players often prefer to spend a few bucks to avoid all the frustration that is a result of being stuck at the same points for days or weeks. Cases like these justify using hacks to exploit the game. Using clever tricks to get all those resources for free seems like a justified punishment for compelling players to waste their hard-earned money.
