  • Android game hacking apps

    For those who are unaware (which is likely almost everyone), there are three primary Android (mobile phone) video game hacking apps: GameCIH2, Game Guardian, and GameKiller. Each has its own advantages and disadvantages. Each requires either permanent or temporary 'root' access to run (Google is your friend in this regard). Without further ado...


    GameCIH2

    GameCIH2, version 2 of GameCIH, is the fastest of the three Android game hacking apps. To unlock full functionality, you're required to click one of its ad links, allow the page to load, then close the page. To use GameCIH2, you can either assign a hot key to call up the app during game play, or use the discreet, self-hiding toolbar during game play (you can completely hide the toolbar and use a hot key if preferred). Once you've decided which to use, you'll close GameCIH2 (it will remain resident), start your game, and press the hot key you assigned/click the toolbar. GameCIH2 will provide you with three options: Input Number (known value search), Low Level Analysis (unknown value/comparative search), and Input Name (search based on text labels). After searching for and finding your desired code, you can either modify its value once, or lock its value to whatever you like. You can also choose to halt the game when the GameCIH2 menu is called, which is very convenient. Unfortunately, you can only apply one code at a time, there is no way to name codes, you cannot save codes, and if you've locked the value of something and you'd like to search for something else, your only option is to discard your first code completely and search for your next code.


    Pros:

    Very fast
    Two convenient options for calling the app during game play
    Optional setting to halt game when the app is called
    Cool text-based label search feature


    Cons:

    Requires you to load an ad link for full functionality
    Only one code can be applied at a time
    No ability to save codes
    After a code is applied, searching for a new code requires discarding the existing code
    No ability to manually enter codes (enter address and value previously discovered or shared by another hacker)




    Game Guardian

    Game Guardian is not as quick as GameCIH2, but it has some great features. Once you get past setting the temp file path (I could only seem to get it to accept the root 'sdcard' directory), you'll be required to enable the locking function by - you guessed it - clicking an ad, following it, allowing it to load, and closing it. After that, you'll click Set Guardian Location, click a place on your screen at which you'd like the small, mostly transparent Game Guardian icon to sit while you're hacking/playing the game, and launch your game. The Game Guardian icon will remain in the place you chose, though not seriously obstructing view even in the small, (hopefully) unimportant spot you placed it. Once you're ready to hack, you'll hit the Game Guardian button, and its menu will appear, translucently on top of your game. There is no game-halting feature, so you'll have to be quick and clever with your searches. Also, all actions within Game Guardian's menu will be quite slow to respond to your clicks, so you'll simply have to be patient. If you click the Search button, you can perform a known value search; clicking the Fuzzy button will allow you to perform unknown value searches. There is also a Searching Result List button, which allows you to switch FROM the search results to the Saved List (once in the Saved List, clicking the Saved List button will bring you back to the results list). This brings us to the most important feature available within Game Guardian: the ability to save codes, and load them back up at a later date, with names and values you can modify. Finally, you can use multiple codes simultaneously, and search for codes while existing codes are still being applied.


    Pros:

    Ability to save codes (with names and values)
    Ability to use multiple codes at once
    Ability to search for codes while existing codes are enabled


    Cons:

    Menu responses are quite slow
    No game-halting feature
    No text-based label search feature
    Requires you to load an ad link for full functionality
    No ability to manually enter codes (enter address and value previously discovered or shared by another hacker)




    GameKiller

    GameKiller, last of the three, has the least comfortable interface, and what some may consider a crippling problem, but it does possess one feature that neither of the other two have. GameKiller forces you to follow a link to another product apparently created by the author, after which you can close the browser and re-open GameKiller. Fine, not much different from the other two, and it actually saves you the effort of manually clicking the ad link, so really, it's better this way. Moving on, the major issue with GameKiller is that you must select a process that's currently running in the background, while you're still within the GameKiller main menu. This means any game that doesn't stay resident (any game that really closes when you close it) is simply out of the question. Once you've found a game that keeps itself alive but dormant and allows you to hook it with GameKiller, opened GameKiller and selected and hooked the game in question, begun playing the game, and decided you're ready to hack something, you'll use the Home button (hold down and switch apps, or press and manually open GameKiller from the Android Launcher), and return to the GameKiller menu. From here, you can either enter a value, click the search button (magnifying lens icon) and embark on a known value search, or leave the value field blank, click the search button, go back to your game, affect whatever you need to affect in the game, return to GameKiller, leave the value field blank again, click the search button, and choose the type of unknown value comparison to perform against the initial search. A little unwieldy and not intuitive if I hadn't told you (or you hadn't read Help within GameKiller), but at least there's an unknown value search feature somewhere. Next, GameKiller does allow you to use multiple codes at once, even while searching for others, and to name your codes. However, there's no save feature, so once you've closed GameKiller and cleared it from memory (phone restart, task killer app, etc), or begun hacking another game, your codes are gone. You also have the interesting option of choosing between only searching within the most common areas of memory used by your game (the default, and I assume the default for the other two apps as well), a slightly larger area, or the entirety of memory. I haven't run into a situation in which I couldn't hack a code within the normal, constrained area of memory, but at least the option is there if you need it. Aside from that, GameKiller's one saving grace is the ability to manually add a code, by entering the address and value, which you could obtain from a previous hacking session, a hacking session using another hacking app, or from an online code database or friend who's already hacked the game you're playing. I'm utterly perplexed that the other two apps haven't implemented this feature.


    Pros:

    Quick interface (no in-game interface, thus no delay caused by your phone multi-tasking)
    Ability to choose between partial (most likely area) or full memory searches
    Ability to manually enter codes by address and value
    Ability to use multiple codes at once
    Ability to search for codes while existing codes are enabled


    Cons:

    No game-halting feature
    No text-based label search feature
    Requires you to load an ad link for full functionality
    No ability to save codes


    If only there was an application that allowed for GameCIH2's speed, versatile app-calling by hotkey or translucent toolbar, text-based label search, and game-halting feature; Game Guardian's ability to save codes, use multiple codes at once, and search for codes while using existing codes; and GameKiller's ability to choose between varying chunks of memory for searching, and ability to manually enter codes. If only this Android hacking app would either be free, or cost a nominal, one-time fee, and have no ad-driven functionality. Then we could really get some Android hacking going, and begin implementing more interesting, advanced features (breakpoint/watchpoint, debugging, etc). Perhaps sometime in the near future, this will occur...

      Of course it's legal hehe, but companies don't want their games being hacked and ruined for others but I tend to play single player games so I don't care. Nice info by the way Lazy but I have none of those ads on my end, Game Guardian works fine with no ads or anything and I just rooted a nabi I bought this weekend and installed this app with no ads. GameCIH2 must be newer because I use the standard GameCIH and it has this bullshit message that says full functionality is available, it basically needs an internet connection to unlock it full interface (lame). Do we have any droid programmers here? we could definitely use a better program for cheats but Game Guardian is the best of the 3 because I can actually look through the memory and add those addresses to the saved codes list. I wish it would allow me to edit 8 or 16 bit in hex from any direction but it only edits the end of the values not from the front.

        well if theres for offline games its fine

        i just wonder why theres several user play cheating but dunt get banned yet
        the server service still refuse any complain about fair multiplayer playthrough

            The Game Killer link is where the Game Guardian link should be.

              I use these programs all the time on my rooted Samsung Note 2, I wish there something with debugging features since many of these games use DMA.

                  To avoid ads in android games, put your phone in airplane mode. Most of them don't have to be connected to the Internet in order for you to play them. I just did this, and it works with Bejeweled. Just don't forget to turn airplane mode off when you are done.

                    ...not really hacking-related, but OK

                    Incidentally, we're tinkering with an Android version of Artemis, which would be open source and much more versatile than existing Android hacking apps. Stay tuned.

                        Using GameGuardian on my GPD XD. There was another Cheat Engine App I read about, and after trying it.......yeah, still no idea WTF it is supposed to do.
                        So far, I have found Cheats for Pinball Arcade. Pretty much the same as the Vita Build, with how the Tables share Addresses for the "Always Ball 1" Code I am doing. After I get that done, will see about LEGO Star Wars:TCS, then Street Fighter IV.
                        GameGuardian has been Recently Updated also. Works pretty fast as far as I can tell. Has a Pointer Search ability, they do kind of need to Label the Icons though. Just starting out with it, and the 2nd time I tried it, I thought the Magnafying Glass with # was to Search for Known Values.......nope. Just the MG alone is for that.
                        For those that are unaware, Users need to confirm that they have Root Access, also need to Grant Root Access via SuperSU# . Not sure how effective it is, but GameGuardian also released a Non-Rooted Version, probably with Ads.
