Back cover summary:[1]The Hardys Are Out To Pull The Plug On A High-Voltage Game of Video Vengeance!

The Videomundo Corporation, makers of Hack Attack---the hottest, coolest video game on the market---is holding a Hack Attack challenge in New York. Joe Hardy is psyched: he's sized up the competition, and he's set his sights on the $50,000 prize awaiting the winner.

But when you play for big money, you're playing with fire---and the Hardy Boys are the ones in the hot seat. A stolen cartridge leads them to suspect that the game's been rigged. There's only one way to find out for sure---leave the video screen behind and head out onto the mean streets of New York to meet the video villains head-on!
