Hey guys, hopefully you can help me find this game that I spent hours on as a kid, it would mean the world to me in terms of nostalgia to find it again.

I played this game around 8 years ago I feel like.
So, i'm pretty sure its a browser game. The graphics were
very normal, I feel like alright/on par for the time, but totally 2D, mostly tiles and a map that showed the levels connected in a web.
So the game revolved around you hacking different levels, increasing in difficulty, until you reached the top level and finished the game. A woman sent you messages and told you what to do and gave you context with what you were doing. Each level was turn-based, where you were given some "programs" which were strings of tiles that could move around and attack other computer controlled tiles. Once you defeat all the computer tiles in the level, you clear it, and you have successfully "hacked" into that part of the network.

The programs all had different names, attacks, health, and movement speeds. Each program was a string of blocks, where the first block was a picture of the kind of program it was. I believe that every time the program got attacked, it lost a certain amount of tiles from its tail based on the kind of attack. Once it reached 0 tiles, the program died.
Some examples of programs were like "spider" which had one health, could move really fast, and had an attack called "byte". Another was "surgeon" (there was also a "surgeon 2.0 that you got later in the game? it couldve been called knife or doctor also) which had a healing move and a slice move. I think there was also a tank kind of program that had a lot of health, but was really slow. There was a wide variety of programs, and some that were level specific.

Please!! Help me if you remember this game at all, or if you think you do!!! I would be so grateful, I'll even venmo or paypal you a couple bucks too probably, since i'd definitely pay to play this game again!!!

Thank you!!

Is it something like Slavehack, Codelink, Hacker Experience 1? I am sorry they are just wild guesses until someone experienced with this game genre comes here.

ahh no its not any of those, but thanks for suggesting!!!
the game im thinking of is a lot less text heavy, and less of a more "serious" hacking game. it was just the premise of the game that revolved around hacking, not trying to simulate how hacking actually is.
but thank you!!

Mobygames has a list of games with a hacking theme, maybe it is found there:

I saw only three games were documented for a 'Browser' platform in this list.

Tangential, but Squidi's 300 describes a few potential games like that. The description reminded me of these.

Do you recall if it was a flash game with animation and sounds, or more just in browser html and simple?

Yeah, not that one Sad .
It was definitely more detailed than just basic shapes, and I'm pretty sure that there were sounds and background music in the game. I'm fairly certain the animation was there, i remember there being a futuristic/computer-grid-like disappear effect as some of the programs lost health. It was a simple game, but had a good amount of detail graphically. It seemed a bit ahead of most browser games, especially all those years back.
