The special colony has been damaged by an asteroid. Your mission is to turn off Cray-5's SuperComputer before it completes the autodestruction sequence. Your pulse trembles when you think about it, but it's not only your future which is on the line: it's about the future of all humankind!
Mid XXII Century
Pollution and its consequences made life on Earth impossible. Earth governments came together to fund a plan of outer space colonization.
The Governments created a huge spaceship to carry a true continent, with different eco-systems, and about 5,000 brave humans, travelling through space to find a new planet that was suitable to host mankind.
As mankind has shown its inability to take care of itself, the control of the colony was under the command of a Super Computer, called Cray-5, which monitored all parameters to ensure the optimum conditions for those travelling inside. Mankind, living safely throughout the voyage (final destination unknown) is its raison d'etre.
As the lead designer of Cray-5, you did not hesitate to volunteer to go on the ship. The perfection of the processor made it impossible for there to be any problems during the voyage. The mission objective was fascinating.
No-one expected the catastrophe!
Three years after the ship's departure, an asteroid hits one of the ship's nuclear reactors located next to the Cray-5's control module. It causes a massive leak of radioactive material. It also damages the computer.
The Cray-5 supercomputer decides to proceed with self-destruction of the ship and all its inhabitants. It starts the countdown to an explosion that will destroy everything.
At that moment, you volunteer to disconnect the computer and, later, repair it. You know that it will not be easy, as there are many self-protection systems installed to prevent sabotage. These will make things dificult.
Your pulse trembles when you think about it; but it's not only your life on the line, it's the future of all mankind, and all your life on Earth. It cannot slip through your fingers.
Are you ready?
The game starts when you first enter the main control module of Cray-5. Once there, you should disconnect the host, and go to the escape pod to return to the main hall.
For safety reasons, the Cray-5 control module is separated from the rest of the ship, cannot be accessed from it, and, moreover, is segmented into nine watertight levels.
To disconnect the host computer, you should turn off each and every one of the switches scattered in nine zones. In each area, you will find a teleporter that may carry you to a variable number of other areas, depending on how many switches you have turned off.
Danger/Barriers You Will Find
The control module is filled with small droids that are responsible for the maintenance and self-protection system, but nobody knows how they will respond after the impact, with such high levels of radioactivity. So you would better stay away from them.
There are also particularly dangerous areas: Energy storage, electromagnetic generators, self-defence barricades, etc... be careful where you pass through.
To make matters worse, radioactivity is so high that it damages the protective suit, and you cannot resist forever. This will limit the time available to complete the mission.
One of the defence systems is the high partitioning of the module. Not only is it divided into nine zones with restricted access, but there are also several coded doors that separate the interior spaces. You'll have to find the keys that allow you to open them in order to slip.
Advantages You Have
To fulfil your mission you have the latest model sheathed spacesuit, with a high resistance to radioactivity, and equipped with a powerful jet-pack.
Also, you have a quantum pulse rifle, which will allow you to "deactivate" every droid you find in your way.
The suit power is limited, but there are several recharge devices in the control module to help you regain your strength.
And, best of all benefits: Your wits and your reflexes.
