Introduction

Dr X brought the world the city of Tomorrow, with robot dogs,and houses that clean themselves. MegaTech promptly fired him as soon as the last chrome brick was laid but Dr X has one final invention, a little virus named Tom. Help this little gremlin bring the city of Tomorrow back to the Stone Age by causing absolute mayhem throughout the city. An Action-puzzler. The puzzle comes from rearranging circuits to spread the virus. The Action comes from dodging anti-virus drones while doing it. IndieDB review.

  • Collect more energy than the HUD capsules can contain

    You steal energy from an opponent by getting too close. They have a little orb on their front/rear, which is what you need to steal. When you steal energy from an enemy this is added to your energy bar at the top of the HUD. Steal enough of these so that your bar hits the maximum capacity. Level 3-10 is an excellent level to complete this as you should also obtain Coup d’etat , Unobtanium Chain and Adamantium Chain.

  • Beat Level 3.10 WITHOUT Dropping Any Glitches

    Simply complete the pizzle without dropping any glitches. You will have to die at least once to do this, so make sure you steal some energy before you die, so you respawn. The puzzle is a very simple one. Thanks to SFK64 on Youtube for this video. (The level number is different on the video as it was not filmed on the PS Vita version)

  • Beat Level 3.04 WITHOUT Stealing Energy

    To beat this level without stealing energy you will have to drop a glitch that will kill 2 colliding enemies. This will give you an extra 10 energy points and will allow you to complete the level just in time. The puzzle is very simple, you just have to be quick. Thanks to SFK64 on YouTube for this video.

  • Infect all levels, leaving none skipped

    See Gold Boat

    Tips

    • Complete a puzzle on your own first, and then take a picture with your phone of the solution just before you move the final piece. You will then be able to very quickly beat the puzzle and get the gold.
    • The gold score is based on how much energy you have left. Steal as much energy as you can to boost your score nice and high and you should easily beat the gold score on every level.
