Game-play mechanics

Structures Each structure has a blue power bar, which is depleted when performing actions or repairing itself. Charge a structure up by walking up to it and repeatedly pressing the action key.

Drill The drill gathers resources for building a second drill or building and upgrading turrets. Resources are displayed underneath the HQ building.

Turrets The turrets fire on enemies in range. Enemies will also attack the turret when fired upon. If the turret’s red heath bar drops to zero it will be destroyed and a new one will have to be built.

HQ The HQ must be protected at all costs. It will use its power to repair itself, but if it’s red health bar drops to zero the game is over.

Upgrading Turret fire rate can be upgraded up to level 5. Between enemy waves an icon will appear below each turret along with the cost of the upgrade. Stand on the icon and press the action button to purchase the upgrade.

Building The cost of building is displayed at each vacant hard point. To build or replace a turret or build the second drill, walk to the relevant hard point and press the action key.

Enemies Enemies will be spawned in waves of increasing numbers. They can only be destroyed by turrets, so keep them charged!
