If this is R.E.X., who's the bald guy on the box?
Whoever designed this interface sure did like green words. That's pretty much half of the screen covered by words. What does any of this stuff even MEAN anyway?
In SYSTEM, we've got CPU, MEM, CRYPTO, PWR and DNA. So I suppose I can upgrade my robo-bits, but I don't know why I'd do that. I don't have any DNA, apparently, which sounds pretty serious. I should look into that first. In BIOSTATS, I've got 753 ORGANICS, 1000ML of EXOSKEL and 49 ML of NANITES. Is that good? I don't understand.
I've got all kinds of AMMO but I only have one gun, which is a swish silenced automatic pistol doo-dad. My favourite!
These floaty sinky turret things love to make all kinds of whooshing and blasting noises. There's something up with the sound in this game, because I can hear the sounds from all over the level no matter where I am. I think all the enemies are already aware of where I am, because all I can hear is a constant stream of alien screeches and laser blasts.
I turned the interface off, did you notice? Now I can see what's to the left and right of me! I don't know how much AMMO I have or what my BIOSTATS are, but that's okay. They were only using up power anyway.
When R.E.X. runs out of power, the interface starts flickering off and on, and the words 'POWER CRITICAL' appear on the screen. It doesn't affect R.E.X.'s health, but it'll definitely make your eyes go funny.
I finally figured out where the change weapon buttons were so I can finally use the other weapons. The change weapon buttons are left and right square bracket. Space is 'use' and X is 'jump'. Hold Alt to strafe. These (unconfigurable) controls were devised by an octopus.
If that invisible punk comes near me again, he'll get a taste of my Cyborg dukes.
With this rapid fire plasma spewing crossbow gizmo, I'm able to spray spiky red energy balls everywhere so I can more or less see where the invisible guys are.
On my sixth playthrough, I figured out to use the TARGETER and the INFOCOMPASS. The TARGETER makes your crosshair slightly more visible and is of absolutely no use when fighting the invisible enemies. The INFOCOMPASS puts your co-ordinates at the top of the screen and tells you when you've picked up a weapon. It doesn't say what the weapon is, just that you've picked one up.
I loaded a save I made just before I went outside and, if I'm not mistaken, all the enemies and items reappear when you load a save game. That's beyond stupid, that's just strange.
Of course, 'KITTY HAWK' isn't the correct answer. That would be too easy. There are multiple clues in the computer and there's no indication which one refers to the teleporter on the level that you're on. You've got to work out the answers for all the clues and keep trying them one by one until you hit upon the correct one. In this case, the correct answer is 'KITTYHAWK' without a space.
One of the other clues is 'Where was Rex built?'. I'm glad that wasn't the correct question, because I honestly have no idea.
This game really does suck. It came out around the same time as Quake, but it looks like this and it doesn't have mouse controls. Don't play it. It's not even funny.
