= = = GAME DESCRIPTION = = =
You command a team of 4 specialists infiltrating an AAHW cloning facility. You must retrieve vials of DNA that the Auditor is using to create stronger agents. You must shoot and stab your way through masses of ever improving enemies. Collect weapons, armor, and items to help you reach the Auditor's tower and complete your mission.

= = = GAME PLAY TIPS = = =
- This is a turn-based strategy game that uses AP (Action Point) mechanics. Fans of Fallout 1 and 2 will be familiar with the game-play.
- In each battle, try to defeat all enemies as quickly as possible. Each of your characters has a limited amount of AP that are used to move and attack.
- Moving horizontally, forward or backward, takes 1 AP per tile. Moving vertically needs no AP.
- If you have no more AP, press the End Turn button. You'll to regain some AP but your enemies will have a chance to attack you.
- There is no "Level-up" System. Your HP, damage, AP, and other stats are determined by the armor and weapons.
- Some equipment have special abilities which are displayed in their description. Figuring out how best to use them, is entirely on you.
- You cannot change your character's classes. Learn to optimize their use.
- Armor is subtle and relies partly on luck, but it can be invaluable in many situations.
- Certain enemies drop items which will help out in difficult battles.
- You don't NEED to explore the entire facility... but it does help quite a bit.
- If you lose a man, the Higher Powers will resurrect him after you finish the battle. Assuming, of course, that you win.
- Save often. Srsly.

= = = ABOUT THIS GAME (it's quite lengthy) = = =
The inspiration for this game was the "kill-team" dynamic between Deimos and Sanford, as opposed to the "one-man army" feel of Hank. I want players to feel like they're constantly upgrading and improving their team. I've also tried to replicate the weapons and armor used in the Madness series as Krinkels portrayed them, then added a twist of my own art-style. I had planned this for Madness Day 2010, but it my estimated 2 week production time became 2 months. Still, I'm quite happy with the result and hope you enjoy it!

Awesome!!!

This game is awesome! I loved how a single class could be played with many different styles depending on your equipments. This game also introduces team play, something non-existant in most other madness series.

Well I did go through the walkthrough, but didn't use most of it, since i kind of built all my characters quite differently from the standard build. Hank's coat is probably the most IMBA equip ever, with my CQB able to solo all 3 clones(Deimos, Sanford & Hank) alone. He was the tank and "hooker" of my team, equipped with a mere katana(try the method below with the 3:16 sword, total pwnage!) and hook.

After disposing of the 4th wave, my entire team was stunned since i killed the clown last. The 3 clones killed of 3 of my characters and i was about to give up, when i noticed my last CQB continued to remain standing turn after turn. It turns out Hank's Coat(75% chance to deflect) with a armor class of 4(34% chance to block) supposedly grants over a 100% chance to avoid damage.

Deflect actually reflects the damage back to the attacker. Since both Hank's and Sanford's attacks can be deflected, and deflect's counterattack cannot miss, I ignored the walkthrough's advice on taking out Deimos' 1st, spamming flashbang to stun him every turn instead. Deflect quickly takes out Sandford.

My character still got hit occasionally, but a medkit simply takes care of that(I almost never used any of my items for the whole game and ended up with over a 100 medkits and almost 30 flashbangs).

Hank is a pain to kill, with his high hp and his 75% chance to deflect. Suprisingly, the counterattack from deflect, can also be deflected. I got to see my character duel swords with Hank repeatedly until one of them finally got hit. It was like russian roulette with swords! xD Since i had almost an unlimited amount of medkits at my disposal, Hank stood no chance.

With Deimos remaining, i kept him stunned with flashbangs and kept attacking him. With his annoying flashbangs, it took me about 20 hits before 1 of my blows made contact, which easily killed him with his fragile hp.

The only thing i found lacking in this game was that there should be an Undo button, or allow the character to change between modes(moving/attacking), or let players click on the tile with the unit instead of clicking on the unit itself. I don't know if its only a problem for me, but many times i find it hard to move vertically when i'm in the middle of a bunch of enemies. Its also really hard to move to a spot 1 square above a unit, especially if it has a huge hitbox.

A hint to all, dun waste your smoke grenades and especially your flashbangs on normal enemies. They're critical in boss fights. Without them, you're screwed~

Just Beat IT!!!

Really fun! At the end it was just Hank (the clone) vs. Hank (my character). Also, it took me forever to figure out that the Saucy (Tactical Nuke guys) can only be hurt by the weapon they're holding. Doubling up weapons helped a lot when taking them down. Giving all your guys at least one weapon in common with another of your team can make the difference between a survivable round and an annoying restart because the Saucy just killed the ONLY guy with that gun...

Exciting,

I love the game but there is alot of bugs, 1 i cant click on anything after using a flash bang. 2 when i use a smoke grenade the effect will still be in play after the smoke goes away and many turns later. 3 sometimes after a battle my characters will have zombie hands. but overall te customization and the gameplay alltogether are really terrific.

Very nice 5/5 10/10

Possibly one of the best games on newgrounds... not too easy or hard and it actually requires some form of strategy to beat it as opposed to clicking like a zombie.

Really Good!

If it had more customization, and difficulty levels(The game is too Hard) and Levels, It would be even better!
