Spybotics: The Nightfall Incident Strategy Guide



Prelude and Table of Contents:


Spybotics: The Nightfall Incident is a turn-based tactical game in Shockwave. The game is magnificently simple, with outstanding game mechanics as well as entertaining graphics and flavor. The game is hosted by Lego at http://www.lego.com/eng/spybotics/game.asp and is completely free (it's a promotional for their now-defunct Spybotics Robots).


You probably already knew that, or you wouldn't have found this Strategy Guide. (If not, go play instead of reading this guide! The game's mouse-driven interface is easy to understand and the in-game tutorial is quite good. Don't worry about making a wrong turn – you can't die, you never lose units or money, and you can get more money by replaying earlier scenarios. In fact, this entire guide assumes that you've already been playing the game. Come back here if you get stuck, or after you finish the game.)
