NORTHAMPTON, UK Weds 25th March 2009
With every story you have your heroes and also your fair share of enemies that like to get in the heroes’ way! Well, just in case you were wondering, this story is no different!
These enemies are tough, and each one has different weaknesses so you’d better know which are which!
Mad Scientist: Shoot the Scientist before he can catch you and do his own‘Experiments’ on you.
Zombie Dummy: Relentless and with no fear, these attack in numbers. Spray with Fire or Ice to avoid becoming one!
Skeleton Dummy: Slow, but with nothing left to be afraid of, Skeleton Dummies should be burned to..well…dust!
Alien: Aliens want to‘abduct you’ from your mission. They are quick, so be quicker!
Medieval Dummy: These will try and separate you from your head. Long range shots/quick punches are a good plan of attack.
Lava Troll: Lava Trolls hate nothing more than being cooled off with a well aimed ice blast. Keep out of reach though as they will singe your suit.
Ice Troll: Living on ice doesn’t stop Ice Trolls getting hot under the collar. Some‘real heat’ will see their anger‘melt away’ along with them.
Radioactive Soldier: Well trained and willing to serve D-TROIT to the end, make sure you shoot them before they shoot you!
Crocodile Dummy: They may look cute, but their tail can inflict a severe blow. Fire from long range with Freezing Ice.
Dragon Flower: DO NOT SMELL! The best plan here is to AVOID at all costs.
