Gameplay Overview

  • Two Vital Areas: The game board consists of two critical areas—the research station, featuring six sectors for your scientist's experiments, and the headquarters, where your engineer oversees bot preparations.

  • Four Action-Packed Rounds: Over the course of four rounds, you'll take numerous turns, each with two key options:

    • Engineer's Programming: Use your engineer to program a bot. Each round, you can select from three out of seven available actions, each offering unique advantages.

    • Scientist's Exploration: Deploy your scientist and a bot to a sector to perform a specific action, advancing your research and gaining valuable knowledge points.

  • Expanding Abilities: Your journey involves tasks like enhancing your lab, dispatching submarines, collecting crystals, and studying octopuses. These actions allow you to expand your team's capabilities and accumulate the knowledge points required for victory.

  • Lab Size Dilemma: Balancing the size of your lab, your personal stock, poses an additional challenge. While increasing its size provides convenience, it consumes precious time.
