Release Date: February 20th, 2009

Scaled Yes/No: Yes
(10) Cyklon Centurion
If an alarm is set off, battle a Cyklon Centurion
Yix: Balthar's robots drove all of us here to the edge of town. We've been able to barricade ourselves here out the outskirts.
Yix: We can't open the barricade for you without risking everyone else... but there may be another way in.
Yix: If you can get into the project delivery tunnels and open the 4 steam matrix gates, then you'll have a safe way into town.
Yix: You'll have to work fast. Once you activate the steam, you'll only have a short time to alter the matrix so it will release the gate lock!
Yix: There are intercom tubes next to each gate, so you let me know when you're ready for me to start the steam.
Yix: If you take too long, or you can't fix the matrix before the steam is released... the pressure alarms will draw some of the Cyklon guards.
Yix: Don't worry, it's much easier than it sounds and I'll walk you through it over the intercom tubes!
Yix: Grab your pipe wrench, <Character>! We might only have one shot at this.
Once you fight your way through some monsters you will reach the first gate...
<Character>: Ok, Um.. Testing, 1, 2... YIX?! I'M AT THE FIRST GATE! WHAT DO I DO NOW?!?!
Yix: First, stop yelling. I can hear you fine at your normal speaking volume.
Yix: Next you'll have to rework the steam matrix to open the gate
<Character>: How do I do that?
Yix: As soon as you approach the gate the steam will start making its way to the matrix. You will only have a short time before it starts filling the pipes!
Yix: The steam will start at the steam valve in the Upper Left.
Yix: You will need to start clicking the boxes of the matrix and cycle through the pieces...
Yix: ... and build a path for the steam down to the pressure gauge in the lower right.
Yix: Remember, the steam will only go in one direction and it will always go straight when it can!
Yix: If you don't get the matrix reworked in time, it will set off a pressure alarm and you'll have to fight a cyklon guard and do it over.
Yix: Ready to get started?
