"It's 2291, and things are bad. You're a guy with a three bots to keep you company, and a your hardened space terminal to keep you safe. You're nearly broke, but you know that they'll be coming soon for what you've got left, hundreds of them."
You are the player.
Using either W, A, S and D or the arrow keys you can move to any adjacent tile so long as there is not a blocking terminal objects there. If you step onto a tile with something that can harm you, you will terminate and have to start again.
You start off in builder mode. In this you can place and remove tiles at the cost of credits. You can not terminate as you will be prevented from stepping over deadly tiles and switches, droids and your bots will not move. When you are robbing a terminal you turn into naut mode. You can now terminate if you're not careful and you have access to any tools you put in your inventory.
Your inventory has 8 slots for items. Each slot can contain unlimited of the same item, however you will lose them all upon leaving another naut's terminal, even if you reach the vault.
