GAMEPLAY

The Game Interface is very simple. Battlement introduces an inovative interactive cinematic genre. As you move around, it switches from one still shot to another, but there are so many of them, from every conceivable angle, that this is rarely a problem. There are occasional moving video sequences which can be interesting.

All interaction with the system is done using the mouse. Clicking on the center of the screen moves the player forward. Clicking on the side of the screen turns, or if appropriate will turn and then move. Objects are manipulated by clicking on them.

The Login facility is not enabled while you are playing the game. However, once you have received a Game Over screen then it becomes available. When you log back on, you can pick up where you left off.

There is a transfer facility and a redeem facility located at the bottom of the screen below the login. The transfer facility enables you to transfer points to other players so long as you know their TCODE and username. This becomes very helpful because in some cases you cannot advance in the game based on the number of points you alone can score. Therefore, to sacrifice points to another player, they would have to be a very good friend. There is no chat facility in battlement, but we encourage you to utilize the popular online chats such as twitter, facebook, etc., to communicate with your friends, especially when you need a point transfer.

MAPS
Battlement is set in trendy downtown Denver. Before the end of the game you will have visited all of the best establishments.

WALKTHROUGHS
In episode 1 The First Beatitude, You are in a trashed out DHA two-bedroom apartment. The "hit-you-over-the head" references to DHA are important clues as you advance in the game. The apartment has a guest bedroom (if you want to call it that!), a master bedroom, bathroom, living room and a kitchen. The bedrooms and living room have televisions that play different videos as you score more points in the game. Each room has items you need to collect to advance. You should watch the videos very carefully as they contain clues on how to score more points and find awards. But, you have to be strategic as you search for items because they are only available in a certain sequence. This is the part that makes the game hard. Because you need to watch the videos to get clues, but if you watch too many together, you will time out. And then you have to worry about Latravis and his wing-man, Toby again. "SPOILER ALERT!" Surely by now, there are some cheats online to get you through the sequences.

You must present two pieces of identification, along with the award certificate number, in order to pick up your merchandise. In some cases you will have to prove you are at least 18 years old to pick up the merchandise.

Visit these great merchants to see what your game awards can buy!
