Card Challenge: Breach (Plus Badge)

Serious Business Challenge


It's time to fight back against teh l33t hax0rz pwning teh innerwebs! Hone your skillz in Breach to unlock the Healing Salve card and protect the sacred Lolcats forever!

The Chosen One Zero One Badge (hard – 30 points)
Complete the first 5 levels to unlock Infinity Mode, then survive for 101 seconds in Breach




The gameplay is really quite simple. You are a "Pod" in the hard drive of a computer, trying to dodge the red and green viruses (Christmas colors? <:) to make it out alive...

Think of it as your last brain cell trying to live after you've had "One too many" for 30 years ;P

This game is controlled purely with the mouse. Drag to move, and click to fire. The game is a simple mouse avoider, but with an interesting twist - you can shoot the objects you're trying to dodge. But be careful! After you shoot them, they will dislodge and come flying at you! Shooting the barriers down is essential when there's a full wall of viruses.

The levels get harder by adding even more twists - new obstacles in each level.

Level 1: Standard green viral blocks

Level 2: Indestructible red wall blocks

Level 3: Random speed changes

Level 4: Random pauses

Level 5: Explosive orange hazard blocks

"Two other strategies to think about when you're playing this game are: - The 'dodge everything' one. Only shoot when you need to, so like if there was a full line of virus binary, or if you're trapped. The rest of the time, just dodge everything.

- The 'shoot everything' one. Shoot everything, and leave your mouse in pretty much the same space, with the occasional moving up and down to avoid flying blocks of green binary."

Thanks to sarah_briarmoss for the above quotes :) *Hugs*



The final level is what you unlock after beating Level 5... It is called 'Infinity Mode' and this is how you get the hard badge.

Warning On... Some may call this a "Cheat"... use at your own discretion.

Infinity mode is even harder than Level 5, but there is 1 simple trick/its variation which can help. A little before coming up to a wall hit "Alt" (should be beside your windows Key for windows user, or right click using your mouse... both do the same thing, and what happens is when you do that, the "Pod" is no longer controlled by your mouse, and just floats... Till you click on the other side of your obstacle, with some practice you can skip by half a page without losing any lives! Be careful though, sometimes this doesn't work, and you end up losing a life.

Warning Off... I Like to hug people in chat, Must be from those days of hugging myself in the institute...

Another useful trick to use is for when you lose a life, and you become invincible for a few seconds. During this time I suggest you get as far to the right as you can, as you don't lose any lives for going through red or green blocks while you are in your "Gray State".

In other words, use dying to its fullest and utmost advantage :D

The best way to win this game, though, is to practice. Especially practicing dodging. Use your peripheral vision at all times to see ahead, and try to work out the best way to go. Remember, when playing Breach, always look for the easiest way out! -pyrojr06 (Notice how I used someone else's joke... Irony?)

Most of all, have fun! Come into the van and you can chat with 2DArray, he is in there most of the day.


If you need specific help in any game, or challenge, just track me down and ask, I'll do my best to help you, and if I can't... I'll find someone who can! =D

Don't forget, that when you shoot a block, it comes flying at you. If you use the shoot everything technique, you must be moving at all times
