WINNING THE GAME
OBJECTIVES - Every level has a specific list of
objectives that must be met. These objectives are
your Automap which is accessible via the key
during game play.
To win a level, complete all of the objectives listed
in the Automap and then find the animated red arrow
which serves as an indicator to the exit of your
current level and the entrance to the next section.

how to get around in the world of Eradicator. Once at
this screen, will cycle through all of the help
screens. will leave the Help system.
Again, the key will toggle the Automap and show
your current mission objectives.

question mark icons in the playfield for even more
An ancient, alien power rooted in the bowels of the
planet Ioxia (eye-oh-sha) has sprung back to life,
all mining on Ioxia's three moons - the only known
sources of the precious element, Mazrium.
Mazrium is the basis for all current technologies and
power sources, and also has life-giving properties. It
is vital to the survival of the inhabitants of this
Two days ago, an energy surge was detected by one of
the orbiting mining vessels. It originated from
within the only remaining Ioxian Citadel (left from
the "Great Uprising" two centuries ago). A squad of
Cyrops mercenaries was sent in to investigate.
The satellite feed that was received indicated
something has risen from the ashes and is attempting
regain control of the Mazrium.
Moments after their insertion, the Cyrops mercs were
destroyed. The Citadel from ages past had
snapped to life - reinstating the ion shield that
prevents access to the three Mazrium moons and sending
the entire galaxy into chaos.
No Armada can penetrate the shield; no weapons can
disable the Citadel. Strategists believe a single
could slip past the defenses which were designed for
large scale assaults and shutdown the shield's
power source from within. The Mazrium must be mined;
it is the lifeblood of the galaxy.
The Universal Mining Guild has called upon the
services of their most ambitious mercenary, Eleena
Brynstaarl. In this desperate hour, they are more than
willing to meet her demanded price.
The planet of Treydan has selected their most
impressive warrior to be sent in search of a solution
2dilemma facing the galaxy. Kamchak possesses both the
strength and the sheer will that such a mission
requires. A hero of the galaxy is in the making.
Trapped on one of the Mazrium moons when the Ioxian
Citadel kicked on, Dan Blaze wasn't looking for
anything but his next load of Mazrium to mine. Now
that all his fellow cybernetic miners are dead, he
must find a way off of this lifeless world. The only
course of action seems to be deeper exploration of the
strange Citadel controlling the ion shield.
Centuries past, an ancient race of warriors claimed
the planet Ioxia as their home. The three orbiting
moons, Pyxis, Eyre, and Quod are the only remaining
sites where the precious element Mazrium can be
The Ioxians hoarded the Mazrium and sold small rations
to the neighboring solar systems - demanding
outrageous fees and services in return. Eventually,
after suffering under this extortion, the native races
the nearest worlds attempted an assault on the planet.
Thus began the "Great Uprising."
Unfortunately, the Armada met with an impenetrable
field of ion energy that encompassed the moons and
Ioxia. Furthermore, the Ioxians had superior bio-mech
weaponry which managed to cripple the Armada in
the first few sorties of ionic pulses.
During this assault, something or someone disabled the
forcefield long enough to allow the remains of the
Armada to sweep across the planet's surface and wreak
havoc on the Ioxian strongholds known as
Citadels. Warriors on the planet Treydan claim the
unknown aid came from one of their clan...a trained
spy named Brakk. This claim was never substantiated.
In the end, the Ioxians released "Last Strike" - a
terrifying wave of energy and isotopic Mazrium
that swept across the planet's surface, obliterating
ninety percent of the native fauna and flora, leaving
wasteland encased in a noxious cloud that would last
Only one Citadel remained among the ruins.
The Alliance, as the collected races who conquered the
Ioxians came to be known, signed a treaty to
share the Mazrium moons. Peace has prospered for
centuries. Until now...

The Main Menu has several options that can vary
depending on whether or not you have an active game
running or you are just starting a new game.
HELP - takes you to the Help screens which offer some
useful information and hints on playing Eradicator.
NEW GAME - goes to the character selection screen
where you can access the 3 characters, and start
the game from the beginning.
LOAD GAME - load a previously saved game.

MULTIPLAYER - allows you to start or join a
multiplayer game (more information on this below).

total viewing space - the entire screen. A few
notches down from that you will get a partial 'status

the play window will begin to shrink.

you wish to assign a key to. Then, hit to
remove all key assignments for that command or
to assign a new key or mouse button.
We recommend choosing the ADVANCED DEFAULTS from the
main options menu first, then assigning
any movement keys in here. We feel this gives the
greatest viewing dynamic in first or third person mode
and allows a more immersive view of the environment.
NOTE: It is currently possible to assign the same key
to multiple commands (for example, fire and use
may both be the key). This will cause both
actions to happen when that key is pressed. Please
check the key assignments closely.
One of the unique features in Eradicator is the
picture-in-picture (PIP) technology. When a remote
is activated or when using the walking bombs,
controllable hoverdrone, missiles, or proximity mine,
small window showing the weapon's or camera's view
will appear in the upper left corner of the screen.
You can swap to this view, at which point the player
view becomes the PIP and the main view is whatever
was in the PIP. In this way, you can move the camera
at any angle for a better view, or if it's a weapon,
guide the weapon like a remote controlled device.
You may find control stations for the Citadel's own
soldiers and defenses. Standing directly in front of
these stations and pressing your use key activates the
PIP to show you remote locations within the map.
You may iconify the PIP, which will then take less
screen space and increase performance. The default key

Translation: "Victory! Weak ones will fall at my feet,
their bodies smashed by my power. Victory!" -Kamchak
Background: A proven hero on his world, Kamchak has a

destroy the loxian defense web by penetrating the
defenses right to the planet's core, and doing
whatever it takes to smash the main power source.

Warrior Blood Rite of the Clan of Treydan at a very
age. He is a vastly experienced battle veteran and is
not easily intimidated. He relishes each and every
combat experience he enters.

physique allow him to withstand a lot of punishment
before succumbing to defeat. He moves methodically and
takes his time to make sure all threats have
ELEENA BRYNSTAARL: MERCENARY
Appearance: Female, humanoid feline. Ruthless and
ravaging. Bi-pedal motion, sharp bony claws on her
feet and hands, and a taut, muscular frame.
"Prantis arasi mana porrrrrterra; meuw contas arasisi
Translation: "I can get anything fast; I can get it
anywhere faster." -Eleena
Background: Eleena has frequently done work for the
Universal Mining Guild. When the crisis on loxia
came along, she saw it as a wonderful opportunity for
a little work and a lot of cash. Given the option,
Eleena will avoid unnecessary conflicts and attempt to
outmaneuver potential adversaries. However, she is
more than capable of overcoming most any opponent, and
will frequently outflank an enemy and attack
>from behind for maximum efficiency.
Main Objective: She's been hired by the UMG as a
backup in case the Alliance's brave hero Kamchak is
unsuccessful in his attempt. She is a mercenary in
attitude and profession; her fee for saving the
Mazrium for the UMG will allow her to retire to her
Actions/Abilities: Eleena's natural speed and agility,
combined with her extensive training with sneak
attacks and use of her natural claw-like weaponry,
make her a very dangerous foe.

physically, Eleena's dexterity makes her hard to hit.
feline attributes, she is able to jump higher and
farther than most enemies she has encountered.
DAN BLAZE: MINING ENGINEER

means possible; which means taking out the Citadel's
Actions/Abilities: The Miner's Guild always implants
certain cybernetic devices in each of its Recon &
Destroy personnel so they can survive in the field
while doing survey missions and the like.
Play Style: Blaze's abilities give him a very balanced
style of play - he is powerful in hand-to-hand, but is
excellent with any kind of weaponry. He's not very
fast, nor overly powerful, so he must also use the
to defeat opponents.

All three characters are armed with a version of the
Cynetics model XG9101 Multi-cannon, with some
personal modifications unique to each character.
The XG9101 is designed to fire a myriad of projectiles
of almost any shape or size. It is equipped with a
neural-circuitry that learns how to best use many ammo
types it is exposed to; and, it can be upgraded to
increase its firing potential and lethality. Aside
>from the various ammo types available, a temporary
microchip upgrade can be located within most levels to
make many of these projectiles more powerful.
Ammunition for the XG9101 can be found throughout the
Unique to each character is his or her style of close
range attack. Kamchak has a devastating punch;
Eleena uses implanted titanium claws that retract into
bone sheaths when she needs to use the fine
manipulation of her fingertips; Dan Blaze swings his
miner's pickaxe - part of his personalized XG9101

Gun Turrets: These fixed emplacements are lethal at
any distance. They can fire at any range and track
via heat so they can always see you.
LSD (Land Security Droid): These fellows are the
standard guards and are in generous supply. They are
the basic grunts of the Citadel security force.
HSD (Hover Security Droid): This nasty will attack you
relentlessly from the air. Explosives and rapid fire
weapons are your only chances against these enemies.
Patrol Eyes: Just one of these can cause a lot of
trouble. If it sees you, it will set off an alarm
everyone of your presence and closing off areas of the
level. Try to waste it before it sees you. There are
three types of these guardians - you must learn how
they operate and defend against them.
