Read on for your mission briefing from Manchester's Energy Commander.

Agents! We need your help.

I’m the Commander, Chief of City Operations, one heck of a bassoon player and I completed my bicycle safety training in record time. It’s my honour and duty to brief you on your mission.

I’m sorry to say that all the electricity in our dear city has gone down. We’re in grave danger and we need a team of expendable… I mean, skilled agents (that’s you, of course) to break into the ancient 1970’s control room, re-boot the system, and get our city’s energy back online. We only have half an hour before the whole city shuts down for good. It’s up to you.

Oh, and agents: keep your wits about you. There’s no telling what relics those mad scientists left behind all those years ago. And of course, this is a secret operation - so if you get stuck in there, you’re on your own.
