Vegas Prime Retrograde uses a first person camera and the controls will probably be familiar to fans of the FPS genre. If you play with a controller or gamepad, the controls are reminiscent of most mainstream FPS. Run, jump, strafe, it’s all there.
Clara’s primary action is to hack various electronic devices that are made available to her. Sometimes she uses her deck to tunnel into devices to acquire bits of the data bundle, and sometimes she uses it to attack data uplinks used by corporate hackers.
Hackable targets can be almost any electronic device, ranging from parking meters to unsuspecting com-units to security cameras, and are scanned by her NAV unit or added as waypoints automatically.
While she is hacking devices, she is able to use whatever illicit software she has picked up to help her. These can range from new improved dictionary lists, DDOS software, viruses, or the rare Quantum Brute Force application. These can speed up her attacks, slow down the opponent, cause disconnects, or other effects.
Target systems incorporate the signatures of these tools quickly, so each tool is single use. USE THEM WISELY!
