In Trace Route the player controls a dot on the screen and must race through an obstacle course and finish before the enemy dots do.

In System Override the player has to destroy enemy defenses, and penetrate the core of the system before time runs out. Hardware Crack is a player has to rotate mirrors to direct a light beam to the designated location.

After repairing the elevator they are called to repair a computer mainframe, both which appear to be intentionally sabotaged. While travelling between jobs, they hear and see people get attacked by Necromorphs. The couple decides the flee and fights though the space station hacking systems and helping other people.
