Dirk Dashing 2: E.V.I.L Eye version 0.9 adds 7 new levels for Part 5 of the story! At this point, 38 of the planned 40 levels are built, and the main storyline is now complete. This means you can play through the entire game from beginning to end!
Part 5 is titled "Lair of the Virus Masters", and it takes place at the secret Conquertech factory that Dirk's been trying to find since the end of Part 1. Conquertech has already started mass producing computers infected with the E.V.I.L Eye virus, and they're preparing to ship the first batch. It's up to Dirk to sneak inside, shut down production, and destroy the computer virus.
Fans of spy movies know that the climax usually includes lots of action and explosions. So version 0.9 introduces a new gadget for Dirk: an explosive dynamite charge! You can use it to blow up all kinds of stuff, like the computers in the screenshot above or the crates in the screenshot below. And the explosions are fun to watch - they shake the camera and spew shrapnel all over the place. It's cool to run back through the level when you're done, and see all the debris lying everywhere.
These new levels are designed to be challenging, with some new puzzles and some intense action. There are more enemies than ever before, and in some places they seem to come at you simultaneously from multiple directions. The final level even includes 2 different bosses that you must beat. I think even veteran gamers will find these levels challenging on the hard skill level. You'll need all your skills, wits, and gadgets to get through these missions!
There is no public demo for version 0.9, as this only adds new content for pre-order customers. The latest demo is at v0.8.1. However, v0.9.1 will be available in about 2 weeks, and will feature significant changes to the demo levels. I will be revamping the demo levels to introduce the night vision goggles early in the game, so that all of the game's stealth elements are available in the trial version. I will also be making some additional changes for game balance, etc.
Dirk Dashing 2: E.V.I.L Eye is scheduled to be released on June 30.
