Restricted Area

Year:  2004

Genre:  Action/RPG

Links:  Moby Games

Restricted area is a combat-heavy action RPG with a futuristic setting. There are 4 playable characters, each with their own style and own story missions. There are also optional missions, outlined in a separate section at the end of the walkthrough.

Story: Johnson

From the start of the game, explore the initial area. To accept story missions, visit Mr Jones towards the northwest. When you want to go on your first mission, you need to visit Jason to the south. Negotiate with him by offering 15% and he will meet you at 20% - this is the best possible outcome.

Old Shelter - Procurement

After landing, search this outside area to find the entrance to the shelter. Make your way slowly through the first two levels, then on the 3rd level find the crate at the end that contains the microchip. You can now use the mission screen to return to the city for your reward.

Buy and sell any equipment you need to, then talk to Jones for your next mission. Visit Jason and fly to your next destination.

Factory Site - Mutant Cleaning

Head inside the factory, and go down to the 3rd level. Once inside the room with the giant boss mutant, quickly run away from it and attack from a safe distance. It will occasionally summon lesser mutants to attack alongside it, so quickly kill them off and then continue attacking the boss. Once you have killed the boss, the mission is completed.

Back in the city, you can now accept the side missions from Mr Smith in the southeast - see the separate section below on these missions. Talk to Mr Jones in his usual place for the next story mission.

Oxygenetic Prison - Rescue

Jessica has been imprisoned and it is your job to rescue her. Head down to level 3 of the prison, fighting your way through lots of guard robots. In the large room where the door shuts behind you, there are 2 larger boss robots to kill - one uses long-ranged attacks and the other uses short-ranged attacks. Once they are dead, continue on to find Jessica in her cell. She will join your party, and you are given the option to go to the sewers (more enemies, more experience) or the roof. Make your choice, then in either scenario just reach the exit marker to find Jason and fly back to the city.

Back in the city, Mr Jones won't have another mission for you yet, so visit Mr Smith and complete a side mission to fill in time. Speak to Victoria when you return from your side mission - she is just north of where you return. You will then undertake a mission where you cannot die, and where you meet Victoria at the end - shoot her if you want to, but she won't die anyway.

After this, see Mr Jones again. He tells you that there are 3 Oxygenetic Factories that you will need to take care of. He then gives you a mission at the first one.

Oxygenetic Factory 1 - Mutant Cleaning

After landing, head into the factory and work your way down to level 3. Plant your 4 bombs on the 4 marked columns, and the mission is over. Back in the city, speak to Mr Jones to get your next mission, which is at the next factory.

Oxygenetic Factory 2 - Mutant Cleaning

This mission is identical to the previous one, except for the ending. Make sure you clear the bottom level of all enemies before you plant any of the bombs. Once you plant the first, you only have 2 minutes to get out of the factory (or at least off this level) before the place explodes, so plan your route carefully. After you leave, you will be shot out of the sky with Jason on the return trip. You need to defend Jason for 6 minutes from the incoming mutants. Once the time is up, you will head back to the city automatically. See Mr Jones for the third factory mission. Speak to Victoria, who is standing near Jason, then talk to Jason to head off.

Oxygenetic Factory 3 - Mutant Cleaning

Make sure you keep Victoria alive during this mission. Enter the factory and head down to the bottom level, then place a bomb on one of the columns as marked on your map. You will automatically head down into the sewers beneath the factory. Use the map to find your way out of the sewers, and you will drive back to the city afterwards.

Secret Lab - Mutant Cleaning

Head into the secret lab and work your way down to the 3rd level. This room contains another large robot mutant that has a flame-thrower. Carefully dodge around it to attack from behind if you can. Once it is dead, you will automatically leave the area (but Victoria will die).

In the city, go to where you used to meet Mr Jones, but Jessica and Takahashi will be there instead. Talk to them but they will refuse to help you. You will want to have night-vision and lots of medkits before leaving the city this time. Go and find Jason and head off for the final mission.

Osaki's Palace - Mutant Cleaning

Slowly work your way up to the 4th level of the palace. On this level, you will see Mr Jones, then the lights will go out and you will face the first boss, a mutant that attacks with its tail and claws. Once you have defeated it, enter the next room and kill Jones. Continue up 1 more level and you will face Osaki himself. It is easiest to defeat him from far away with ranged attacks. After this last fight, you will automatically restart the game at the next difficulty level.

Story: Jessica

From the start of the game, explore the initial area. To accept story missions, visit Mr Jones towards the northwest. When you want to go on your first mission, you need to visit Jason to the south. Negotiate with him by offering 15% and he will meet you at 20% - this is the best possible outcome.

Back in the city, you can now accept the side missions from Mr Smith in the southeast - see the separate section below on these missions. Talk to Mr Jones in his usual place for the next story mission.

Oxygenetic Bunker - Procurement

Search for the entrance to the bunker and head inside. Head to the second floor and find a computer terminal. Use this to enter cyber-reality, and search all the terminals here until you view a movie and get caught and thrown in prison. Takahashi will arrive and rescue you, and you will end up in a sewer. Make your way to the roof and you will separate from Takahashi and complete the mission.

Back in the city, Mr Jones won't have another mission for you yet, so visit Mr Smith and complete a side mission to fill in time. Speak to Victoria when you return from your side mission - she is just north of where you return. Go and find Takahashi near Shakir, and speak to him to end up in cyber-reality. Quickly find 10 terminals and read their data, then talk to Takahashi again.

After this, see Mr Jones again. He tells you that there are 3 Oxygenetic Factories that you will need to take care of. He then gives you a mission at the first one.

Oxygenetic Factory 1 - Mutant Cleaning

You can then visit Jason to attempt your next mission.

Oxygenetic Laboratory - Termination

Kill everything in your path as you enter the lab and progress to the third level. Here you will confront the Professor, and have to fight both him, and the Cyber-Takahashi. After you are successful, you will need to decide whether to continue playing as the real Takahashi, or take on the persona of the Cyber Takahashi. Either way, you will return to the city.

After this, see Mr Jones again. He tells you that there are 3 Oxygenetic Factories that you will need to take care of. He then gives you a mission at the first one.

Optional Missions

The other characters around the city may occasionally offer you quests. Their dot will turn red on the map if they want to offer you something.

Mr Smith

The other agent in a black suit, Mr Smith, is standing on a street corner in the southeast of the initial game area. After you have completed the first few story missions, he will hand out optional side-quests. These do not advance the story, but are an easy source of money so that you can upgrade weapons, and a good source of experience to raise your levels/skills.

There are hundreds of possible quests, but they all fall into the following few categories:

  • Mutant cleaning
  • Procurement
  • Enticement
  • Extraction
  • Rescue
  • Termination

All missions boil down to the same steps - kill all the monsters on the way to some final confrontation, either talking to someone, rescuing someone, or killing someone.

Jason

In his first quest, Jason asks you to find some chips for his glider from the Old Live Vision Lab. He will then only take 10% of your mission earnings. He may offer you a second quest, in which you must go and talk to Dee, then come back to Jason again - he now only takes a 5% commission.

Dee/Jenny

Dee will tell you at some point that Shakir beats Jenny. Go and see Jenny, who says that she is in debt to Shakir for 10000 credits. Go and see Shakir to pay off this debt, then return to Jenny for your reward. You can also see Dee again now for better deals and you will also be able to better identify items that appear during missions.
