Differences from Original Level

Expanded Mission 23: Back to Basics|original level with many more hidden caverns and crystals to find. Changed the Terrain to Icy with Ice Monsters, including sleeping Ice Monsters. Added a few recharge seams to counteract the horde of Slimy Slugs.

"OK, Rock raider, this mission is very dangerous, so listen carefully! We have discovered an area rich in Energy Crystals and Ore. We need you to establish the Rock Raider HQ and begin mining - we need to collect 200 Energy Crystals.

Overview

Collect 350 Energy Crystals

Objective

"This is it, Rock Raider. This is what it's all been building up to! We know there is an abundance of Energy Crystals deep in the caverns around our Rock Raider HQ. The scanners show that there are Rock Monsters all over the place. This mission will be your toughest yet, but it must succeed if we are to escape from the planet and return home. Establish the Rock Raider HQ as a formidable outpost and transport the most powerful mining machinery you can. You'll need all of it if you are to collect the 350 Energy Crystals that we still need. Take care down there, Rock Raider!"

Differences from Original Level

Needless to say, many more hidden caverns than the Mission 25: Rocky Horror|original level and as many crystals as the game can handle. Tons of Monsters of all type and plenty of slimy slugs.
