"Tinker, Tailor, Gamer, Spy!"
Scripting by Etherington and art by Brizuela, Bumblebee aids Raf in getting a videogame that he really wanted, the UltraLux Special Invasionauts edition in 4D! Trouble is, the game is engineered by Soundwave to Brainwash Raf into overriding the base defences. Raf succumbs to the hypnotic trance that is the game and lets a drone attack force in the base! (see page below for an example)

score: 6.8 out of 10
