Attack waves:
- Starting attack wave is 1.
- After every 2000 points reached, the attack wave increases.
- The 6th is the highest attack wave, any wave above is the same as the 6th.
- In each attack wave, the warriors and infestation spreads faster, queen(s) move quicker.
- At the start of attack wave 2, the queen is placed in room 248. (Because of the 2000 points bonus, it's not possible to get to the queen's room during attack wave 1.)
- At the start of attack wave 4 and 5, up to 8 additional queens are added randomly to the complex.
- At the start of attack wave 6 and above, up to 16 additional queens are added randomly to the complex.

Mission:

Step 2:: After step 1 has taken place and all surviving players reach room 1, the game ends with the following message:
"COMPANY SUGGESTS YOU / RETURN AT A LATER / DATE TO GAIN A HIGHER / CREDIT RATING"

The game contains a message which is never shown:
"MESSAGE FROM COMPANY / MISSION ACCOMPLISHED / BY (names of surviving players shown) / TOTAL CREDIT POINTS / ATTAINED (score shown)"

Beware changing XX and WW, because the higher score, the more iterations must be calculated, the more wave advancing must be displayed, resulting in a very slow play.
