Overview

Heroes Ratchet and Clank

Ratchet and Clank: Tools of Destruction is the sixth game in Insomniac Games' long running Ratchet and Clank series. This game also marks the franchise's debut on the PlayStation 3 hardware. The game is a third-person platformer with shooting and puzzle mechanics. Players control Ratchet as travels the universe to bring down evil Emperor Tachyon and discover the secrets about his origins.

Plot

The opening scene of Tools of Destruction feature Ratchet and Clank repairing a small hovercraft, when the pair are interrupted by Captain Qwark's call for help. On their way to the

Tachyon's Army

Planetary Defence Center they find a large army in the process of destroying the city of Metropolis. Cornered by the opposing forces, Ratchet and Clank meet Emperor Tachyon, the leader of the Cragmites. Tachyon reveals his hatred for the Lombaxes, and offers to halt the destruction of Metropolis in exchange for Ratchet's life. They refuse the offer, and manage to escape from the city, only to crash land in the Polaris galaxy.

Clank then experiences a dream where he is told by strange hovering aliens called the Zoni, that claim to have knowledge of his past. The dream is cut short with Ratchet waking Clank up, where the pair decide to search for more information about Tachyon. They run into a mysterious alien, known only as the Smuggler, who brings them to Startus City before realizing Ratchet is a Lombax, at which point he promptly dropped them out of the ship. While here, the Zoni, who only Clank can see, provide him with a set of robo-wings, and help reveal the origin of the Lombax species.

They then receive a message from Qwark, inviting them to attend the Imperial Fight Festival. It is then revealed that Qwark agreed to work for Tachyon in order to save his own life. Qwark manages to get Ratchet in undetected using the alias ‘Mustachio Furioso.' After successfully completing the challenge, Qwark presented Ratchet with an infobot containing Tachyon’s plans to find the Lombax secret, as well as a copy of ‘Body by Qwark.'

From the infobot, they found out that details of the Lombax secret were in the Apogee Space Station. While there, they encountered Talwyn Apogee and her two robots Cronk and Zephyr, who were about to kill the pair, when they realize Ratchet was a Lombax. Talwyn then told them of how space pirates had stolen a Lombax related artifact from her father, and gave them the location of where she thought they had taken it.

The Dimensionator

They travelled to the pirate station where they managed to obtain the artifact undetected. While Ratchet was holding it, a map appeared which contained coordinates to Rykan V, to which the group travelled. After defeating a significant number of Tachyon’s Cragmite soldiers, they found out about a device called the ‘Dimensionator’ - a helmet that allowed the owner to open a portal, to access different dimensions. Later Qwark gave them the location of Zordoom Prison, where he believed the Dimensionator was being held.

At the prison, Ratchet learned that Tachyon had been found by Lombaxes while he was still an egg, and was adopted by a family on Fastoon; however, after finding out that the Lombaxes had a part to play in the death of his species, he set about trying to destroy all of them. After this, Ratchet has an argument with Clank, who is insistent that the Zoni exist. They also manage to free Talwyn who was imprisoned there at the time.

They manage to track down the location of the Dimensionator, but are faced by Captain Slag and Rusty Pete, who also want the device. After defeating Slag, Ratchet is declared the new leader of the space pirates by Rusty Pete. Before Ratchet could get the Dimensionator, Captain Qwark stole it, saying he would make himself a hero again by destroying it himself. They later manage to track down Qwark’s location, but by now Tachyon has taken the Dimensionator. In the ensuing scramble, Ratchet was knocked unconscious and Tachyon managed to escape.

The group travel to Meredian City, where they knew Tachyon was. Tachyon then revealed that to escape the attack, the Lombaxes had escaped through a portal using the Dimensionator. Only two remained behind - Ratchet and his father, who sent his son to Veldin, to save him from Tachyon’s rampage. He then offered Ratchet the chance to go through the portal to his own kind, an offer which he rejected - realising the danger that could be caused if the Dimensionator was not destroyed.

Clank being captured by the Zoni

The resulting battle causes Ratchet and Tachyon to be sucked into a portal, where Tachyon is eventually defeated. Ratchet and Clank then repair the now-damaged machine using the 3 and 3 quarter Centicubit Hexagonal Washer, that the Plumber had previously given them. Together, they manage to escape the portal before it closed up.

The game ends at the Apogee Space Center, where Rusty Pete is seen trying to help Captain Qwark perfect his pirate ‘yarrr.' Ratchet also speculates about how much Tachyon could have told him about his past, while the others assure him he did the right thing. The Zoni then re-appear and inexplicably capture Clank before anyone can stop them and disappear.

Planets

Cerullean Sector

Planet Cobalia - Cobalia also known as the "Gel Capital of the Polaris galaxy," is a swamp planet best known for being the Polaris Galaxy's richest source of Gelatonium, the most commonly used spacecraft fuel in the galaxy. GrummelNet's famous Confuzzler Gas was dervired from the seeds of the Cobalian Worm Plant. Basilisk Leviathans are commonly found in caves and jungles on Cobalia.

When Emperor Percival Tachyon took over Cobalia, he gained control over the largest source of Gelatonium in the galaxy, making the rest of the galaxy dependent on Tachyon's rationing of Gelatonium fuel for all interstellar travel.

Enemies

  • Cerulllean swarmer - Small but vicious creatures that are common throughout the Cerrulean sector. They use their sharp teeth to attack anyone who comes near them. They are usually sleeping during the day so you can often surprise attack them.
  • Cerullean Centipede - A very large multi-legged insectoid that resembles a centipede. They spit acid at their attackers and have very hard outer shells.
  • Basilisk Leviathan - The top of the food chain on Cobalia these gigantic flying beasts , they will either try to rush you or spit powerful electrical balls at you
  • Tumfoids - Located only where Gelatonium was abundant, Tumfoids get crazed at the mere sight of the substance. While they are not aggressive toward Ratchet or other creatures,they make the gelanator very hard to use because they immideatly started eating the gel.

Planet Kortog - Home to Stratus City which is suspended high above the planet. It is a part of Tachyon's empire and used to be the Educational District of the Polaris Galaxy before Tachyon invaded. You will get a new gadget called Robo-Wings on this planet. The city is full of robo-wing launchers that the player could fly anywhere in the city and explore.Its famed hall of knoledge is said to hold the secrets of the Great War and the history of both the Lombaxes and Cragmites. However, the hall of knoledge has been strictly off limits after Tachyon conquered the city.

This was where Ratchet and Clank discover a Lombax planet called Fastoon. The otherwise reddish color was probably let off by the number of red coloured architechture throughout the planet, along with amount of red-coloured gases seen throughout the cities.

Enemies

  • Drophyd Gunship - They are flying saucers that fire at you when they see, they aren't very tough.
  • Drophyd Trooper - These enemies come equipped with an arm cannon that can fire from long range. While they didn't exactly graduate at the top of the sharpshooter class, when multiple foes are grouped together, they can become a moderate threat.
  • Tesladrones - They are robotic guards that charge toward their targets in an attempt to shock them with their electrified arms.They are often more irritating than deadly.
  • Drophyd Cyclocannon - An enemy that was in a form of a ball that shot bolts of energy (not bolts) at you. While tough, destroying them gained the player a massive amount of Raritanium each time.

Planet Fastoon - Planet Fastoon was once the homeworld of the Lombax race and is desert planet. The planet was ravaged by Tachyon's Drophyd troopers and his Enforcers who mercilessly decimated the Planet years ago when Ratchet was just a child. The planet is now solely occupied by Nanophyte scavengers. The scavengers look for the any pieces of lombax technology that hasnt been destroyed.

Ratchet comes here in an esacape pod so he has to find a new ship to get off the planet. It is here where they find the Lombax engineered fighter, Aphelion who tells them a bit more about the fate of the Lombaxes

Enemies

  • Bomber Nanophyte - Nanophytes are small creatures that live on fastoon and scavenge for technology. Bombers throw grenades but they do so rather carelessly often killing their friends.

Planet Mukow - Mukow is a stormy aquatic planet in the Cerullean Sector. It was home to Emperor Percival Tachyon's Imperial Fight Festival, an exclusive battle resort for Tachyon's most elite Drophyd troopers. Tachyon used the Fight Festival as a means to both entertain his troops, to capture his enemies or lure them into fighting to their deaths. At such an occasion, Tachyon put the Holo Pirate Disguise as a prize in the Festival in hopes of luring Captain Slag there to his doom.

Surrounding the gladiator arena of the Fight Festival was a large carnival park. The carnival park featured things such as a large and deathly ferris wheel and Emperor Tachyon's Trail of Turning Terror. The area near the entrance to the arena was heavily guarded by non-vacationing Drophyd troops and Enforcers.

This was also the place where the Zoni give Clank the Geo-Laser Gadget. This area is also a Basilisk breeding ground and has a good source of raritanium and some small gel sources. The asteroids in the ring are all named after the Greek alphabet. The Smuggler is here and he will trade you bolts for killing basilisks.

They find a mysterious Lombax artifact that only Ratchet can activate. However, this turned out to not be Lombax secret, instead it is a map to another planet. which only turned out to be coordinates to another planet.

The lava refineries of Rykan V are the source of the metals used in most advanced weapons and armor in the galaxy. After retrieving the artifact from the planet Ardolis, it showed the Rykan V globe hologram where Ratchet, Clank, and their new allies Talwyn, Cronk and Zephyr could find the Lombax Secret. .

When the heroes found the door for any Lombax return, they found a movie tape that told that the Lombax Secret was a gadget called the Dimensionator.

Planet Sargasso - Planet Sargasso is a dangerous and mostly uninhabitable primordial swampland. The planet was infested with large, deadly creatures who would quickly make a snack out of any unwary Lombax explorer. The only advanced race known to travel to the planet were the fiercely territorial Kerchu. Being advanced architects, they had built Gelatonium Derricks, refineries, and gel plants to take advantage of the large amounts accessable, plus the fact that the planet was not yet under Imperial control.

The Lombax race once had a Testing Facility for all their latest weapons and gadgets, the most notable being the Dimensionator.

Enemies

Kreeli Comet - The Kreeli Comet is a comet and the location to the IRIS Supercomputer but was taken over by Captain Slag and his Robot Pirates. It is an icy comet, with caves and caverns.

The IRIS Supercomputer is the most ancient and powerful computer in the galaxy. Who created it and why has been long forgotten, but IRIS continues to be used as a form of intergalactic encyclopaedia and oracle.

The planet itself is very dark with murky waters and dark brown rocks. There wasn't alot of vegetation and it seemed uninhabited, besides the prisoners and imperials. The majority of the area was water with tall rocks coming out, where the Zordoom prison was built on that was large enough to be seen from orbit.

Planet Jasindu - Planet Jasindu in Praxus Sector was a jungle planet that was the home of the Kerchu species, with Kerchu City on the planet being the capital of the Kerchu domain. GrummelNet's Intergalactic travel guide considered Jasindu the worst vacation spot in the Polaris galaxy due to the Kerchu's habit of killing any outsiders who wandered into their building sites. The planet was rich with Gelatonium, and the Kerchu have several underground Gelatonium plants near Kerchu City.

Planet Reepor - Reepor was the Cragmite home world that had been dormant for years thanks to the Lombaxes. It was home to the Cragmite Ruins. They encountered Emperor Percival Tachyon who had the Dimensionator and used it to bring back the Cragmites. Ratchet and Clank got seperated and had to regroup Talwyn, Cronk, and Zephyr.

The planet itself was very dark and creepy looking. The "water" was green in color, and most of the plants and soil was black (making it look very dark and burnt from orbit).

Enemies

  • Cragpole - the smallest form of Cragmites that attack by spitting acid out of their mouth.
  • Cragmite Warrior - a fully grown form of the Cragmite species, and is known as the deadliest creature to exist within an eight galaxy radius. The Cragmite Warriors once terrorized the entire galaxy, extinguished hundreds of species and obliterating entire planets in their headlong rush to conquer the galaxy. They can also teleport

With the ability to de-molecularize into thin air and then appear a short distance away, they could be very difficult to eliminate.

Planet Igilak - Igliak is a planet in the Praxus Sector of Polaris, orbiting a radioactive sun and was the home of Meridian City, the capital of Free Polaris. Meridian City is probably the largest city of the galaxy as well, well comparable with Metropolis of the Solana galaxy and Megapolis of the Bogon galaxy.

During the Great War of Polaris, the warbot Zephyr was stationed in the Zenith Outpost in Meridian City. Later, during the perilous Phylax intrusion, he was joined by another warbot named Cronk, who later became his lifetime partner. The two were later sent on a mission to secure a Gelatonium Refinery on the planet to be able to transport fuel to the Meridian Armory. The refinery was infested by undead zombie dung dragons created by Igliak's radioactive sun.

Devices

Ratchet and Clank Future: Tools of Destruction also featured a new type of item, Devices. Devices are ideas that the Insomniac team had but couldnt implement because they were too powerful. So they made them a new type of thing that have alot less ammo than regular weapons, cost alot more and are for use in difficult situations. These are things that can turn enemies into penguins, command them to dance etc.

Groovitron - A Disco ball that when you throw it, rises into the air and starts spinning. Like a regular disco ball it emits beams of light but the light from the Groovitron hypnotises enemies to dance. Insomniac games has said that this weapon has been their dream for the last three games but was scrapped each time because of the amount of animation it would require to implement a weapon that makes everyone dance. But in the transition to the ps3, they finally agreed to make the weapon a reality.

If you have beat the game you can upgrade the groovitron to a Golden Groovitron which has unlimited ammo. However, this costs 2,000,000 raritanium( Which is alot).

The Visi-Copter - A small helicopter that the player can control with the SIXAXIS. It can shoot rockets or just hit enemies with its blades. Its useful for scouting out areas and also for taking out some enemies before you enter the fight yourself.

The transmorpher - A grenade that looks like a snowball. It turns enemies in a small radius into penguins making them harmless and cute. Its useful when you get into a difficult situation and just need to get the enemies off your back. NOTE: The Transmorpher does not actually damage the enemies and they return to their original form once the effect wears off.

Mr. Zurkon - A tough talking, ass kicking robot that will kill everyone close to its master. He speaks with a robotic-german accent and says alot of humorous things.

"Mr Zurkon destoy little fishy man."

"Say hello to Mr. Zurkon's little friend!"

You can unlock a different skin for Mr.Zurkon of a small boy on a flying saucer. This is a tribute to a little boy who got paralyzed in a car accident.
