You're the newest agent at S.M.A.R.T, an organization dedicated to tracking down and preventing cybercrime across the net. Just as you're getting started, you discover that a mysterious hacker is trying to take down the entire web with something called Nightfall! And before you know it, all other S.M.A.R.T agents have been disconnected, and it's up to you to stop the hacker.

Regain control of the web by fighting databattles against the corrupted security software the Nightfall hacker has installed in nodes around the web. To fight a databattle, you'll upload special programs to engage the node's security programs in strategic turn-based combat.  Beat the security in one node, and you'll gain access to even more nodes it's connected to. As you advance through the net, you'll get access to faster and stronger programs with special abilities. 

The Nightfall Incident is a remake of a 2002 shockwave game of a similar name. It is in no way affiliated with The Lego Group and is an unofficial fan product.

Hi! Bought and am enjoying the game greatly, but there's a bug: Bonus credits picked up during a level aren't added to your balance afterwards.

Edit: Actually it's pretty bad. I was kind of reliant on repeating levels to farm credits so I could try out all the programs and now I don't know what to do with myself

Bought the game a few days ago and am still having a blast with it.

Thank you for reviving a childhood favorite!

Any chance you'd consider doing the same with the Junkbot games in the future?

Thanks for the support! I'm glad you enjoyed it.

I'm unfortunately not familiar with the Junkbot games, but hopefully this encourages someone to remake them!

I downloaded the game without any issues, but I'm running into a problem that I'm not having in the demo, where I can't target enemy programs with my attacks. Does anyone know a way to fix this?

Hey! Sorry to hear that. What OS and browser are you using? I've tested on Windows/Edge, Windows/Chrome, Mac/Safari, and Mac/Chrome, as well as iOS.

I'm running Windows 10, and I use google chrome but the game automatically opens in Microsoft Edge (internet explorer). I'm going to try to see if I can get it to open in Chrome and see if that helps.

EDIT: Opening the game in Chrome worked. I don't know why I didn't try that in the first place. But thank you for the quick response!

I'm glad it works! I occasionally dual boot Windows for gaming and definitely recall testing this on Edge at some point, but I might've broken something after that. I'll give it another try soon, but good to know that Chrome works!

On second thought, I just remembered that I tested on the new version of Edge that's Chromium based, so the same internals as Chrome. I'll get to testing on the old Edge the next time I want to play some Halo...

This is awesome. I notice you changed something that I now recognize was probably a bug. In the original, one could grab a credit and then Undo the action, keeping the credits but not wasting the movement squares. Here, the Undo also undoes the credit collection.

Hi! Thanks for the kind words. It's indeed a bug that you could Undo and keep the credits you collected, so this remake prevents that behavior. I also fixed a bug where you could use Bit-Man to "zero" your own programs, preventing them from being attacked.

I was not aware of the bug to use Bit-Man to zero a program. Thanks again for this blast from the past. 

Download isn't working for my Samsung Galaxy S9+. In my files, I can find the index.html, but it does not work through Chrome, HTML Viewer, or Samsung Internet. I can still use the above "Run Game" button in the browser to access the demo, but would like to see something more for my purchase. Thanks

Hi! I think we've been in touch via email, but it may be necessary to extract the .zip (instead of opening index.html inside the .zip). In the meantime, I've marked the download as for Windows / Linux / Mac (no Android) for the time being. Let's be in touch via email to figure this out!

Got it going on my Chromebook and it is great so far. Thank you for your help and for bringing this game back from the dead! Looking forward to your proposed sequel!

You've taken a different approach from me. While it's good to reinvent things sometimes, I like that this version has the same music, UI and feel as the original game, and that I can play it on a modern browser. Out of interest, have you had, or do you expect, any legal trouble from Lego?

Hey! I've just seen your work on your profile, and it's also interesting to see your take on the UI/feel. The trademark for the original game was cancelled in 2010 and I make sure not to even mention it (or Lego), and I've been in touch with the original developers of the game, so I don't anticipate any legal troubles! Best wishes with your version.
