The hero of the piece, CID, is thrust from the dull drudgery of his every day life into an exciting mission to rescue Mia. CID is a Crash Impact Dummy, one of millions created by the Professor B.M. Werken's company to ensure that every product available on the market is safe for humankind. He diligently crashes, smashes, checks, re-checks and re-re-checks everything from lemonade to escalators. Like most of us at one point or another, CID thinks that there must more to life than just work. He's happy enough to put up with it, but he can't help thinking that there's something... else.
CID is a young, funky Crash Impact Dummy. He knows he's cool, he knows he's street, he knows he's widdit. He's not really sure where he's heading in life. He kinda knows he's destined for bigger things, but he's stuck in this damn job! He's got a quick sense of humour, and uses his wit as a defence. Interact as only a crash impact dummy can. Climb walls, swing on ropes, burn obstacles, destroy exploding barrels, use lifters, bounce on springs and with a neat head butt destroy walls all in stunningly realised environments. Game environment interaction is the most important part of the gameplay. CID's world is swarming with a host of fearfully fun enemies like the Dumper, Cursed Dummy and the bizarre Failed Experiment. Apart from fighting enemies, the player will enjoy solving puzzles, avoiding traps and using acrobatic skills to get out of dangerous situations!
