Megatron and the Combaticons attack a plant late one night to steal a piece of hardware called a hydrothermacline. Prime and the Protectobots are also there to thwart their plans. But nosy do-gooder human computer programmer Ethan Zachary butts in and suggests that rather than trash the place that they duel in a virtual world on his mega-computer. Megatron insists that there be a twist, that the losers' leader dies in real life. Thus the games begin...
In the computer game the 'bots beat up the 'cons and Prime beats up Megatron. However, the Decepticon leader is a sly old fox and tricks Prime using 'Afterdeath', a 'cheat' code for the game. Prime is, as ever, not easily defeated and still bests Megatron fair and square. Well not quite...in the real world Prime admits that he too cheated, by allowing innocent computer characters to perish when he sent Megatron falling to his doom. Behaving like a complete loon he instructs Ethan Zachary to press the button that will destroy him. Thus he goes up in smoke. With Prime as dead as a dodo, Megatron and his cronies leave victorious. The End...?
