How To Turn The Power On

To turn the power on and gain access to all the map, there are three reactors that need to be activated and costs 500 points to begin, which shouldn't be difficult to secure.

The first reactor is in the Mission Control room so isn't difficult to find.

Pay the 500 points and then protect the two collection units from any zombies that might rear their ugly heads.
