When I first played Bypass, I thought you had to be lucky to even complete it, but after playing for a while, I finally developed an approach that usually results in a good time. The basis of the approach is to capture all three planets on the bottom and one singleton on the side. This will cause the opponents to be unbalanced, but the approach requires more than that.
The best way to beat Bypass in a good time is the same as it is for most of the Auralux games, you need to get your opponents to attack each other. To do this in Bypass, you can take advantage of the wall of force that is against you. Even though your units can’t pass through the wall, the effect of your attack can.
- From 0:00 to 0:49, this is just the initial captures and promotion of your triple planet.
- From 0:50 to 0:57, this is the initial attack through the force. The attack is against the orange top singleton. It doesn’t always happen, but often enough orange will send units from its triple and double planets to reinforce the singleton. That is when you remove the attack. Orange discovers that it has too many units for the singleton and uses them to attack green.
- From 0:58 to 1:12, you keep attacking and removing the attack on the orange singleton to keep all of the orange units going to the top of the board and away from you.
- From 1:13 to 1:23, start peeling units off for an eventual attack on orange. Even while you are assembling the units for the eventual attack, take advantage of attacking the orange singleton to keep orange sending units to the top.
- From 1:24 to 1:42, destroy the orange triple and double planets and then capture those planets.
- From 1:43 to 2:04, you now have your units in position to pass through the vertical force wall and use them to attack green.
From here on out you just need to clean up the best way possible.
