Combat 3000 was a franchised laser tag game of the late 2000s. It had outlets in Taunton, Cleethorpes (PROSE: Warriors of Kudlak), Brighton, Leeds, Inverness, Manchester and all over Britain. Its headquarters were in Ealing.
The ostensible object of the game was to fire one's "laser" gun at other players and to register more hits than any other player within a set amount of time.
In about 2007 or 2008 the company was taken over by "Mr Kudlak" and Mark Grantham, and it became, according to the Ealing venue's long-term cashier, "mental". Clyde Langer described it as the Premier League for laser tag.
In reality, Kudlak was using the venue as a testing ground to select human youths with exceptional reflexes. He needed them as replacement soldiers in a war he believed his people were still fighting. His association with Combat 3000 ended when he discovered that his war had long ended.
Nevertheless, a number of humans were teleported to his space ship after having been selected as amongst the best players of the game. These included Luke Smith, Clyde Langer, Lance Metcalf, Jen, Jack, Ella, a girl from Inverness (TV: Warriors of Kudlak) Simon, Curtis and Louise Barsthorpe. (PROSE: Warriors of Kudlak)
