Game Introduction

The mad scientist has created an army of robots to destroy the city, capture all the citizens, and use their brains for more robots to take over the world. You control one of two robots who punch apart the army throughout a jungle stage and various buildings in the destroyed city. Robots and robot dogs sometimes leave arms or metal bars that can be used as weapons. The game is like a fast-paced robot Golden Axe.

Game Play

A power meter is filled by collecting power-ups. A full power meter will release a devastating attack to all on-screen. The fist icon transforms you into a power buggy (like a Tron Lightcycle) for a limited time to crash into and destroy everything.
