DescriptionYear 2019, Manhattan. After a nuclear war.
Out of the ashes comes a hero, Jonathan Rogers, better known as "Jungle Rogers", the owner of the asphalt jungle. The only chance of survival is to reach the airdrop platform XV-238, located in the control base of the schizophrenic assassin professor McJerin, and to escape to outer colonies.
There is no easy way to do this. The game is a side-scrolling shoot 'em up, with thugs coming at you constantly, and a few moves to use on them. You must cross the dangerous streets of Manhattan, which have become over-run by feral thieves. Later you await the guardians of the scientific complex of McJerin.

Dark Amiga versionThe Amiga version looks dark when compared to the Atari ST version because of a rushed conversion job. The authors used the ST palette values directly, which results in reduced brightness. As of 2012, a custom WHDL patch exists that corrects that bug and also lets the game to be installed on an Amiga harddrive. (Source)
InspirationThe game setting seems inspired by 1970-80s post-apocalyptic films such as "The Ultimate Warrior" (Robert Clouse, 1975) or "1990: I guerrieri del Bronx" (Enzo G. Castellari, 1982).
