You are a cyborg handyman in the far away future sent to a huge megacorporation where an evil AI has taken control of the companies robots. You are charged with facing these robots in combat and eliminating them one by one to reach the core and deactivate the AI.

Gameplay wise this is a standard beat-em-up with gorgeous graphics. It has some annoying limitations like not being able to jump over your enemy and only one fire button.

It mainly sold well because of the incredible hype that surrounded it. (If you look closely at the front cover you'll see the words "actual in-game screenshot" which is just a plain lie). Just have a look at the advertising blurb on the back of the box. More and more lies..
