DescriptionYou have two Armorines to play as, each with their own selection of weapons. In a not distant future time, you strenuously fight against bugs of all sizes, as you attempt to impede the enemies from eliminating human civilization as we know it, and have to succeed within 120 hours.
This game uses the Turok 2 engine, and has similar themes and elements to the movie Starship Troopers.

Acclaim hosted a press conference prior to the UK release of the game. They decked out the meeting room in camouflage netting, dressed up as marines, and served up a dish of fried bug hors d'oeuvres for those brave enough to try. It's not often you see the game press turn down a free lunch!
Cancelled sequelA sequel to Armorines was announced before the original hit retail stores, but was canceled when the first game performed below expectations at retail.
German versionIn the German Nintendo 64 version all blood effects, the possibility to shoot corpses or innocents and all human models in the multiplayer mode were removed.
