Coming Soon Magazine (Issue 1 Nov/Dec 1994):

    A REVOLUTION IN COMPUTER GAMES.

    Rise of the Robots is the first of a brand new generation of games combining state-of-the-art programming, maximum gameplay and cutting edge design and graphics. The results are simply astounding ! Rise of the Robots takes you to the dark heart of a future super-tech society. The servants of the society are the robots. But at the giant Electrocorp, the planet's major robot manufacturer, things are starting to go badly wrong. The Supervisor -- a polymetamorphic droid and the ultimate in robot technology -- has been infected by an Ego-Virus and transformed into a vicious psychotic. The only way to stop her, as she proceeds to take over the factory and reprogram its robot workers, is to send in a specially-constructed Cyborg unit... a metallic combat-alloy body with a human brain. As the Cyborg, your deadly mission is to terminate the Supervisor. The fight of your life is about to begin...

    Nothing in recent years has generated as much excitement and eager anticipation as Rise of the Robots.
