magazine advertisement - NES (US):
    THE COIN-OP GAME OF THE YEAR IS NOW THE MOST ACTION-PACKED NES(tm) GAME OF ALL TIME!

    Congratulations! You're the next lucky contestant on the game show with the ultimate in prizes... YOUR LIFE! Sorry, no mindless blondes spinning wheels here. Just deadly action, flying shrapnel, and total carnage -- all in front of a live studio audience! Instead of picking vowels, you pick 6 futuristic weapons like triple photon lasers and lethal plasma grenades. And the 2 controller action gives you 360 degree arcade firepower.

    Sure, you can win toasters and microwaves... after you defeat hordes of cyborg mutants, power orbs and the 30-ton Mutoid Man! Any wonder this show's #1 in the ratings?
