Not an American user?

Description

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.

Trivia

Although the back cover of the case claims that Rise had "original score by legendary rock guitarist Brian May" this can be considered a scam, since the only Brian May music you hear in the game is an approximately 5-seconds long guitar solo at the beginning.

Brain May was penned in to produce the entire soundtrack, however completion was delayed and the soundtrack was not completed in time for the games release.
