Description

In a humorous take on the eighties' sci-fi judgment day films, you play as either one of two cyborgs, Arnold and Sigourney, or team up on a mission to save the world.

The year is 2029 and an alien invasion, led by Supreme Commander Vile Malmort, threatens the earth. He has destroyed the city of New York and built a device known as an "Astrotube", which connects the ruins of the city with his alien space station. If this invasion does not stop, humanity will surely be doomed! A duo of cyborg soldiers have been assigned to combat the invading forces, known as "S.C.A.T." The fate of mankind rests on the success of their five-stage mission.

The heroes are equipped with a jet pack and two orbiting cannons. These can be set to fire in one direction or in a fixed pattern. You can fly in all directions and use power-ups to gain new types of weapons or to restore health. Only six lives (three in the Japanese version) per mission are provided, but there is an unlimited amount of continues.
