      THE THRILL OF THE ARCADE GAME


      It's the year 2084, and robots are turning against their masters. Saved by a genetic accident, only you can resist their mutant re-programming and defend humanity. Grunts close in. The Brains launch missiles. Tanks, Sheroids, and Electrodes spell death. And then, there's the Hulk--immune to your laser. Your mission is to rescue, evade, and destroy. Good luck.
