Description

Humanity's most dangerous enemy, the Kybernoids, have invaded and occupied Lugubrios, a planet of paramount strategic value. The Kybernoids have built a shield generator, protecting the planet from any kind of attack. You are Skout and it's your mission to destroy this generator and to free the enslaved population. The game is a typical Quake clone and comes with various indoor and large outdoor levels. Your futuristic weapon arsenal helps you to succeed in your mission against the Kybernoids. One special thing about this game is the Drone. With the help of this weapon, you can surprise and confuse your enemies by flying on to them or simply check certain areas for enemies before entering them. The Drone gets certain upgrades during the game, allowing you to fire at your enemies with this weapon. The game was only released in Germany however an English Demo version is existing.
