Xybots

Moby ID: 14009

A YEAR AGO THE EXPERTS SAID IT COULDN'T BE DONE.

IT WAS TOO BIG, TOO COMPLICATED. BUT OUR PROGRAMMING TEAM JUST SMILED AT EACH OTHER.
AND NOW HERE IT IS.

It's here and it's sensational - Domark's latest blockbusting coin-op conversion from tengen.

Join Major Rock Hardy and Captain Ace Gunn in their battle for supremacy against an army of invading Xybots!

With a split-screen for one or two players and a unique viewing area, you'll find Xybots a challenging strategic blast 'em up.

It's non-stop action all the way and working together in two-player mode is the ultimate fun. Each player controls one character and the split-screen gives each his own playing area.

A map shows the section you're battling through and the positions of the patrolling Xybots. And to keep one step ahead, pick up energy pods, super weapons, keys and coins.

Xybots made a challenging arcade game...as a computer game it can't be matched. So grab hold of the controls and help the intrepid duo, Rock and Ace, rid the labyrinth of these metallic monsters.

The fate of humanity is in your hands! You must explore the corners and passageways of Earth's last outpost in space and defeat the invading Xybots. If you fail, human life as we know it will end. Comlynx with a friend, or take on the dreaded Xybot warriors all alone.

Le destin de l'humanit├ę est entre vos mains! Votre mission consiste ├á explorer les coins et recoins du dernier poste spatial avanc├ę que la Terre poss├Ęde encore. Vous devrez vaincre les envahisseurs Xybots. Si vous ├ęchouez, c'esta la fin de la vie humaine telle que nous la connaissons. Faites-vous aider par un amit (et d'un c├óble Comlynx!) ou chargez-vous tout seul des ├ępouvantables guerriers Xybot.
