Description official description

A creative turn-based strategy game. Form a team of robots serving different roles and program them to eliminate the enemy from the arena.

You have 5 different types of robots at your disposal, each with it's own weaponry and capabilities. The competition is run in a number of intervals giving you time to reprogram your robots and set them loose to destroy your opponent.

This game includes multiplayer options for both multi-computer setups and hot seat play. There is no luck and reflexes are not a factor. Only the one with the best strategy will prevail.

One of the first good network games, where skill and intuition triumphed.

The Good
Its robot scripting language was very easy to use, and by limiting the time for considering moves, you could raise the skill level to any level you wanted. This game reminded me of many board games, where orders were written in advance, then revealed, and the actions worked out according to sequence. If you could imagine the options open to your opponent, you could arrange ambushes - all very satisfying when they worked! I actually got this game to run multiplayer on a Windows 3.0 network at the company where I worked, and it was a great lunchtime game because a battle took only 20 minutes or so.

The Bad
What I didn't like is the fact that this title never got the respect and the play I think it deserved. It was extremely different from the majority of games in that day - therein lay its charm, and therein lay the reason for it being passed over. I STILL have my copy on the shelf at my computer, although my household has seen six new computers since I got it!

The Bottom Line
A charming, competitive, turn-based game of beating other teams of robots with your own team. It was the WORMS ARMAGEDDON of its day.
