Note: Since this game is old, you MUST follow the following instructions:

Right click the game icon.
Select Properties.
Check: Run this program in compatibility mode for:
From the resulting drop down menu, select Win 98/Windows ME.
Then check apply, and OK.

This is an OLD game of mine. It's a simple "kill or be killed" scenario: Three humans versus an unlimited supply of robots. The robots are created by an automated testing facility. The facility's only purpose is to create a better robot. The humans only purpose is to serve as test subjects.

Here's the gimmick in the game: The enemy evolves. If you crush the current prototype in battle, the next robot will probably be very different. If you are marginally successful, the next robot will change slightly. If it crushes you, the robot design stays the same, and the player loses one life.

This isn't an awesome game. It was created as a way for me to experiment with enemy AI. On that level, I think it's quite good. The robot can lead shots, dodge the enemy, and a whole lot more, depending on that particular robot's configuration. Download this if action AI interests you.

All original graphics. Sound FX from MMF CD (some modified and some original).
