Rise of the Robots
Getting tired of bashing street punks, pounding mortal mutants, slashing samurais, and otherwise battling it out on mundane earth? Ready to get your hands on a new twist in Fighting games? JVC Musical Industries is scratching that itch with the robotic finger of Rise of the Robots for the Sega CD. This one- or two-player disc features animated robo-fighter introductions, slick fighting moves without the thumb-mangling combinations of other games, 3-D modeled fighters, and a soundtrack like only CD games can deliver. If run-of-the- mill Fighting games leave you feeling all too human, plug in to Rise of the Robots.
Danger! Danger! Warning! Warning!
No, you're not lost in space. You're a cyborg commando that's been built to stop a robot uprising. The way they act, you'd think they belonged to a union or something. Every 'bot from Cargo to Combat Droids stands in your way, each ready for up to three rounds of armor-to-armor combat, the winner taking two out of three. Your mission is to reach the Supervisor Droid, the majorly formidable opponent who can morph into your worst cyborg nightmares (sounds just like a boss!).
Your cyborg is a humanoid, armored chassis with humanlike combat maneuvers such as flying kicks and head butts. The button combinations used to throw moves have been honed down so that your speed and quick thinking are more important than the ability to mash a button 30 times to make one move. And the opponents are smart. Intelligent enemies don't let you crush them with the same pattern over and over. They learn your moves, and learn to block them! Two-player mode lets you go head to head against most of the enemies in the game. Look for Rise of the Robots spinning its way to you soon.
- TIP: You can slide and sweep with the best of them.
- TIP: In two-player mode, you get to select your opponent.
- TIP: The fighters were created using 3-D modeling for ultimate realism.
- TIP: Thin and spider-legged Droids are faster, but they tend to be vulnerable in the joints.
