The player controls 4 robots, but only one at a time, which can be upgraded by destroying enemies. There are four research bunkers, which each robot is assigned to, and the player must defend against an onslaught of enemy robots by switching between each playable character and repelling the attackers.

As the foes are destroyed, there is a possibility that they will drop a piece of equipment that will be fitted onto the player in order to enhance their abilities (e.g. leg boosts, enhanced eyes). The player must defeat the whole wave in order to progress to the next round.

Programmers: Ben Blakemore & Andy Gill
