Introducing the first-ever strategic shooter where you plan your path before grabbing your gun! Gameplay is split in two phases: planning and execution. When planning, you map your route on a 2D map while using battery power as you plot your path. In the action phase, you race down winding corridors and gun down rogue robots that impede your path while protecting your charge from harm. The completion of each level is dependent on the cooperation of a robot duo as one provides the power while the other provides the protection.
- Innovative combination of cerebral, strategic planning with intense, tactical shooting
- A subversion of the typical escort mission
- A pistol for precise shooting or a shotgun for easy clearing
- Use your bullet-time ability for extra accuracy
- 3 maps and levels of progressing difficulty plus a tutorial level
- New obstacles and enemies with each level
- Scorekeeping and online leaderboards
- Download and play for absolutely FREE!
A virus has spread throughout an automated robot assembly factory, causing the entire production of robots to go rogue. Two service robots BURT (Battery Utility Robot Transporter) and IRN-E (Industrial Reparative Net-Engineer) are the only ones unaffected by the virus. BURT is a moving battery robot who transports and supplies energy while IRN-E is a highly-functional maintenance robot. These two must work together by making use of their functions to gather any spare batteries strewn throughout the factory so they can fight their way out.
