This a PRE-ORDER for RobotWar:2684. Once all the printed materials (boxes, manuals, labels, etc.) are in our hands, we will immediately begin shipping orders in the order they were placed. Right now we're looking at the end of February as a reasonable estimate. Updates will be posted in the AtariAge Forum (This message will be updated with a link once the thread has been created).
Inspired by their never ending quest for progress, in 2684 man perfects the Robotrons: A robot species so advanced that man is inferior to his own creation. Guided by their infallible logic, the Robotrons conclude: the human race is inefficient and therefore must be destroyed; war is declared.
You are the last hope of mankind. Due to a genetic engineering error, you possess superhuman powers. Your mission is to stop the Robotrons and save the last human family.
In RobotWar:2684, the object is to save the last human family by rescuing the humans and destroying the Robotron enemies to advance to the next wave.
In each wave, your mutant player starts out in the middle of the arena, while the Robotrons and humans spawn around you. Use the joystick controller to move your player to avoid the enemies and pick up the humans. Use a second joystick or the fire button to shoot your laser gun to destroy the enemies and advance to the next wave.
