The city of the future is in peril. Malfunctioning robots have taken over the fusion power plant.

You, a SWAT team officer, have volunteered to infiltrate the plant. Your mission is to shut down the reactor before it goes into meltdown.

In order to distract the robots, you will be disguised in a robot suit. You carry a plasma puncher, a powerful weapon with limited range. (You might capture other weapons inside the plant as the robots are heavily armed.)

You must disable the robots which have seized vital control panels and find the emergency shutdown key.

Unfortunately we do not know which robot is holding the key, so you have to take down all robots near the control panel. Time is running out. The main reactor might reach critical condition in less than an hour. If it does, the city is dooms and a catastrophic death toll can be expected ....

Go! Go! Go!
