In Origin's first science fiction RPG and a precursor to Space Rogue, you are chosen by the beleaguered resistance on planet XK-120 to lead the revolution against sinister robot oppressors. Restore freedom to the city of Metropolis by fighting robot enemies, explore cities, and find a way to disable the robots' central control. The skill-based gameplay foreshadows Interplay's classic Wasteland, although much more simplistic. Overall, a noble effort for its time that would soon be surpassed by better descendants, although the game's humor and fun gadgets will keep you enthralled for hours. This game also deserves notice as Chuck "Chuckle" Bueche's first design for Origin. Thumbs up!
