You're a one-man force in this futuristic fight against organized crime. In the year 2110, chaos and criminals rule the city of Meggagrid, which is built on the remains of what was once Los Angeles. Armed with a dizzying array of firepower from prominent technologist Dr. Grubert, you venture into the city with a series of missions designed to take down the Pitt Family, the city's reigning crime lords. Equipped with up to nine weapons and aided by over 20 different kinds of power-ups, you'll encounter enemies on land and in the air while roving through seven action-packed levels and one training mission.
