Auto Crusher Palladium is a robot-fighting game published by Pack-In-Video. However, the game is more a simulation than an actual 'hand on' fighting game. Read on. In the first mode, the player gets to build his own robot from scratch. There, he can pick various components such as body, weapons, AI computer etc... The only limitation here is the total weight of the final machine. Various types are available, from traditional biped robots to complex machines that can turn into wheeled vehicles or simply fly. Once completed, the robot is ready to fight and can be sent to the battle arena. There, things slightly differ from what anyone would expect - the robot automatically fights its opponent, and this for every rounds until one or the other wins. This aspect of the game is non-interactive (action buttons seem to switch from one mode to another, but it is not clear how they affect the game). If victorious, the player gets awarded PB points which can be spent in his factory to upgrade his robot. A versus mode is also available where up to five players can challenge each other.
Auto Crusher Palladium was released on February 25, 1994 in Japan for 8800 Yen.
