Rise of the Robots was released in May 1995 in the UK.

Rise of the Robots is the main attempt by UK slot machine manufacturer Bell-Fruit to create an arcade machine using a PC architecture. The game sealed the systems fate, but not before Gremlin Graphics attempted to port their consumer success 'Zool' to the platform, all games failed in the arcades.
