(Soukou Kihei Votoms - The Battling Road)
Soukou Kihei Votomss is an action game by Takara and based on a popular Japanese animation series aired for the first time in 1983. Players take controls of heavy armed Votom mechas and fulfill missions assigned to them, all of them taking place in 3-D environments heavily relying on the Super Famicom's mode-7. But before springing into action, the player must fist undergo a short training program, and learn how to pilot a standard ATM-09-ST (codenamed The Scope Dog) equipped with a weak arm punch as only weapon. Passed this test, the first real mission begins. Now an heavy machine gun is available for combat and things get a big more serious with real enemies capable of firing deadly vulcan guns as well as missiles. Later stages get harder, from simple area mode where the player can freely move around a closed arena, to complex stages where he has to follow a given path and confront heavily armed bosses. As expected, more weapons are available later in the game, such as the poweful shoulder missile launcher.
Released on October 29, 1993 in Japan for 9800 Yen.
The game was never release outside Japan.
