Assault City comes in two flavors: the control pad version and a Light Phaser version. What we have here is the D-Pad version ready to be played online, on your browser, without the need of installing stuff, etc.


In the latter half of the 21st century, robots have been engaged in labor in several actives, from housework to more dangerous areas. Suddenly, the control system plotted a revolt against the humans, and ordered every robot to annihilate all of their former masters.
