Thundering Robotic Combat for Those
Who Have the Guts!
If you think you have the skill to be top warrior - and the
courage to back it up - then step up to the challenge of Battledrome!
High tension and high stakes fill the Battledrome arena as
fully articulated Herculans wield their might effortlessly across the
cyberspace. Battledrome puts it all on the line as mighty Hercs fight
one-on-one for power, pride, and money.
Battledrome - a virtual reality combat arena where strategy
and tactics count as much as firepower. You choose your Herc, its weapons, the
arena conditions, the level of battle, and the amount to wager. Bet for prize
money to build your own arsenal of Hercs. Or, in desperation, bet your

head-to-head combat. Or, pit your Herc against the best of the
computer-generated opponents in Battledrome's own network universe. Win with
cunning or win with cannons. Either way, you'll have to challenge and duel your
way up the ladder. Only one fighter can be ranked #1.
Battledrome - blast into the MetalTech era.

viewscreen. Depending on the settings you selected during the negotiations
