|Country of Origin||United States of America|
Description from the packaging.
Multi-player arcade-combat action.
Deep inside the granite mantle of the Earth, there is an evil so great that man dares not speak the word. Only whispers have filtered out into the land of the living. The warlords of KRALTHA, dominators of the inner Earth, have constructed a prison so deadly, so filled with danger and loathsome mutants, that all who have attempted to penetrate the secrets of FORT APOCALYPSE have vanished without a trace.
The SKY DWELLERS have chosen you from their best assault pilots. You encountered the KRALTHAN surface patrols and have been victorious, but you never imagined an assault on FORT APOCALYPSE itself. You think of the hopeless captives, in the KRALTHAN prisons who have been taken as slavethralls for the KRALTHANS. As your nerves turn to ice, you lift off in your ROCKET-COPTER and check the NAVATRON for enemy attack units in the vicinity. You've heard rumors that these vast underground vaults are defended by rock-boring WORMLINGS, with digestive juices powerful enough to dissolve MOLYCHROME-111 copter hulls. And in the KRALTHAN armories, are the latest in SERVO-TANK INTERCEPTORS, as well as ultra fast ROBO-CHOPPERS.
You must descend through the KRALTHAN DISRUPTOR fields, capturing weapons and fuel, and freeing the enslaved masses. Past the disruptor fields, the danger grows in the VAULTS of DRACONIS, where the very granite is locked in a temporal matrix. Then swiftly, ever so swiftly, you descend into the ROTATING FIELD-ENVELOPE, where time itself is scarred and twisted back on itself.
And still the greatest trial awaits. The CRYSTALLINE caves that surround FORT APOCALYPSE, are themselves alive with a sublifeform that feeds on the psionic energies of the captured slavethralls.
It is here that the battle between life and death must climax. It is here that you will triumph or be destroyed by the iron fist of KRALTHA. It is here that you will encounter FORT APOCALYPSE!
