Setting the scene.
In a not so distant future, in the year 2034, the element Busterium will revolutionize the whole world. Using the new element as a power source, Buster Engines— alongside a central control computer, called BAC – were developed and replaced the old technologies in many areas.
Things went well for a long time, until BAC suddenly turns against humanity and uses the power and machines he has accumulated over time to take control of the Earth. After BAC’s attack and the subsequent chaos on Earth, the population was reduced by half. To save the remaining humans and the planet Earth, BAC must be stopped!
Fortunately, from the beginning there was a group who foresaw the danger from such a powerful AI. Secretly, they have been working on a weapon to defeat BAC—the Rolling Gun.
And now, the operation to destroy BAC begins. Being the last chance for the planet, players have to battle their way through a variety of opponents and finally face the out of control AI.
