You find yourself placed in the cockpit of an aircraft cum transforming robot which has the sole responsibility of destroying the enemy outposts both strategically as well as through direct combat.
This game is made in an interesting platform with a very interactive graphics user interface which has put this game ahead of its time. The game is absolutely free and is a sure shot fun to play.
