S.C.A.R.A.B. John Ratcliff / Electronic Arts 1997

This game is from the designer of CyberStrike 2 and who became lead programmer on PlanetSide. Scarab is an action strategy game with a combat environment that revolves around the dual struggle for territorial control or death to your opponents. You represent the Gods of the Underworld, disembodied spirits which bring to life the different combat robots. While your spirit has vast powers the mechanical bodies you inhabit are designed solely for raw combat. Scarab is set in Egypt where players joust amid seven fully textured settings that include structures such as pyramids, tombs, or marketplaces. Those arenas include an array of elements that help create more interesting gameplay. Some of those elements include: multi-tiered buildings, elevators, moving platforms, tunnels, and underground labyrinths. When you play the game you get 3 incarnations. At each incarnation you have your choice of which robot you wish to control, Anubis, Horus, or Sekhmet. You can equip each robot with select weapons. For instance, the nimble robot "Horus" who sports a bird-like head, flies around with a jet pack, and is adept with trap or mine related weapons. Players can progress through five weapon levels for a total of 40 different weapons including: mortars, lasers, mines and a variety of missile systems. Scarab offers 140 missions where players can test strategies from assaults and artillery strikes to ambushes and defensive perimeters. After your third life is lost your spirit is released to haunt the world that you can only vaugely perceive. There are 2 ways to win the game, control the battlefield through power producing towers, or to kill all of the opposing robots 3 times each. For the v1.1 patch (Mplayer release) a new game option is now available called "deathmatch." In deathmatch mode you cannot win the game by power, but instead the winner is determined by the last robot left alive.
