|The dark planetoid Nemesis, on a collision
course with Earth, was destroyed to prevent the destruction of our planet.
Seemingly harmless fragments of the shattered planetoid penetrated the
atmosphere and implanted themselves in the earth. Years later, the fragments
surprised scientists as they grew and morphed into giant, horrible monsters
bent on eradicating the human race. The United Earth Taskforce established
Team 47 GOMAN, a group of giant armored robots, to combat the Children
of Nemesis. From a cavity in the chest of each warrior, human pilots
control their actions. The pilots are a highly skilled group of martial
artists who use hand to hand combat as well as medium-distance weapons
to counter the monsters' attacks. Each mech is equipped with specialized
armor and weapons such as a plasma harpoon, a photon hook and laser
cannons. Battles among Team 47 GOMAN mech warriors and the organic monsters
of Nemesis occur in six geographic locales: the Mojave Desert; San Francisco;
the Hawaiian Islands; Tokyo; Denver and New York. The player must select
the appropriate characters to battle monsters such as Roggosh, the desert
dweller; Kothos, the mountain dweller and Gaingris, the nightmarish
all-terrain monster. The player must conquer his adversaries and move
on to the next locale, meeting a different monster in each territory.
He must defend the planet from the monsters while protecting the buildings,
mountains and other structures that may be in the way. Props such as
buildings, boulders, cars, hovercrafts and power stations can actually
be picked up and tossed. The mechs stand knee deep in the forest as
they stomp around, seeking their opponents.
