Non-stop action-packed gameplay.
Located on the outer rim of a distant galaxy is a planet with deep secrets and a mysterious origin. This is Iron Star, a world inhabited by a society of robots. During a disaster in the science lab, a sinister robot with a mind of its own was created - the evil General Corrosive. After eliminating his makers, this powerful megalomaniac of a machine began to fulfil his dream of creating the ultimate army. Playing as Glitch, the gun-slinging, enemy crushing half-ton menacing bot of Droid City, travel under, and above Iron Star, through a vast mechanical world with over 40 missions including sniping, sneaking, puzzle solving, non stop shoot'em up action and mini-games added to the mix.

One robot is never enough for anyone!
Found as scrap metal, but transformed into destructive machinery, Glitch is determined to free his people from the evil clutches of General Corrosive and his maniacal army.
He has at his disposal 17 lethal weapons than can be upgraded or stolen from enemies along the way. And thanks to the incredible hijacking Tether Gun, 10 other friendly and enemy 'bots can be played and possessed - even Bosses!

You can find Glitch and his army available worldwide on the PlayStation®2 computer entertainment system, the XboxTM video game system from Microsoft, and Nintendo GameCubeTM, this December 5th for a suggested retail price of 54.99€ with a 12+ rating.
