Game Profile

The situation is critical. The evil Doctor K has created an army of deranged replicants in order to take over the world, and only two can stop him - Andy Attacker and Ben Breaker - the top soldiers of the CIA's special Crackdown force.

I believe the arcade game had two displays, which is why the screen in the MD version seems a bit 'busy'.

I've kept my eyes on this game for some time. Maybe it's time for another sweet 2p co-op game. I mean, there's always room for that, right?
