There are many criminal and terrorist groups known to be operating in
our solar system: The Multifaceted Ringworts of Scrim, Jabba MeGutt
with his alien syndicate 'DENIZEN' and of course Crax Bloodfinger
and his evil followers. However, all of these despicable characters
fade into obscurity when compared to General Ironside and his Metal Army.
Question: What do you do when a horde of Ironsides heavy metal henchmen
storm Slough nuclear power station, threatening to blow it up?
Answer: You send in Joe Blade. However, when you find out that Joe is busy
evicting an evil dictator from an unspecified latin american country, you
have to do the next best thing.
The mayor of Slough was forced to take the only course of action left open
to him, call in Harry Chainsaw, freelance bounty-hunter, ex marine and
part-time window cleaner from Oslo.

'THIS IS AN EMERGENCY ..... THERE IS AN EMERGENCY GOING ON ..... DON'T PANIC!
..... THE TIME BOMB IS SET ..... ARRRGGGHH...'
The Metal Army have infiltrated the power station, planting a small explosive
device just above the main reactor housing. Your mission is to find and
deactivate that bomb.
Metal Army automated combat units will kill you on contact, luckily the mayors
office have issued you with a large short-range thermoplasma servo-blaster,
which will restrain and eventually destroy the enemy mechanoids. Your blasters
energy level may be recharged from a flashing power point. To access certain
parts of the massive complex you will need to collect the green security passes.
To use a lift stand on it and push up.
WARNING: To compensate for damage caused by the Metal Army, the reactors automated
ventilation system will systematically discharge coolant gasses, built up electric
charge and fuel rods, these will also prove fatal if touched.
