In another dimension far from ours, a company named Overclocked created a game for the Nintendo 64 called Lapis Collision. With a shoe string budget, the game featured 12 playable characters. 8 starter characters, and 4 unlockable characters.
A dramatic departure from other fighting games, such as Street Fighter. Instead of winning by depleting an opponent's life bar, players seek to knock opposing characters off the stage, KOing them. Characters do not have "health"; they can take an unlimited amount of damage, however, each hit adds to the character's damage percentage. This percentage starts at 0%, but can exceed 100% and caps at 999%, and the higher the damage percentage, the farther an attack will launch an opponent, and the easier it will be to knock them off of the stage. Being knocked too far above, beside, or even under the stage will KO a character. If knocked off, a character may attempt to get back onto the stage by jumping or using various "recovery" moves before they reach the stage's boundaries. Some characters have different recovery moves, while others have better jumps. Some characters are heavier, making them harder to knock off the stage, and making it harder for them to get back onto the stage, while others are lighter, making it easier for them to get knocked away, as well as easier for them to get back.
The greeks are a wonderful culture with many different gods and myths. Hercules, Narcissus, and Achilles are all myths that are retold to this day and have relevance in our current society. Themes of love, hate, betrayal, and arrogance populate stories from this time. But there have been lost stories as well; forgotten by the sand of time. Including: the story of a peasant named Domiclese, a shepherd who angered the gods with his hubris.
When the gods turned their focus to Domiclese, they discovered that not only was Domiclese a shepherd, he was also secretly a robot who could fire lasers out of his face. When Domiclese melted Apollo and Mercury with his “laser face” it signaled the beginning of “The Great Robot War.” The robots eventually overthrew the pantheon and established a “New Robot Order.” The robots forced the humans underground for years to toil in their underground mines to find igneous rocks, which robots [sic] eat to gain power.
And now the people are fighting back.
