“Machine Instinct” is a challenging side-scrolling survival/score-chasing single-level action game set in a Dark Sci-Fi setting inspired by early 90s era films and video-games.

The Singularity is here and the Sky Grid is being overtaken by the hostile AI agents desperate for control over Sky Plasma Extraction Platform. Black Phoenix Corporation deploys its tactical quadruped active defense system WARDOG  and bipedal offensive unit WEREWOLF in order to protect the platform against the countless waves of enemy robots and make sure the energy extraction never stops...
YOUR GOAL: Hold your position at the “H”-point, destroy anything that approaches you and survive as long as you can while taking advantage of the weaponry/upgrades and resources of the platform.
