To play it we take on the role of Shelly La Bomba Harrison who earned his code name defusing bombs for the Global Defense Force. Harrison had to make a career change when evil transhumanist mastermind Dr. Jadus Heskel unleashed members of his cyber cult on the streets of Neo DC. The Bomb knew, it was time to start causing explosions instead of preventing them.
The mission to assassinate Heskel is not for the faint-hearted. We'll leave a trail of carnage along huge multi-path levels filled with gigantic explosions, countless secret weapons, and inhuman enemies behind every corner. There is no possibility of regeneration, so our only chance of salvation is to shoot and run.
In our favour we have a wide arsenal of weapons, with alternative fire modes and different types of ammunitionn. Among them Harrison's favorite, the three-barreled Loverboy.
