Menus and gameplay are in English.

In the future, physical sports will be replaced by a violent virtual contest, where a lot of gambling and corporate cash is involved.

Such is the setting for this action-packed game, where you act as a jockey for a virtual tank of massive firepower, called a Rig. Navigate through the maze-like arenas with jumps, elevators and movable blocks. Pick up power-ups to overcome other Rigs, or Gems to advance through more than 40 levels.

Graphics and ambiance are inspired, it seems, by Tron, and place the player in a "wire framed" virtual environment. The focus here, though, is not racing, but rather blowing your opponent to oblivion. For that purpose the game gives the player progressively more power and versatility. Mini guns, laser cannons and heat seeking missiles are pretty much standard gear, but it also has a couple of twists of its own: feed your guns bouncing or shattering ammo rounds for added firepower, or experiment with the fly-by-wire missiles, where you remote control it to your target of preference. Shields and turrets are also at your disposal.

Also, as the game progresses, you can choose different tanks (Rigs) to use in your struggle to survive the clash. The game features 3-D graphics with light sourcing and multiplayer features.

  Manufacturer's description:

In the world of ASSAULT RIGS, physical sports no longer exist. All sports now take place in the virtual world of the Internet. The most popular sport is the mayhem and destruction caused by virtual rigs, or hover tanks. Choose one of three distinctive rigs and pilot it through 40 levels of competition. Your only goal is to win and make your sponsor, ZamCam, Inc., the biggest sponsor of the World Net Championship. Losing is not an option. After dominating the computer-controlled competition, turn your attention to some real world foes with the Two-Player mode. In the world of ASSAULT RIGS, it's all mind over matter.
