The game has two characters to choose from: Tony Lewis and Myra Lane. Each has a different starting weapon. Tony uses a slower, but stronger gun than Myra. Myra uses a faster machine gun-like weapon, which causes less damage. Additional weapons can be picked up throughout the game. Armorines can be played alone or with other players. The multi-player version can accommodate up to 4 players. It is compatible with Nintendo’s Rumble Pak.
