Krazy Ivan USA

You'd have to be crazy to try and stop an alien invasion single-handedly, but luckily, Krazy Ivan is just that. As Ivan Popovich you'll need to guide your Steel Cossack Powersuit through five different zones, rescuing hostages and dispatching the various enemies and Sentients that stand in your way. Belying the fact that you're in control of a large mech of sorts, the game moves very quickly and is more reminiscent of a first-person shooter than of something like MechWarrior. Armed initially with only basic machine guns, rockets, and a 'scythe beam' special weapon, Ivan must eradicate the enemy presence within each zone, rescue a quota of hostages, and ultimately destroy the zone generator before proceeding. The various drones that populate each level serve as little more than an annoyance but by destroying them, human prisoners can be set free and Energy Cores can be acquired. The latter can be used to purchase weapon and armor upgrades between levels, giving the player access to salvos of guided missiles, plasma cannons, and an assortment of special weapons with foreboding names like 'Medusa' or 'Vortex Bomb.'
