It is the year 2097. The corporation known as World Aeronautics and Robotics (W.A.R), with its stranglehold on the space-travel business, is the most powerful entity on Earth. A new position, the very important and powerful job of W.A.R. representative to Jupiter's newly colonized moon of Ganymede, has opened up within the corporate hierarchy.
Ten corporate executives have applied for the job, each with his or her own reasons and motives. The corporation has decided that since all the applicants are equally qualified, they should fight for the job, using robots.
One Must Fall 2097 is a 2D fighting game in which, as one of the job applicants, you choose from ten possible robot fighters. Each is rated in power, agility, and endurance. The robots also have different handling characteristics, as well as unique signature moves.
During fights, each robot has a Health bar and a Stun bar. Both are full, initially, but decrease when the robot is hit by an attack. When the Stun bar is drained completely, the robot is stunned for a moment, allowing its opponent a free attack. The stun bar slowly recharges over time, unlike the health bar. Fights can take place in standard or special "hazard arenas," featuring traps such as extending spikes or jet fighters that strafe the combatants.
The game also has a tournament mode. You begin this mode with a default robot and a limited supply of cash. By entering one of four available tournaments and competing successfully, you'll earn more cash to pay for repair costs between fights as well as entrance fees for more lucrative tournaments. The cash can also be used to upgrade both your character and your robot, and to acquire different robots as well. ~ Kyle Knight, All Game Guide
