The time is 1999 and television remains the most popular source of entertainment in the country. A decidedly violent game show by the name of Smash T.V. has captivated audiences worldwide and is the most-watched program on the small screen. In this bloody game show, contestants battle hordes of mutants and weapon-toting maniacs for cash and valuable prizes.
The action in Smash T.V. is viewed from directly above, and gameplay is similar to that found in Robotron: 2084. You can move in all directions with one joystick while firing in all directions with another joystick. You must shoot your way through waves of enemies in room after room while trying to avoid enemy fire, round mines and exploding mutants. In addition to shooting enemies, you should gather up prizes, cash and keys, the last of which will allow you to enter the Pleasure Domes. You can also snag weapon enhancements as you go.
If you live long enough while playing a round of Smash T.V., you will eventually encounter enemy bosses with such names as Mutoid Man and Cobra Man. The last such boss is the host of Smash T.V. himself, a man who simply goes by the name of Game Show Host. ~ Brett Alan Weiss, All Game Guide
