Description of 2400 A.D.

In Origin's first science fiction RPG and a precursor to Space Rogue, you are chosen by the beleaguered resistance on planet XK-120 to lead the revolution against sinister robot oppressors. Restore freedom to the city of Metropolis by fighting robot enemies, explore cities, and find a way to disable the robot's central control. The skill-based gameplay foreshadows Interplay's classic Wasteland, although much more simplistic.

Overall, a noble effort for its time that would soon be surpassed by better descendants, although the game's humor and fun gadgets would keep you enthralled for hours. This game also deserves notice as Chuck "Chuckle" Bueche's first design for Origin. Thumbs up!

Classic Game, I remember My brother (RIP) playing this as i was only 8 or 9yr old. but i remember it being so immersive (for the time). it was like we were on an adventure. Now I can relive it, and reminisce. Awesome.

Why doesn't space-bar work in the PC version when talking to an NPC? When I played this on the Apple IIe (Laser clone actually) when I was a kid, you could type sentences.. is this a bug or just the way it was on PC?

I loved this game. It was so hard. But I finished it in the 80's. I had a PC and Amiga. We would get the games off BBS's for all platforms, TRUE PIRACY and HACKING AND ANARCHY! What A TIME!

Answer: A very awesome, very good, excellent, simple but enjoyable, and a very addictive game!

Can't get past "insert disk and press key", just loops

This is one of the games I enjoyed so much when I had my first ever PC, I think I was 13 yr old back brings back the good memories!

All copies of this game I can find online seem to have a bug, when I get arrested, my confiscated equipment doesn't show up in the containers to be picked up lie it should. Anyone else having this issue?

@BOB: CoD used to be a really good game and i still occasionally enjoy it (read: when drunk), but yea... I get the feeling many see that "hey, free games!" and think that they will find GB-sized, full HD 3D games from like '07 and forward..

This game was Origin's ULTIMATE RPG in space. It's not only huge, but the storyline is unbeatable. If you liked Ultima 2 through 5 you'll love this but it's science fiction!

Amon must think COD is a great game. :D

These classic RPG's are awesome. Try making something better with DOS from 1988 then buddy? Wait you cant.

This game was so damn cool when it first came out. It was hard as all getup. this game goes in the top 10 games ever released on any platform. It was NOT EASY :)

Amon 2012-07-11 -8 points DOS version

Why don't the 3 asswipes below me join up and get some fucking hockers and have a god damn orgy with the creators of this game if they're so willing to suck there cocks already. 0/10, this game fucking sucks.

Fantastic game! I think it was the first to increase your skills as you use them! It's a short rpg, but tells a good story and manages to convey the oppression of the robots very well. Long live the resistance!

Gorbage 2011-04-15 0 point DOS version

This game was fantastic! I had to think for about 5 minutes to remember the name, and then ended up searching "old origin rpg robot game" which brought me here.

I'm going to have to give this a try! The memories!
