Hello Folks:

I give up. I am looking for the title (and maker name) of this somewhat old arcade game that I saw at Kings Dominion (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kings_Dominion) back in the mid 1990s. Basically, the game was a cross between ARMORED WARRIOR (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oySTN_FLJeY) and any one of those famous 1-on-1 fighting games (http://www.Wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_fighting_games), such as KI (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Killer_Instinct) , MK (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mortal_Kombat_(1992_video_game)) , TK (http://www.Wikipedia.org/wiki/Time_Killers) , P-F (http://www.Wikipedia.org/wiki/Pit-Fighter) , etc. This game that I am referring to had anywhere from four to eight pairs of Human characters and their giant robot mechs. Each mech had a special trick up its sleeve and/or some unique weapon of some sort. I know that at least one of the Human mech pilots was actually a cyborg (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cyborg) with a bald head. In this game, there were several deathmatches, each consisting of just one mech fighting another mech in front of a different background setting. Does anyone know what I am talking about? Thank you in advance for your response! :)

Thank you both, Unicron and Sades! You guys are great; you have done your homework/research very well. After visiting the Internet sites that you both suggested, I concluded that it was in fact CYBERBOTS: FULLMETAL MADNESS (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cyberbots:_Full_Metal_Madness) - I recognized some of the machines and the characters - like the giant slasher-stalker (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Slasher_film) robot mech with the awesome chainsaw. I like this awesome gameplay video (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zcj2QxdDvfU) for it too! Coincidentally, I just found out that not only is this game similar to ARMORED WARRIORS (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oySTN_FLJeY), but it's also a successor to it as well, which really does not surprise me too much. Anyway, CYBERBOTS (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zcj2QxdDvfU) was always an old favorite of mine; in fact, it inspired me to create a giant robot mech manga series that involved 1-on-1 tournament fights that were held between machines that each represented some Underworld Cult and/or Secret Society (Illuminati (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Illuminati), Communist Party (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Communist_party), Fascist Party (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nazi_Party), Church of Satan (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Church_of_Satan), Vatican City (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Holy_See), etc.) - but that's really part of another story altogether. Anyway, you guys are great and I never ever want to leave you all! Thanks again for your help!
