Experience 3D AI

This is ground breaking artificial intelligence. We aren't kidding. It is way beyond anything you have ever experienced. Constant battle action demands you stay in control,

The computer doesn't wait. It knows the rules of the game and plays to win. Memorization will not help you. There are no patterns here. It is impossible to play the same game twice because the AI reacts to thousands of world variables.

The AI handles situations like a human. No blind decisions. Attack enemies, maintain shields, collect energy, evade, follow orders -- 3D AI out thinks you and doesn't cheat!
