From the back of the box:
You're tinkers and engineers who have come to the scrap yard to test your mettle. From parts and pieces carefully picked from heaps of junk, construct killer robots capable of visiting devastation and ruin upon all who oppose them. Then, send them into a no-holds-barred, anything goes bot battle to see who's got the roughest robot in the scrap yard! Well, maybe these bots aren't that threatening. But it's still fun to let 'em duke it out!
