In 1988, the crime rate in the United States rose by more than 400 percent. New York City, the site of a massive nerve gas attack by the Soviet Union, is transformed into a maximum-security prison, covering all the incarceration requirements of the United States. Sealed off from the world by a 50-foot containment wall, it is a society in and of itself. Once you go in, you never come back.
As a final security measure, a nuclear bomb has been installed in the head of the Statue of Liberty. While its existence is a closely guarded secret, the revolutionary NLFA have obtained the president’s nuclear arming device and are threatening to detonate the bomb unless their demands are met.
The year is now 1993:your mission is to recover the arming device and codes before all of New York is reduced to radioactive rubble.
