Atomic Robo-Kid (アトミックロボキッド) is a 1988 arcade game by UPL. Treco ported it to the Sega Mega Drive in 1990.

Story

Radiation and alien invasion have nearly destroyed the Earth outpost colony Terra-12, and it's up to you, Atomic Robo-Kid, to stop it.

Gameplay

A shoots; there is no rapidfire. B jumps. You aren't bound to the ground — hit Up and Down to fly in mid-air or go back to the ground. C appears to do nothing.
