Assault Machine is a action Adventure game. The aim is trying to destroy the enemy on planet Targon, before the enemy (the AI) is destroying the player (the Galactic Police). The player controls four different droid-agents, named Bond, Chan, Holmes and Chan.
On a map the player chose which island to place a droid on. Flight over sea with the spaceship, trying to fly to a island.
Flight over the island with the spaceship, trying to fly to the drop zone, dropping a droid. Leaving the island.
After the droid is leaved on a island, is will be ambushed by Targons army, and the droid must use missiles to defend it self.
The player can then go back and pick the droid up again, and destroy all buildings (weapon complex) on the island. If not all the buildings are destroyed during a raid, the player can do the mission again trying to take out the remaining buildings.
After all buildings on all ten islands are destroyed, the player wins.
