Magazine review- Electronic Games (1985)

1) Developed in 1983 and released in 1984.
2) Player controls "Unhappy Interface Robot #1984", a servant robot that has become self-aware and decides to rebel against Big Brother.
3) Inspired by Isaac Asimov novel with same name.

4) First third-person shooter - first third person 3D game is Treasure Hunt (1982), first third-person shooter with 360 degree movement is Xybots (1987), first polygonal third-person shooter with 360 degree movement is Fade to Black (1995).

5) Polygons are used in computer graphics to compose images that are three-dimensional in appearance. Usually (but not always) triangular, polygons arise when an object's surface is modeled, vertices are selected, and the object is rendered in a wire frame model. This is quicker to display than a shaded model; thus the polygons are a stage in computer animation. 

6) The most expensive game to buy, that listed on the site - it costs 6 000 dollars in 2020.

7) Emulated in: MAME
