About Elsie

Welcome to the planet Ekis, a bountiful world filled with natural resources and scientific discovery! There is chaos amongst this wonder however, in a world awash with natural disasters. Our story begins with Dr Grey, a talented scientist who engineered a team of high-tech androids with the power to prevent these disasters. These Androids were known as ‘The Guardians’.

The Guardian’s true power lay in the Arclight Core, an energy source that allowed them to bend the elements to their will. The world rejoiced in a new age of peace and safety, but this peace was short-lived as one day, without warning or explanation, the Guardians disappeared.

As winds whipped, and seas surged a newfound threat quickly emerged as an army of robots laid siege to Dr Grey's home, the city of Neotoño.

Amidst the chaos and threat of more disasters, Dr Grey forged one final android...Elsie. Built like none before her, she must find the Guardians and save planet Ekis.

Take on the role of this female robot powerhouse and blast through hordes of robots to reach the guardians and save the day! Get ready to kick butt and protect the planet you call home!
