I.D.E.A.L., a company led by Dr. Baldrick and his wash bucket (which was built for assistance) assistant WASHY, has a hold on the world and it’s tendrils in every business (though they are mostly famous for their snacks). In the year 200X, however, I.D.E.A.L. has nearly obtained it’s actual objective: turn Dr. Baldrick into a PERFECT BEING. Thanks to the efforts of multiple labs across the globe, hundreds of overtime hours, countless lives, and 42 missed kids’ birthdays, Dr. Baldrick will finally be able to obtain his life’s ambition: PERFECTION.
That is, of course, unless there was someone (or something) to stop him.
Take control of the failed experiments Rose, Ángel, Deckster, and Boogie and help them escape from Dr. Baldrick’s clutches. Fight through a scientist and robot riddled lab, take the fight to the streets, and, eventually, THE WORLD!
But escape is not enough! You must travel the globe and stop Baldrick, WASHY, and the evil, ever present, globally oppressive company I.D.E.A.L. the only way you know how: WITH YOUR FISTS!
