The instructions for this set and one alternate model are on a CD-ROM. Winning all three "villain chase" games unlocks three more models. The games are hard to beat though, so I just typed 'W' on my keyboard during each game to cheat my way out of them.

Bricklist notes
To me, this set is the precursor to Mindstorms. The instructions for this set, as well as several alternate models, are on a CD-ROM. The tracked truck is my favorite model. I haven't built the fighting robot (Crusher) yet though.

The instructions for this set, as well as several alternate models, are on a CD-ROM. There are also two games--one is similar to Pac-Man, and I defeated gremlins in the other one.
