Nylon Standoff two heroes, Jake and Duke, must find their way through multiple levels of robot factories and the maze of the canal zones in search of Professor Sarah Bellum (a voluptuous young lady famous for her knowledge of cybernetics), freeing other human hostages along the way.

Players portray Jake and Duke, the two heroes of the game. They must fight their way through hordes of evil robots to face the gigantic "reptilons" that have taken over Planet X. There are innumerable different robots and reptilons for the players to conquer, each having its own unique comic book-style appearance, action, and level of computerized intelligence.

In the robot factories, the heroes find food lockers, bomb lockers, and special weapons to help their defense. Bonus points are awarded for firing at and destroying the computers and other furniture. On each level of the factory they must find the switch to start the "electro-stairs" or ladder to climb to the next floor. At the end of each factory level, bonus "lives" are awarded to each player according to the number of human captives rescued.

After defeating the reptilon stationed at the exit of one factory and clearing the next level, the player finds himself seated in a comically animated "cybersled" at the beginning of the canal zone maze. If he finds his way through the maze, the player selects one of three doors to choose his path through the three different sectors of the robot factories of Planet X. If he cannot find his way through to the end of the maze, the game automatically chooses a default path.

Players are encouraged to add coins to continue on their mission to find Professor Sarah Bellum and liberate human hostages. In order to increase longevity of player interest in Escape, there is an operator-selectable limit to the number of coins allowed per game. If this option is enabled, only players who have become skilled at game play are allowed to see the end of the game. See the Game Options section in Chapter 2 for more information about this option.

NOTE: Jake is the left player and Duke Is the right player.
