Virtual reality game. Screen shot from the 3-D virtual reality video game "Battletech" - one of the multi-player games on offer at Virtual World's entertainment centres in the USA. Virtual World is one of a number of companies hoping to cash in on the current US craze for digital theme parks. Visitors to its centres pay $15 admission, receive a mission briefing and then engage in a futuristic virtual duel in which colossal two-legged "battlemechs" fight to the death on the desert planet Solaris VII. An alternative game involves death races between armed mining vehicles flying through the canals of Mars.
