Revolution X is an action-shooter arcade game released by Midway in 1994 and later adapted for the Sega Genesis/Mega Drive console. The player takes on the role of a member of an underground resistance movement called Revolution X, who must battle against a global organization known as The New Order Nation. The player is tasked with rescuing their bandmates from several different locations across the world, including London, Tokyo, New York City, Hollywood, and Rio De Janeiro. Each mission is set up with the option of continuing if the player fails to accomplish their goal and a boss battle at the end.

The basic objective of Revolution X is for players to utilize various weaponry such as rapid-fire machine guns, rocket launchers and homing missiles to shoot down enemy forces while collecting music cassettes in each level before advancing to subsequent stages. Cassettes can also be obtained by completing mini-games 15 stages that include Memory Matches, Dance Offs and more. Players must also rescue hostages located throughout each stage while avoiding fire from enemy forces that runs off low health points if hit repeatedly. To assist them in this task power-ups are made available throughout the level which enhance firepower or restore energy needed to continue playing. Revolution X also has a 'Password Save' feature where it remembers game progress after turning off your console or Arcade Machine
