Fans of the classic sci-fi movie Fantastic Voyage or its light-hearted progeny Innerspace will be thrilled by EA's announcement of MicroBot, a downloadable arcade shooter which injects you into the human body to blast nanomachines.

Cast as the eponymous MicroBot, players will tour a body to wipe out its biotechnological infestation, visiting the veins, bones, lungs and brain. According to EA, "the rhythms and fluids of the human body create a dynamic environment that affects movement and gameplay, providing both combat advantages and additional hazards to overcome."

MicroBot will also boast unlockable upgrades and drop-in, drop-out co-op multiplayer.

Made with RoboBlitz and Star Trek DAC developer Naked Sky Entertainment, MicroBot will be released for download on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 in Winter 2011.

        Someone caught it!

        Or, someone caught it and was kind enough to keep me from feeling all alone in the 80s...
