This has bothered me for several years, please help me in identifying this game:

In the 80's I subscribed to GAMES magazine, and they would often have ads for board games and the like.

One ad looked like this:

There is a robot in a hallway, firing an M-16 machine gun towards a group of zombies slowly advancing up the hallway. Next to him, is a scientist, apparently fleeing the scene. I remember the scientist had a sandwich in his labcoat pocket. The robot was seemingly pieced together from spare parts. The bottom was cube shaped, and had numbers painted on the side, along with a satchel filled with clips. The cube had rubber tires attatched to an axel on two sides, and a caster wheel in the front for steering. The upper part consisted of a mast topped with a flat rectangular head, with a circular antenna on top. The arms were random metal tubes and pipes pieced together. The arms held and fired the machine gun, and shell casings were ejecting as the gun fired.

The text went like this: "Scientists vs. Zombies! Who will win? Scientists must save the human race with the help of their loyal robots. Can you save humanity?" or something like that.

Any ideas? This is definately not "Zombies!!!", although the concept seems similar. Also, I remember TSR's Escape for New York board game appearing around the same time, so it was definately in the 80's. That's all I can remember. Thanks for any ideas!
