June 2014: March of the Killbots

March of the Killbots is Live!

The killbots are swarming and you have nothing but an emergency teleporter!

It’s a good thing the bots are so dumb that they don’t even avoid each other.

Play March of the Killbots

Instructions

  • Move in 8 directions with QWE ASD ZXC or 789 456 123 Keys.
  • Teleport to a random location with Space or number 0 key. (Danger!)
  • Make bots run into each other to kill them.
  • Survive as long as you can.

This game is in the style of the classic Robots, one of the game types that is very nostalgic for me. I played a version called Daleks (i.e. Dr. Who) on a black and white screen in the late ’80s. That memory is probably why I’ve made a few games with the same base mechanics over the years since then.
