The Killbots of Cavern Station is a real time semi-tactical game. Use cover to kill the evil orange killbots.

Instructions:

WASD controls the camera.

Space bar to switch between your different squads

Click to send squad to location.

Squads will take cover behind any cover (white blocks) that their control rectangle touches or contains.

Squad members shoot automatically.

Tanks cannot take cover.

Make sure to use cover! It's super important!

Other Stuff:

Used:
Flixel and my own custom collision detection optimizations
Tile Studio/Graphics Gale for pixel art
Sfxr for sounds

awesome

really fun game except i find it too short and also the almost nonexestent variety of units is kinda bad if you make a sequel than please try adding where you don't choose when you change levels and you can't go to the shop every level pretty much like a storyline. but still a good game

Yea!

Sweet game, but maybe a little too fast, some variation in units would be nice, but otherwise awesome cover mechanics, kinda like an 8-bit Gears of War....kinda.

Awsome

you get point off for shortness and the kinda 2 fast way of gameplay the only pieces of advice i could give would be to slow down how fast enemys and your troops die and move maybe some new types of units like a anti-tank bot, a sniper bot-long range, slow rate of fire , a machine gunner type- inaccurate but a lot of bullets, tanks need to be slower than my regular troops maybe have a elevation thing so my troops can shoot farther than on regular ground

AWESOME!

this game is fantastic. I'm a really big fan of the simplicity of it. Many tactical games these days really involve building the most of the best units, but you kept things simple and fun. if you make a sequel, and you totally should, I would suggest the ability to purchase more squads, perhaps of different unit types, as well as different types of cover and possibly some sort of achievement system for some replay value. if it were longer that would be cool too. thanks for the fun game!

Love it.

Good work. Try and make a sequel, and have double selection (being able to select more than one squad at once), maybe different types of covers (eg. fragile covers), and different types of units.
