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!

dont judge a book by it's cover...

To be brutally honest my first thought was " well this looks rubbish" when i first saw the menu. but then i pressed the play button. the true ingeniousness of the game hit me after only a few levels. this game is smart. Really, really, REALLY smart. the enemy will ambush you. they will flank you. they will push you out of your hiding so they can pick you off while your on your retreat. but they will also retreat if they consider the situation... bad (i wish i could think of a better adjective :/) It can be pretty fun on later levels watching a enemy's plan come together :)

even though this game doesn't got any music nor any particularly interesting graphics it is one the better flash RTS games I have played.

Overall great game.

I really enjoyed this game. It had many traits making it fun. The AI was incredible, better then some of the games that you gotta buy. The only thing that could have improved was the story, but many people look towards the gameplay more. Other than that, it was flawless.

i love the game

overall the AI amazed me in how you could just click and be able to focus more on strategy and troop movements instead of click click click and letting something fall through the gaps

+3 AI
+2 simplicity
+2 upgrades
-1 i thought the maps wore just to big and i did not know where to start moving at first
-1 sometimes the AI makes the bots run into walls and out of cover
+4 the graphics are in a kinda pixel flixel mood and i like that
-1 there was no music so it got tiresome
+2 sound affects

note for sequel)( you should make a single and squad player modes and have multiplayer p.s i love this game 5-5 10-10 and a fav
