Our old TVs have returned from being scuttled into space and they have made a sport out of killing humans!

Play as humans to fight waves of Raybots OR play as the Raybots and build new robots for humans to fight. The best robots will be added to official campaigns! Also note - that campaign list has a yellow scroll bar down the ride side, with a lot more campaigns down below!

Big thanks to Mike for all the programming support with the API and drawing tools. Big thanks to Stamper for the player select music and menu sprucing. Big thanks to RicePirate for the intro and select screen voice. Big thanks to all the testers who helped build Raybots!

A or Z = Primary Weapon
S or X = Secondary Weapon
Arrows - Run, Jump, Drop through platforms

In human mode you can earn trophies and compete for high scores in the campaign mode. You can also browse the Boss Files and discover bosses not featured in the campaigns! Your letter grade is based on how much health you maintain during battle. Your score is based on a combination of health and time throughout the campaign.

In Raybot mode, you can edit your level, draw your own robot face, equip hats and hands, customize your weapons and record a pattern. While recording a pattern, hit SPACE to open the exit, then walk over the exit to close your loop! Every boss is a looping pattern. You must TEST and defeat your boss in order to save him, otherwise it isn't fair sport.

You unlock hats and hands by voting on the Raybots you fight in human mode.

In Raybot mode, some weapons have alternate versions. For example click the bullet icon multiple times for different bullets, or click the bomb icon multiple times for different bombs. Remember, you can equip both your A and S key weapons! When customization sliders are available, give them a try and see how it impacts your weapon.

Tap your "M" key to toggle Mute.

UPDATE (2/8/13): Turns out there was a massive teleporting bug that could result in you not being able to open the exit and close your pattern loop. I imagine this is the cause of the complaints about that issue. It's fixed! You may need to clear your cache.

A how-to on the raybot programming might be nice,
Spend 30 minutes trying to create a pattern, without succes.
Cannot test without a pattern, cannot save without a test.
Spacebar does what.?

Awesome game. I like the part where you could create levels. 4 stars because sometimes when I play at the raybot campaign (that is when you create patterns of raybots) there is the same glitch where if I could not beat my patterned raybot at the first test, I will try to change my pattern but I can't because the human (robot or I don't know what that is but it has a brain) instantly dies (while I am making the pattern) when I pass over it while using my energy weapon (the rainbow colored). So I have to refresh the page and then make a new level. Please fix this glitch. I don;t mean to be rude. It's just a request.

(P.S. If my english is bad or my review is too long and you can't understand, please be considerate)

Except for an ass called Epyk spamming a robot called dick and balls it's not a bad game.

WOW! I love the whole thing! The industrial/grunge and futuristic style, the graphics, the game itself, all of these things are excellent. But the best thing is that this game is based on players contributions. It feels somewhat customized and fun to play! The level/aesthetics editors are great to use!

I would suggest that you allow players to create GIFs, though. On the TVs, some GIFs would look awesome!


Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

Really fun! I liked the way you could add your own bosses, but it should at least give you SOME control over the fire rate of the boss without having to change the damage. But besides that, it was fun! :D
