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.



Rated 5 / 5 stars

This is an amazing game because it gave me something I forgot I wanted as a kid, being able to make a mega man boss. Playing all the interesting created bosses adds greatly to how epic this game is. Mega what? Mega Who?

The gameplay was good, while a bit laggy. But that's Adobe's fault, not yours.

However, I have to mention the biggest gripe, which is in the UI.

I thought that I was choosing a character, not a game mode. You know, like play as a robot, or play as a human. But apparently human means "Campaign", and robot means "Level Editor". And there are NO labels to indicate this, not even if I hover over the human or robot; I'm just supposed to magically know what it means.

It's pretty and all, but that's mystery meat navigation right there. A UI flaw that should always be avoided, where the developer designs something that is cryptic and/or uses vague images in an artistic way, but the UI suffers, and some to most users won't figure out wtf is going on.

Graphics, programming, sound, and controls were top notch, though.

4/5, -1 star for the Mystery Meat Navigation

TomFulp responds:

There is a line of text along the bottom of the screen when you rollover each character, although it is kinda easy to miss. It does explain the difference, though. Beyond that the UI in general is pretty mysterious, the game could definitely guide people through better than it does. I should still put in some help screens at the least.
