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!

Controls:
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.

Awesome game. Eye-candy graphics, one of my favourite kind of games (I dont know how its named, OK!? >:C), and the animation is smooth like oil. (or silk?)
And not to mention the soundtrack. Aint nothing better to listen to while exploding a robot into pieces (or vice-versa. lrn2win nub). It reminds me alot of "Berzerk Land" (find it at the official Berzerk website. Its like this but without robots and futures).

BUT! ONE LITTLE FLAW WHICH COMPLETELY F@#!KS THE GAME UP. Or at least for me, yknow.(sorry for the rage but its true ;n;)
I made a map, customized mah bot, weaponized him, and all. I go try the pattern, everything works fine. I press "Space", the exit opens, and poof, I'm ready.
That is, unless I sometime (always) forget one little detail I want and have to re-program the pattern.
Sadly, I press Space and nothing happens. :C

This is very unique and not to mention a killer game that shows off Newgrounds true potential in gaming. And also let's not forget during the game while you play. It has an awesome sense of doom the whole way, and fast-paced gameplay that runs very well on my Apple - iMac computer...^_^...So with that being said I truly believe with out a doubt that I will be playing Cathode Raybots for a very very long time!
