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

Its perfect! just that sometimes when you make bosses(this happened to me) there will sometimes be glitchy walls or no walls at all! please fix this, otherwise its awesome! its like making your own megaman boss battle! its so creative! some weapons have fully functional settings, which makes millions of combinations possible, and the face creator! that is awesome! giving looks to your bot is awesome! theres nothing i would change, and by the way, the shield weapon,it would be cool to decide if it could break after a couple hits. And (if can please add this) it would be cool if you could add another pattern if your bot is at half health if people wanted to! But everything is perfect the way it is, im just saying a couple ideas. The game can have like, a billion patterns due-to the weapon choice, the block placement, and the fact that the bot can double jump. This is my dream game. Just to say, AWESOME!!! if you can add my ideas please let me know. Thanks for the great game!
