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.

Up until the fifth emote boss, the Human Campaign is well balanced and fun. There is a huge number of bugs in the Raybot section. Such as, for some reason the exit never reopens for me to finish. Also, I f use the laser wall attack and it touches where I set the human spawn to be, it glitches and the human appears and dies over and over.

Fuck this game is addicting, I made a few ( I think ) perfectly cool robots. I made a shark,a cake (ROFL PORTAL EASTER EGG XD ) a smileyface and a dick. Saw some other cool ideas myself too, like people making predators and just funny shit. Great game, or greatest game? Well im sure I keep playing this for a long while. :D 5/5 added to favorites.

Dude, I have just been finding addictive game after addictive game tonight! I really liked how there was constantly action going on. It was amazing with how there was such a wide variety of enemies to fight. I had no idea there was an entire row down of those guys that I had not looked at. I wish I had some idea what the title meant. Who cares, this is awesome!

I especially love the sounds. It gives you a great sense of being in a crazy world. I was a tad disappointed you could apparently not really play as a boss immediately. It would have been cooler if you did. The graphics are flawless!

This game is really fun, its cool how you can make your own levels and upload them for other people to play, but after for playing for a bit I have conclude that Sabtastic is evil.
