Give Up, Robot

Author Comments

Hey everybody, we're back with a new game full of bright, sparkly colors and soul-crushing challenges. Give Up, Robot is a game about jumping, grappling, and repeating...with hundreds of deaths in-between. If you have a tendency to cry like a baby go ahead and crawl away, 'cause this one won't hold your hand. Then again, if you pour brutal platformers on your morning cereal, you'll have something to look forward to in Give Up, Robot, especially in the Hard levels. Swing your way through 61 levels until you achieve Zen-mastery of robotic locomotion. Just don't expect any encouragement on the way, OK?


Left/Right arrow - Move

X, S, or Up arrow - Jump

Z or A - Fire your grappling hook. Release to let go.

After firing your grappling hook, the Up and Down arrows adjust your height, the Left and Right arrows adjust your swing.

To pause the game, click outside the game window. Click inside the window to un-pause.

this is hard

its fun but very hard

Unforgivable, eye-searing, addictive

Okay, so the cons first:
-Hurts the eyes after a while. This is really the first time ever that a game did this to me. Or anything, really.
-The difficulty curve is kind of weird sometimes.
-EXTREMELY difficult

Now the pros:
-Very nice and fitting graphic style.
-The controls are intuitive, easy to learn and spot-on.
-Addictive as HELL! Sure, it's hard, but you always know that you can do it and you keep playing.

All in all, if you have epilepsy or are easily frustrated, this game is not for you. Other than that, you should definitely give this game a try!

WOW my eyes!!!

dayum Adult Swim! this game blew my mind, and its pretty damn hard too. And like other people said it gets very addicting. i remember playing this a while back but never reviewing it. It has that awesome retro aspect, lots of colors, neon, bright and such. Retro font and great chiptune music keeps me hooked as well! Very well done Adult Swim! ^_^b
