Give Up, Robot

Share Collapse

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.


Good game

An actual good game from Adult Swim. Kind of seizure-inducing, but a well-structured platformer.

not bad

but it is 2010 and not 1985.

Gameplay could be improved, but you get 5 for that. Graphics would be -5, but OK I'll look the other way ( may be advisable to avoid epilepsy too ).

Coding is a little weak, jumping seems sloppy..........I'm out of words, not much else to comment on

Lvl 47...

J-zuz, that is ridiculous!

agressive after a while

Its a good game with nice beginning ...
but if you have to restart a level for about 50 times ... it really gets annoying!

I know you want this to be hard, but its really extreme on L48 (the shaking while i am on that spinning thing makes it impossible to target. Also the spin is too fast for me.

Well its just my opinion, but would be nice to get a bonuspower like "slowmotion" or sth. If you use this it will be counted and reduces your final score or sth ... but at least you dont get stucked in a level and give up - frustrated.


This game reminds me of lbp 2, expecially level 7 :DDD
