A homage to the arcade classic Robotron 2084. Rescue the hostages while blasting through waves of droids intent upon your destruction! Yes, the graphics and sounds are simpilstic, trying to favour gameplay rather than aesthetics. It's been play-tested but obviously feedback is good. Any bugs, please let me know!

UPDATE 12/Nov/2010 : V1.7 - Minor enemy distribution changes
UPDATE 12/Nov/2010 : **** PROGRESSION BUG FIXED!!!! ***** Now version 1.6
UPDATE 11/Nov/2010 : Bug that stops you progressing will be updated ASAP! thanks for the feedback!

IMPORTANT!!! For some reason, Mochi Live Updates seems to have a problem with cached content, so if the version number at the top-left of the menu screen isn't the latest, try clearing your cache.

Good times! Huge RoboTron fan

Dude, this is pretty damn fun. I enjoy this sort of game!

Now, my only complaint, really not much of one, is it would have been fun to be able to lock you shooting direction. However, your clever uses of the drawn arrow for shot direction and locking the direction to increments of 45 degrees was inspired!

Why, thank you very much! Glad you like the game :-)

additcive as hell

i love this resent flux of recent arcade games, even better now that they have todays power behind them... i wonder if i can reach a kill screen

Very retro!

This is a really great arcade-y game, I love how you stuck to the original game play of the original and the retro style graphics always tickle my fancy. Great job!


Great homage to one of my favorite arcade classics, Williams always produced some of the best stuff.

The bug is too bad but i'm happy you are working on it, the only other suggestion might be to add some different sprites for the 'humans'.

rated 5/5 and 9/10 which is for the bug...

digitaloranges responds:

Bug should now be fixed!

Not bad. There's a reason I don't play older games

Very much like the old Robotron. So much, so, that you even included the little bugs. Stage 17 always glitches for me and keeps me from moving forward. I have no idea why. But otherwise a very good homage.

digitaloranges responds:

Yup - will sort out that bug asap. Thanks for the review :-)
