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.

The Best game of my life


Rated 4 / 5 stars

This game is great, though I ran into the same problem as Lynxxxvi, where in the pattern editor, I couldn't use spacebar after a while and had to reload the page to get it to work. I also wish that you could customize the human's weapons to your liking rather than just being given a gun and flamethrower. Making the levels, in my opinion, is far more entertaining. Also, I believe some of the robots that you have to fight for the human mode are stupidly hard. For instance, there's one in the "Evil" category that I feel like I don't even need to specify due to it's stupid difficulty. But overall, the game is great, the controls are smooth (most of the time), the graphics are nice, and I'd love to see these couple of problems get fixed up.

Not as hard as it might seem at first. /610807/show/usergenerated/group/522/

Holly crud this is fun. building you own bot and setting a pattern. seeing everyone sonstraucts.. AND KILLING THEM! A lot of fun. I only have two issues, Music being one Heck I bet there a dozen audio segments on NG you could use to fix that. The second is lvl decor. I don'y mind the three options but I would likt to see A: A hazrd of some sort B: colors and C: style of level peices, like dirt or cave style.

Any one loong for a fun bot, find Plasma, boss lvl2 and Charge it first.

boss fights sucked because they were trigger happy with it also some of the desings were TERRIBLE! I thnk you should add an update where if you/someone else were to make a level you needed to test it and get votes for it and if you gt letssay 25 to 45 votes the leve will be approved and they will be added as boss/campiagn fights please add this I'm sure alot of people were suggesting the same thing.other than the trigger happy boss fights this was overall a good game. but only 4.5 because of trigger happy :)

fun, but while recording patterns i keep having problems toggling the exit. after a while of trying to record a pattern, spacebar wont open the exit anymore. i have to reload the page to get it to work again. please fix.
