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.

Great game, very creative premise. Animation is top notch and well polished. The Raybot Editor is really what makes this game so cool, allowing the NG community to make their own boss fights. The various weapon options are well balanced for the most part, the mines are underpowered, and that vertical raybeam is overpowered. I really enjoy browsing the user creations, seeing what people have made and testing their routines... that is until total douches like epyk ruin the idea of the boss creator by posting like 10 pages in a row of penis(pl. peni?) and swatzikas. Wow. To all people that post penises and or swatzikas and think that it is cool or funny(or whatever attention seeking motives), what do you think that says about yourself to the world? Think about it. Not too hard because you will probably start thinking about more penis. I digress... so to Tom Fulp and Johnny Utah, it's stuff like this that make Newgrounds the gem that it is, you too Rice Pirate. I'm a big fan of a lot of the work you guys do. Please keep kickin ass.

the problem, at least in my opinion, is that you can't program a robot to be smart or have skill (at least not in a flash game). you can, however, program a robot to be a cheap-shotting bastard
