Robot Rumble 2.0 is an awesome Robot Wars/BattleBots TV show style robot battling game where you can build and customize your own combat robot and test your mettle (and your metal) in the arena.
If you’ve ever enjoyed watching robot combat shows like Robot Wars or BattleBots then you’ll get a real kick out of Robot Rumble 2.0. It allows you to create and take control of all manner of different types of robots in different hazard filled arenas, with you attempting to either incapacitate your opponent, flip them out the arena or drop them down a pit.
The devs are aiming to have battles with up to 6 robots in the arena at a time (which may be in the Beta) but in the current Alpha battles are limited to 1v1 against AI or in local multiplayer. In the Alpha build there are nine playable robots (most of which are officially licensed versions of real-life bots) and four different arenas to do battle in. It allows you to control a variety of different styles of robot, with an assortment of different weaponry – including spikes, flails, spinners, wedges and flippers. You can also build and test your very own robot, but you can’t actually take it into the arena at the moment (hopefully in the upcoming Beta though).
The current Alpha build of Robot Rumble 2.0 is a few months old, but it’s a very impressive game, with realistic physics, authentic looking arenas, a nice assortment of robots and an intuitive robot building interface. The Beta should be even better and crucially, allow you to use your custom build robots in the arena – which is going to be a whole lot of fun. Sign up for the Beta to join in the Robot Rumble!
