Insane Robots ( is a quirky, “rogue-lite” 2D strategy game where you battle for survival with token-based skirmishes in random-generated arenas. Each tournament brings tales of loyalty and betrayal; cold logic and insane risk. Discover branching, reactive stories; strange and rare augments; special boosts that bring surprising twists to battles; dynamic hazards like the acid cloud or ring of death; and deadly enemy robots ready to fight you and each other. Only a cunning player can survive the tournaments, unlock enough memory fragments and overthrow the Kernel and to discover the terrible truth at the heart of Insane Robots.
