Full of explosive, robot-crushing action, Shoot Many Robots mobile has you playing as P. Walter Tugnut, who has been stock-piling guns, ammo and beer awaiting the inevitable robot apocalypse. Jettisoned from his RV, Walter barrels through farmlands and oil fields switching from lane-to-lane, while gunning down robots and picking up nuts along the way. Players build an arsenal of robot-annihilating weaponry like flamethrowers, rocket launchers, and freeze rays, while earning absurd hats to unlock special abilities.
“Last year Demiurge Studios set out to provide fellow robot-haters with a whole new way to demolish robots – what resulted is this super-addictive endless runner (and gunner) that we are excited to turn over to the mobile masses today,” said Albert Reed, CEO and co-founder of Demiurge Studios. “It’s a simple, pick-up-and-play kind of game with unique features never before seen in an endless runner. Plus, it will make the world a better place.”
“Joining forces with Demiurge Studios has proven to be a scientific breakthrough,” said Alex Schwartz, Chief Scientist of Owlchemy Labs. “Through the combined efforts of the Owlchemy scientists and the Demiurge team, we have created an awesome game that takes endless runners to a new level with our lane-switching mechanic, along with robust 3D environments, HD graphics, simple controls, and tons of action!”
Shoot Many Robots is available now on Android devices and will also release on iOS in the near future. For more information, visit www.ShootManyRobots.com. Follow us on Twitter at @ShootManyRobots and like us on Facebook at www.Facebook.com/ShootManyRobots.com.
