Robotz DX is an unashamedly old-school, single-screen shoot-em-up with strategic game play. Although simple in concept, it is a difficult game to beat; you will die many times before you master all 30 arenas - and even when you do conquer the game, it's randomly generated level layouts will provide a new challenge on every subsequent play-through.

Post news Report RSS Robotz DX - Version 1.02 Released!

Update released following several bug reports - hopefully this will address issues people have had with trying to use xpadder and joy2key with the game! Joypad support has been improved, and the game now supports both POV Hat and x/y axis methods for movement. As before, buttons can be configured within the ini file; a separate config program is being worked on for a future (and final?) release.

Screenshots of the game


Improved joypad support and fixed a bug that prevented joy2key and xpadder working with the game (whoops). Improved the .ini file system so that selected control config is automatically saved, and hiscore is recorded even if you quit mid-game. Also, reworked the tutorial code so that you can only not skip the intro on your very first play of the game (again this is saved in the .ini file). Fixed the windowed mode so that the game window can be hidden (previously it always stayed on top). Tweaked level 25 so that spawners don't appear in difficult to reach locations.

Control method is selected at title screen by pressing J. Default is keys (so xpadder users, etc. can now play the game). JOYA uses the POV hat for movement, JOYB uses x/y axis. Fire, strafe and pause buttons can be reassigned in the ini file after loading the game for the first time.

Nice! This news post made the front page! :D

For people downloading for the first time, you might want to check the readme.txt for full instructions and a playing guide; it might look like a simple game, but robotz is deceptively complex. ;)

If your eyes can't cope with reading old school text files, the info is also given in full here: Rgcd.co.uk
