About Shoot Many Robots
Shoot Many Robots is a 4-player co-op, run-n’-gun action shooter. Published by Ubisoft, it’s Demiurge Studios’ first original title, and it’s available for digital download on Xbox Live Arcade, PlayStation Network, and PC.
The game stars P. Walter Tugnut, a lovable hillbilly who’s been stock-piling his RV with guns, ammo, and beer awaiting the robot apocalypse. In case you’re wondering, the “P” stands for “Pickles” - but don’t call him that.
4 Player Online Co-op
You and three friends can take on the robot armies together, but you’re also fighting each other in what we call “co-opetition”. You need to work together to defeat the hordes of robots, but you’re also competing for the best performance, since at the end of every mission each player is awarded nuts based on how many robots they killed.
Guns & Gear
Equipping items (like a tutu) affect Walter’s attributes, and some even give him special abilities. Using nuts dropped from dead robots, you can buy bigger guns and better gear - of which there are hundreds to unlock!
Killing robots gives you XP, XP makes you stronger, and the stronger you are, the more robots you can kill. It’s all one big cycle of robot murder.
From tiny chainsaw-wielding Choppers to gigantic fire-spewing Fatboys, there are many robots to shoot - in quantity and variety. And each robot type has multiple models, each getting increasingly fierce as the difficulty ramps up. Meet the enemy:
The Chopper robot is equipped with a large chainsaw and would like nothing more than to chop you in half. This guy’s usually seen in large hordes.
Tankbot shoots rockets and missiles at you from a safe distance. What it wasn’t counting on was you being able to punch those rockets back at its metallic face.
Hummer is a jittery, violent mess. It buzzes above you like a pesky gnat… a gnat that shoots rockets.
Small Fry is a tiny robot commandeering a large gorilla robot suit. Watch out - if you get close, he’ll snatch you up and hurl you away!
Six Pack is a robot party bus, run by a chain-smoking robot conductor that kinda looks like a mailbox. Six Pack spews robot hordes, so take him down before he unleashes the party.
Fatboy has acid reflux issues, spewing oil and fire all over the ground. Someone needs to tell him to lay off the Cajun fries - maybe he’d lose the first half of his nickname too.
This ain’t your momma’s Zeppelin. Gasbag is equipped with tons of rockets, and likes to help out his buddy Six Pack, hoisting him onto the battlefield when you least expect it.
Hot Rod gets his name for the giant Gatling gun mounted atop his core. Don’t stay in any one place for too long around him, or suffer a barrage of bullets.
This subterranean bot bursts out of the ground and unloads its arsenal. Don’t let him catch you off guard!
