Shoot Many Robots (NA)
Third party DRM: SteamThis game requires a free Steam account to play.
A 4-player co-op run-n-gun action shooter throws you into a tidal wave of degenerate robots with an array of weaponry that would make any shooter enthusiast proud.
Players take control of P. Walter Tugnut (The “P” stands for “Pickles”), a hillbilly who stockpiles guns, ammo, and beer in his dilapidated RV awaiting the inevitable robot apocalypse. When the abandoned factory in the distance begins producing robots on its own, Walter sets off in his RV on a robot-killing rampage, hoping to save humanity from an onslaught of robot hordes.
Run-n-Gun A classic 2.5D side-scrolling shooter, revitalized with modern game design.
4-Player Co-op Four players online and up to two players locally can work together to take down the robot armies.
Character Customization Players can equip Walter with countless combinations of items to tailor to their play style. Players also level up and gain XP by killing robots, which grants them access to new missions and equipment, as well as increase Walter’s damage and health.
Missions Push forward through robot territory in Traversal missions – huge levels that end in epic robot boss battles. Hunker down in Survival missions – claustrophobic levels where the only object is to outlast waves of robot hordes. For the truly hardcore, there are three difficulty modes to keep players hurting.
Diversified Combat Take two weapons with you into battle – but it's going to be a tough choice. Revolvers, rocket launchers, assault rifles, flamethrowers, SMGs, and shotguns all beg to be used, not to mention the freeze ray, gnome launcher, and a cat carrier that shoots an exploding robot decoy. With melee combat, players can (and should) punch robots to knock them back and inflict damage. Rockets shot by robots can also be punched, if timed correctly, back into their metal faces.
Nut Up, Gear Up, Power Up Nuts are dropped by robots when they are killed, and are used to buy new weapons and gear. Robots occasionally drop power-ups that temporarily grant superhuman powers. These power-ups can turn the tide and reward players for high combos.
Robots with Personality Numerous robots – from tiny chainsaw-wielding Choppers to gigantic fire-spewing Fatboys – all have unique personalities, AI, and unique ways to kill, with even fiercer models appearing as the difficulty ramps up.

I hop in my sweet RV, grab the gear I have and head out on the road to stop the massive invasion of robots before it’s too late. While battling the pesky pieces of scrap I come across many more weapons and gear to help me become more destructive and cause lots of more mayhem. This is my long mission of harder and harder destinations to save humanity and rid the world of worthless scrap metal.
Shoot Many Robots is a 2D shooter, with 4player co-op where you try to survive thousands of drive you crazy robots, while leveling up, collecting bolts to buy bigger and better weapons and gear to help you throughout this difficult task. There are three difficulties to make your way through which have an assortment of levels you earn a star rating. There is only a small variety in the stages in the whole game so you will be seeing the same scenery a lot but just under harder conditions. Stage types are get to the end of stage with only flag at end or some with a boss, and survival style where you go through rounds.
Graphics and design wise I really liked it. It was filled with humorous gear like a baby stroller that you carried on your back, a gun holster with no pants, or a space helmet. Each one had certain attributes to help or hurt you. Guns ranged between the standard fare of machine guns, flame throwers, pistols, and rocket launchers. You were able to equip a main weapon, secondary, head, backpack, and pants. This gives you lots of variety and can turn out pretty funny.
Gameplay was fantastic and very challenging. I made it through all the normal and hard difficulties but had to give up after a few insane levels since those are made for co-op play. There is no story to worry about just one you create. I only had two issues with this game which was the dead online community and no controller support. It takes some getting used to paying with keyboard & mouse.
I recommend playing this game as it can be a lot of fun especially if you have some friends to play it with. If you don’t own it yet you can find it pretty cheap quite often too so don’t miss out on this one.
