Shoot Many Robots
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.

In Shoot Many Robots, you get the chance to... well, the title says it all. It is a fun game, as long as you play it in short sessions (no more than an hour). Also, it's more pleasurable when you play it in co-op. The customization part keeps your interest alive along the missions, as you'll strive to get all those wacky hats, backpacks and whatnot. All in all, it's a worthy game, even more if you find it discounted, when the price is just dirt cheap for what it offers.

Underrated Game, Please Play It!Plasros | June 18, 2013 | See all Plasros's reviews »
This title needs to be remembered in gaming history as a perfect example of a 2.5d side-scrolling shooter and remembered a second time as an example on how to modernize that genre. Shoot Many Robots is simply about the endless decimation of mechanical foes, that can come in many shapes and sizes, using a vast variety of weapons and worn equipment. I can go on about how the RPG mechanics were implemented flawlessly into this title, or how their effects made absolute sense to an action shooter, but what really drives the entire experience is the challenging, fast-paced, engrossing combat.
The Description has some errors, but nonetheless a good game.McDoenerKing | June 18, 2013 | See all McDoenerKing's reviews »
I bought this game, because it was advertised as having local coop support for up to two players: "4-Player Co-op Four players online and up to two players locally can work together to take down the robot armies."
Now I bought the game and installed it. When I first started the game I was searching for the option of local coop, but couldn't find it sadly. I then learned from the steam community, that it only supports local coop on the xbox360! So if you only want it for local coop do not buy it. Also there is no gamepad support unless you use software like xpadder.
Otherwise this game is pretty good! I already clocked several hours of fun with it. You are hunting items, shooting robots, collect stars, level your character up and try to beat insane eventually. It is light-hearted fun for the casual experience.
Besides the developers removing local coop and gamepad support, this game rocks nonetheless! Get it for its humor and the funny items you can collect through out the game. :)

"Shoot Many Robots" is a side-scrolling shooter, with cell-shading graphics, using cartoon-style graphics (funny), with effect in 2.5 D (despite being 2D, the action elements have depth and 3D features). You control a redneck, heavily armed, facing endless robots that have invaded the Earth, in scenarios reminiscent of the "Mad Max" future.
You use a primary (with infinite ammunition), a secondary weapon (limited ammunition, and more powerful), and melee blows in a frenetic action, with multiple enemies attacking at once, as your progresses in the stages, with a style reminiscent of Metal Slug (the developer company says the game is a mixture of "Borderlands meets Metal Slug").
The graphic highlights is on behalf of the scenarios, that I found interesting: however, the design of the characters is somewhat badly done (especially in close-up), and the enemies too, mainly because they are very simple and very similar to each other in design.
The sounds and music fit together, but I find them only average... the music repeats all the time, the sounds are generic and the voices are annoying voices.
The controls are easy, but I did not like the aiming, you point pressing the LT, but is pretty bad because it does not target always where you want, and to shoot, that to have to stay in place (no running and shooting). In the gameplay you jump over many obstacles, and slide across the floor going against wave after wave of enemies, with some sub-bosses and Bosses in the stage end.
