Version of classic arcade game Robotron 2084. Fast, furious and addictive gameplay. Uses most of the sounds and graphics from the original game!

"Uses most of the sounds and graphics from the original game" not a very good advert matey

It's a good idea to use old graphics so they can be recognised in the new game and if they are good anyway what's the point in changing them?

Looks like the link is wrong. Manually type www.english-gent.supanet.com/robotron.zip and this will work! Re: Comment from Canazza...point taken but the whole idea of a retro game is that you want it to be as near as possible to the original game (thanks David Evans!) If you can do that in TGF then it must be worth a download.

AWESOME game! I love it! Almost exactly like the original! My only suggestion: make a set of rapid fire keys that fire in the direction you're pressing. Like on the numpad if you press '4' it shoots left, '7' is diagonal up/left, 8 is up, etc.

Thanks for comment Chrisbo! One problem with your suggestion...it makes the game too difficult! Using 4 arrow keys as well as 4 direction fire keys...phew! Unless you are an octopus..it cannot be done. Retro Note - The original arcade game had 2 joysticks 1 for move and the other for fire...now you know why! Keep Retro games Alive!
