Martians Vs. Robots Released
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Tommy Twisters, a developer of computer games and children's books, has released their latest creation: Martians Vs. Robots. The arcade game takes the basic shoot'em up action of Asteroids and combines it with strategic planning and multiplayer options. It is now available from the company website as a digital download for all major operating systems (Mac, Windows, and Linux). Players can choose to play the side of the stealthy and technologically advanced Martians, or the Earthling-created Robots, guilty of wiping out the human race.

Martians Vs. Robots' multiplayer mode delivers a combination of arcade game play with a mix of strategy and planning.  Players work together by gathering resources and researching new weapons and ships while battling around asteroids, gravity wells, and other spacial anomalies. Other multiplayer gameplay options include classic deathmatch, team deathmatch, capture the core, and gauntlet. Also included is a single player arcade mode where players take on the role of Martians, trying to gather our solar system's remaining resources before the Robots.  Players can research new technologies and build more ships to propel themselves to victory and limit the reach of the robotic menace.

Who could have believed it? The Earthlings invented a race of robots and wiped themselves out! Now the Martians are the only ones left in our solar system that can clean up the mess. They better hurry though, because the Robots are growing fast and consuming all the crystal ore to be found! It’s a race for resources! And no matter how well the Martians were able to hide from the humans, a confrontation with the Robots is inevitable!

Game Features:
• Classic Asteroids style single player arcade mode
• LAN or Internet Multiplayer (supports up to 24 players at a time)
• Randomly generated maps
• Build your own custom maps and share them!
• Full technology trees for each side that your team can research together
