Robots have taken over, eradicated humanity and flattened the cities. The only men alive are 3 survivors on an space station. But hope is not lost. Humanity's genetic code has been saved in indestructible gene pods scattered across the 5 continents.

You must disguise yourself as a robot and beam down to collect the pods. But if the robots get too close they will see through your disguise. Defend yourself with the orbital laser. Destroyed robots will occasionally be reborn at one of the flashing creation points.

Each city will be harder than the last. Good luck.


Use arrow keys or WASD to move and mouse to shoot.

Hi, I'm running java version "1.5.0_09" and at launch an exception is thrown. It is a class version error. Is the jnlp indicating the correct required version?

The version problem should be fixed. It should run in 1.5+

I like the creative perspective of controlling the robot and the satellite laser. Great idea for a small game. I love it.

Update: the game should be a bit more challenging now as the robots can respawn, at a maximum of 1 robot every 2 seconds. There are 4 respawn points towards the corners - they all flash when it happens. So the robots now have 360 degree movement, or else they'd all be moving along the same lines. Which means you can now outrun them along diagonals.

Excellent update. It's a lot more fun, and it's scarier!
