R-TYPE made a baby with Plant vs Zombies and called it McDROID ... An old school hard-as-nail "ARCADE TOWER DEFENSE" where you play a little robots who heals PLANET, protects obnoxious big brother SHUTTLE, farms, loots, does weird science and plays with that WAVE CANON...

Thanksgiving 2016 announcement: upcoming DLC


Ladies and Gentlemen,

I know I was saying Souls was the last update but there was something bothering me. See, back in 2014 and 2015 I made several levels for the players who were good to us and bought the game early, I gave these levels for free. The levels ranged from wacky experiment to intricate new gameplay mechanic.

Now some people have been asking for new levels so I've decided to make those bonus levels accessible to everyone. But that wouldn't be fair to the early adopters so I'll make these levels a DLC instead - and in the process make some money to buy some more trees (real life trees)

The DLC will include:

  1. The mega level "Thriller Night" where you herd survivors of a meteor crash away from zombies and skeletons, oh and convert Zombie MJ back to being his awesome self.
  2. "Thanks Giving" with the mega turkeys laying eggs
  3. "Christmas" where you take Santa on a leach, using his mega attack and pulling him out of harm's way.
  4. "Gelatinous Cub Deity" giant level with giant gummy bear
  5. I'll also made a special hat that increases your firepower, armor and speed, I call this hat... "The Unicorn Hat" and it shoots rainbows (well worth $1.99)

    I'm thinking of launching this DLC at $1.99 with a special introduction price of $0.99 for the first week and every early adopters who had one of the bonus levels get the full DLC for free.

    What do you guys think?

MCDROID SOULS (ソウル)


Hello everyone!

This is the final update!
It's got Japanese language - FINALLY!! Thanks Greener to that (Since I don't read Japanese he might have added pranks in there.)

A few players were complaining that the game had become too easy so I added difficulty "SOULS" and this is the new default. Beating level 13 in SOULS took me 7 tries when normally I finish it glancing at the screen every now and then, beating this level was very gratifying so I added an achievement for it. SOULS difficulty also triples the score.

Some balancing was also done to make the game feel more punchy, also many bugs were shown the door and I even threw in some optimizations which make it run roughly 16.7% faster on my old macbook.

What else, oh yes: level 1 is much more fun by giving an early taste of what 80 monsters feel like and for good measure I left a few repairable "Wave Canons", for you R-TYPE lovers - hold the button to charge, then release, charge is twice as fast on the grass.
I also fixed a few levels, like the 13-arena is now playable past wave 10, which is good for an infinity level.

That's it, I hope you'll enjoy :)

Final update you said, so what's next? Farming (IRL) and tinkering with AI. A few people have asked me to make another game in the McDROID world. Vote here for the next game!

About This Game


Story: McDROID returns home to Planet M and finds this message from SOMANTO corp...

Welcome back to your home planet. In your farming and survival pack you get:
  • One (1) Modular Combine Droid (McDROID)
  • A story campaign where each level uncovers a new game mechanic and research blueprint, and where you heal a planet.
  • Each level has 3 difficulty, CHALLENGE continues where you left off in NORMAL with all the turrets that survived.
  • Enemies drop corpses which debuff and damage your turrets. Gotta clean up behind yourself! (for extra loot)
  • Trees to heal the planet (and buff your weapons and crops production)
  • A variety of researchable giant talking weapons that you can carry and shoot around like a 3rd person shooter.
  • A multi weapon rail to turn into a very powerful machine of peace.
  • One unicorn skin and one skull skin (find them scattered about)
  • Deployable base mount
  • Tesla turrets that you can chain together a-la CnC Red Alert
  • Economy based on McDiamonds and giant strawberries because it's the future.
  • Factories that builds robots (that buid miniatures of factories?)
  • Mutators that will turn your crop into Bomb Trees (not good for harvest).
  • Cute cartoony Borderland gfx
  • Hand Crafted levels that change with how many trees your plant.
  • Drop in/Drop out Co-Op: because that Mutatosaurus is just too much for you. Cloud save. Persistent base and other technologies from the 21st century.
  • Hard as nail Survival Levels with persistence: your towers and economy stay with you from death to death, but also bomb trees, unfortunately.
  • Persistent Research. Do you focus on improving your lasers first or branch out into bliss engine as you climb through the research trees?
  • Drop in/Drop out Co-Op: if you're overwhelmed in single campaign, have some robot-buddies join you.
  • Persistent base building: Complete a level on Normal and you can play on in Challenge and Nightmare modes. Your base and economy will carry over but will have to withstand much deadlier attacks!
  • Not 40s, not 50s, not 80s but 60 rock!
  • Achievements awarded for tasks ranging from silly to tricky.
  • Supports Xbox 360 controller
