Insane Robots - Playniac


We've been continuing to add new multiplayer modes to Insane Robots, and our newBare Knuckle mode brings a gloves-off play style to local and friends two-player battles with no augments added to robots



Recently launched Best of Three mode brings fiercer competition and longer duels to local and friends two-player battles. Slog it out over three battles, to see who is the true Insane Robots master.



Max the Cash mode has two 1v1 battles where winning the battle is not everything. You need to use runs of damage, overkill, cash tokens, and chains to maximise your score over two battles. (You can find out more about all of those with the new Deck Info feature.) This mode makes for a much more strategic 1v1 challenge.

Together with the original Quick Battle mode, where you play one decider battle, there are now four ways to play in your local and friends 2P Insane Robots battles! We'll keep adding more modes, so watch this space...

Insane Robots' latest update brings:

NEW! Local and friends multiplayer mode, Bare Knuckle.



NEW! Team Status mini-panel in the single-player campaign that indicates your team's readiness for the final challenging Insane Robots tournament.



Also, you might notice that for the latest release of Insane Robots we've switched to a new numbering system that, technically, more correctly represents these updates. Now minor fixes between updates will be indicated by a change to the final digit.

Insane Robots V1.0.9, out NOW, brings a load of new features, as well as improvements to the two awesome new difficulty modes released recently.

TRICKSY MODE increases the rate of progression and difficulty with faster unlocks, tougher AIs, higher health cost and more challenging hazards. You can switch it on or off at any time.



ROBO-SLAYER MODE is unlocked after the entire single-player campaign has been completed, and gives super-tough difficulty plus robots that are reset back to bare metal when they die. WARNING: No one has yet completed the game in this mode. We also carried out a major reworking and tuning of all enemy AIs to support the above modes.



Brand new local and friends multiplayer mode MAX THE CASH brings deeper strategy. It's all about getting the most in-battle cash via cash tokens, big attacks, overkill, and chains - so it's about more than just killing your opponent;



Mode select panel for local and friends multiplayer lets you pick between QUICK BATTLE or MAX THE CASH 2P modes. You'll see there are some more multiplayer modes coming soon;

A NEW robot select panel lets you play against AIs using any robots you have unlocked, including from DLC purchases, Season Pass, Deluxe Edition, multiplayer rank, friends battles, and 1P campaign progression;

A NEW lock icon on battle robot pedestals so you always know if your opponent has a locked slot, so if you missed them playing a lock token it's OK (community requested feature);

A NEW equipped item icon in shop's sell panel, so you know if you are selling an item you are currently using (community requested feature);

Online multiplayer robot unlocks are now easier as they occur at lower ranks: 3, 6, 9, etc., 29, 33

Online friends robot unlocks are now easier as they occur at lower friend counts: 1, 3, 5, 7

All this and more in Insane Robots V1.0.9!!!
