Shoot Many Robots can be played with 1-4 people cooperatively online. If you don’t already have an excuse to make three friends and kill some robots, we’ve provided five:
More, More, More
With more players, everything gets multiplied. More robots, explosions and chaos. The number of robots in each level is increased, which means more things to kill, and more ways to kill them. With more robots dying, you are earning more nuts, which allow you to buy more guns and gear. All of the randomly dropping items like powerups and loot also drop more frequently. Everything is just plain more fun.
At the end of each mission, the players with the highest kill counts are rewarded with more nuts. This means you must work cooperatively to complete a mission, while also competing for the most kills – hence, “co-opetition.”
In co-op, you can revive your partners if they are downed. Having squad mates to keep each other alive will help you get through the more challenging robot battles.
You can equip anything from a tutu to a shark fin, jetpack, tighty whities, and a grenade launcher (to name a few of the hundreds available), and each affects your character’s stats differently. The real strategic fun starts when you learn to co-ordinate your getup to complement your squad mates for lethal weapon combos like ‘fire & ice’, where one player slows the robots with a freeze ray while the other annihilates them with a flamethrower and a raccoon hat that boosts critical hit chance.
The best reason to play with friends is for the games you can make up outside of Shoot Many Robots. Every time you have to drink to gain health in-game, you have to drink in real life. The player with the lowest kill count at the end of each mission has to wear a tutu… in real life. Get creative, and have fun killing robots with your friends!
