It looks like Shoot Many Robots, Demiurge Studios' straightforwardly titled, Metal Slug-like robot slaughterfest, has finally made its way to mobile devices. Well, Android devices, at least — though an iOS version is on its way.
Owlchemy Labs, the folks behind 2011's cuddly physics-based game Snuggle Truck, also helped Demiurge out with the new title's development.
Here's the press release:
Demiurge Studios is proud to announce that the first game in its mobile publishing initiative, Shoot Many Robots, is now available for download on Android devices, with a planned iOS release coming soon! Expanding Demiurge's hit Shoot Many Robots franchise, this "endless gunner" delivers exciting new gameplay, pitting P. Walter Tugnut against bazillions of chainsaw-wielding robots. Developed in collaboration with Boston-based Owlchemy Labs, the creators of Snuggle Truck and Jack Lumber, players can Shoot Many Robots on-the-go right now by downloading the game for free from the Google Play Store.

Full of explosive, robot-crushing action, Shoot Many Robots mobile has you playing as P. Walter Tugnut, who has been stock-piling guns, ammo and beer awaiting the inevitable robot apocalypse. Jettisoned from his RV, Walter barrels through farmlands and oil fields switching from lane-to-lane, while gunning down robots and picking up nuts along the way. Players build an arsenal of robot-annihilating weaponry like flamethrowers, rocket launchers, and freeze rays, while earning absurd hats to unlock special abilities.
"Last year Demiurge Studios set out to provide fellow robot-haters with a whole new way to demolish robots — what resulted is this super-addictive endless runner (and gunner) that we are excited to turn over to the mobile masses today," said Albert Reed, CEO and co-founder of Demiurge Studios. "It's a simple, pick-up-and-play kind of game with unique features never before seen in an endless runner. Plus, it will make the world a better place."
"Joining forces with Demiurge Studios has proven to be a scientific breakthrough," said Alex Schwartz, Chief Scientist of Owlchemy Labs. "Through the combined efforts of the Owlchemy scientists and the Demiurge team, we have created an awesome game that takes endless runners to a new level with our lane-switching mechanic, along with robust 3D environments, HD graphics, simple controls, and tons of action!"
