Rocket Bot Royale
Tanks are very complex vehicles, but video games make them far easier to control and way more enjoyable, as you can see in Rocket Bot Royale. Although the ones in the game are not technically tanks, they're robots or bots that you and other players are controlling. This is nice because that means you can unleash a bunch of destructive power without hurting anyone. The robotic tanks and the uninhabited environments go together well in these explosive battles that have you launching all sorts of ammo and even yourself around the field which has some interesting rules of gravity in play.
About Rocket Bot Royale
The royale style of game may be slowing down a bit but it remains highly popular, especially when it's designed to run smoothly. This game is all about strong processing and quick feedback so that you know exactly what you're doing and what's going on. This is very important since the more players there are, the more explosions you'll have to navigate when everyone is launching themselves all over the field. If you can keep track of your position, you can lay out a path to a triumphant victory or at the very least you'll explode in a spectacular fashion.
How to Play
Rocket Bot Royale is a 2D battle royale game involving robot tanks that are controlled with both the mouse and keyboard.
- Cursor - Aim Cannon
- Left Mouse Button - Fire Cannon
- A/Left Arrow - Move Left
- D/Right Arrow - Move Right
- Num. Keys - Cycle Through Weapons
The goal of each game is to eliminate other players until you're one of the victors. Your tank moves at a steady pace across the field and can climb anything as long as it's not too steep. There are bodies of water that need to be avoided at all costs. There are also floating pieces of land that each have their own personal gravity. In order to reach these lands, point your cannon at the ground and fire to launch yourself onto it.
When you encounter an enemy tank, you can attempt to take it out with your weapons. Your standard cannon has infinite rockets that need time to reload after each shot, but three can be fired in rapid succession before you're out. Each player has a health bar that appears above their positions, but landing a direct hit on an enemy will deal heavy damage or eliminate them but the same works against you. If you're hit, you'll be destroyed and have to respawn or enter a new match. You can also find additional weapons scattered around the field which have limited ammo but differing effects.
By playing, you can achieve goals that will earn you Gold and Gems. Both can be used on the Main Menu to visit the shops where you can buy crates that grant you random items or cosmetics for your tank. These include giving your tank new Badges, Skins, Parachutes, and Trails.
Tips and Tricks
This game operates on Worms physics where the environment is destructible and weapons will destroy the land in a spherical pattern. You can use this to shape the environment to your advantage and prevent opponents from ambushing you. You're most vulnerable when you're on the floating lands so be cautious when navigating them.
