McDROID is a surreal Action Tower Defense with
- mega frikkin' lasers that talk
- upgradable robots
- Gattling turret
- crop and monsters that mutate
- an economy based on giant strawberries.
- levels hand crafted like they used be.
- Cute cartoony Borderland graphics, but it's hella tough so you may have to co-op with your friends to take down that insane Mutatosaurus.
Imagine the hectic big boss fights of RTYPE combined with the smarts and resource management of Dune 2. That's McDROID, our first game, made in homage of these awesome classics.
It's original, with gorgeous cell shaded graphics, boasts 100 enemies on screen at once, the most badass weapons (linking teslas, wave canons, bot factories...) and unusually challenging enemies.
It's a tough game, not for the faint of heart and it's got co-op multiplayer.
We've just added a new level and unlocked the Tesla Coil and Shuttle Bliss Engine. Plus tons of network optimizations and switch to new server make for faster and more stable co-op. Also new forum and a Bestiary.

In this monster update we added our first new level, we call it "Lost Little Robot" and it is very different from the others so we are curious to hear your feedback.
In "Lost Little Robot" you get jettisoned by your shuttle-with-no-name because it's caught a cold.
While you make your way back, you reinforce a damaged base with a multi-purpose tesloid Bot Factory Tesloids mini bots, you repair a repair module and ... you pickup a new weapon : the Uber powerful Tesla Mk4.
That is one hell of a beast! It may be short ranged but it packs a serious punch: each of its 4 static cores shoots two bolts and each bolt leaps from monster to monster 3 times. Oh and since you also get Tesla tech, build a few of them and see them link up together and amplifying each other. So what's the catch you may ask ? They're expensive, so better get that farming going!
In addition to this new level we have a Bestiary : look at your creatures and read their not-so-scientific descriptions.
Also Massive network optimization, no more barfing the player out, faster server - it's a real bug-a-death-a-ton festival. Oh, and ... a new flame decal.
And finally we opened our new forum Game.mcdroidgame.com and we are starting to read some interesting discussions about strategy in McDROID.
See you soon on Planet M !
