From Laminar Research, the developer that brought us X-Plane, we now present Giant Fighting Robots! We said, GIANT. FIGHTING. ROBOTS!

The premise is simple:

Aliens have invaded our outer colonies with no warning, and we are madly trying to raise a defense as our outposts fail, scrounging up anything we can do defend ourselves with.

You will command an All Terrain Attack Walker, or ATAW ... They are calling them Giant Fighting Robots' in the press now.

The controls ... well, if you've played X-Plane, you'll be used to things here. You have a throttle for going forward and backward, and tilt the phone to steer. Arm your weapons and fire away.

As you'll see in our video, the graphics aren't 100 percent, the sounds are simple and the gameplay is a bit rudimentary. But with a name like GIANT FIGHTING ROBOTS (OK, the all-caps are our doing), we just couldn't pass it up. The game's $1.99 in the Android Market, and we've got download links after the break.

Android Quick App: Giant Fighting Robots


This is an affront to science. Robotfighting apps should be banned. I hope PETR speaks out against this.

I agree.
Nah, who am I kidding. I just can't bring myself to stop being a hypocrite like Phil and only dislike the unpopular games and cry on how we should ban one kind of game while preaching about openess in other areas of the site!

But in all seriousness, I've lost a lot of respect for Phil.
You can't claim to be an objective journalists just to turn around and bash on an app or game just because of your personal ideals.
