Robots can do a lot of things that humans just can’t. They can go places we can’t go. They can lift things we can’t lift. They also look awesome when pitted against one-another in combat, using their various interchangeable parts to create the ultimate robot fighter. That’s just what you get to create in Mixbots, a new card game that’s up on Kickstarter.
From the campaign:
If you ever wanted to build your own custom killer robots with special abilities and fight to the death with up to 9 other people, Mixbots will allow you to do just that. Each box comes with random robot parts for you to build three custom robot death machines. Combat is done using the time tested mechanism …wait for it… Rock Paper Scissors. Literally.
Two-player duel is awesome, but team battle is where this game shines. Health running low? Your teammate can heal you. Your opponent destroying you? Call for backup to fight him together, or switch opponents with a teammate and use a sniper to blast your opponent from a distance. Dead? Maybe a teammate can revive you. Feeling evil? Implant your opponent with a computer virus and watch their team destroy each other. Team battle shines like staring into your phone’s LED flashlight, but 10 vs 10 war is insane!
The Kickstarter campaign’s up and running now and is set to go for another 24 days.
