About This Game
You've been challenged to a fight, and the robots are waiting. Do you pick a Ray 01 body and equip it with a Wyvern gun and Burrow bomb P, or do you opt for a Javelin with Satellite pod and Feather legs? Custom Robo lets you and up to three friends customize robots with nearly 200 unique parts, then turns you loose in a virtual battlefield to prove who's the top robot commander.
- It's multiplayer combat of the future! Up to four players can pit their own unique robots against one another in third-person, single-screen mechanical mayhem.
- Parts, parts and more parts! Mix and match body types, guns, bombs, pods and legs to come up with the ultimate fighting machine. Battle modes are varied, too. Players can have one-on-one or two-on-two fights, team up for Tag-Team Battles and one-on-two brawls, or pull out all the stops in three- or four-player Battles Royal.
- Players can also immerse themselves in the single-player RPG tutorial mode, where they can unlock new parts, gain strategy hints and bring down the mysterious crime syndicate known as Z.
Game Storyline: Custom Robo is set in the not-so-distant future, where mankind solves conflicts by battling customized robots on virtual battlefields known as holosseums. In the arcade and versus modes, players will choose robots, check out information on opponents and holosseums, then customize their robots to maximize their chances of winning.
In the single-player mode, players take on the role of a young man trying to honor the wish of his deceased father by becoming a robo commander. He joins a down-and-out bounty hunter firm and, surrounded by a crew of misfits, sets off on an adventure that not only tests his resolve but teaches him the value off friendship and family.
Characters: The robots take center stage in Custom Robo. There are more than 30 body types and hundreds of parts players can use to alter their appearances and abilities. Choose from all-around Shining Fighter models, powerful Metal Grapplers, hard-to-catch Stealth Vanishers, sky-soaring Trick Flyers and many, many more.
How to progress through the game: Players select the robots they want to use, customize them with the parts available and battle away. The single-player RPG tutorial sends players from battle to battle, where they learn helpful fighting tips and unlock new parts for use throughout the game.
Special powers/weapons/moves/features: The game has nearly 200 unique parts and robots.
