Bots Are Stupid is an ultra-precise programming-platformer

By - | Views: 22,977

Up for a challenge and love programming? Well it seems that Bots Are Stupid might be a good fit for you. An ultra-precise platformer where you don't directly control things — what could possibly go wrong?

The developer said to think of it a bit like Mario Maker meets coding. I must admit, it sounds pretty fun. With 40 challenging ready-made levels, plus the ability to make and share your own levels to twist the brains of others. It's not just a case of making them move around, you also have to deal with grappling hooks, speed boosters and all sorts of obstacles that will crush your little bots into tiny pieces.

I feel like I'd have more fun giving the bots spectacularly wrong instructions.

Looks cool to try, but it won't launch for me. :(
