Robot Battle Game For Windows 8: Robotek

Robotek is a free robot battle game for Windows 8 and Windows 8.1. In the game, your sole motive is to defeat the opponent robot. The game has amazing graphics, and incredibly smooth gameplay effects. The background of the game is animated, and gives it a feel that the game is something straight from the future. In the game, you have to select your moves via the rotating slot machine by taking it for a spin. When the wheels of the slots are spun, you will be provided with three different moves when the wheels stop. The three moves translate to the actions that your robot will perform to beat the opponent. The concept might sound a bit complex, but actually it’s pretty easy to comprehend once you get the grasp of it.
