Shoot Many Robots video preview three levels of half Metal Slug, half Borderlands chaos

Gameplay and creator commentary with the XBLA, PSN and PC run ‘n gun shooter

When Gears of War creator Cliffy B is so taken with your game he invents a new nickname to describe it, you’re probably on to something special. Shoot Many Robots is the real (and rather awesome) title, but with chaotic side-scrolling run-‘n-gun action that’s clearly inspired by Metal Slug, and metal-massacring co-op that’s definitely reminiscent of Borderlands, the alias “Border Slug” fits pretty well too.

How do the two styles mix? And how are a freeze ray, gnome launcher and “impending baldness” involved? We played through three levels of Shoot Many Robots with the developers at Demiurge Studios, and recorded the whole explosively silly thing…

Shoot Many Robots releases early next year on XBLA, PSN and PC.
