In this post, I will describe our free robot fighting game, Ironkill which is available for Android and iOS. Ironkill is an action packed, metal pounding robot fighting game where you can build your robots and defeat champions across territories while you play.
The Ironkill Story
In early 21st century, robotics technology was used extensively and fully functional robots were developed. Initially robots were used just for household activities and for weather monitoring. Sooner than you think, robots were everywhere. They made their way in our homes, shops, train stations and even in our streets. Robotics Industries started to build them in assembly lines and they quickly became popular. Who wouldn’t like robots? They are never tired, never complained about anything and are always ready to help. Then, there was this devastating Wildfire in California which was getting out of control. Robots came to the rescue. They got people out of the harm’s way and saved billions of dollars worth of property. Earlier they were just tools to make life simpler. Now, they were heroes. Due to this incident practical applications of robots increased exponentially and superior robots were developed. Soon, robot fighting contests gained popularity. It was an unsanctioned and illegal sport. The sport itself was called – Ironkill.
Not everyone considered robots as heroes. Some people thought they would one day turn on us and take control. However, fate, it seems, is not without a sense of irony. In 2030, colossal asteroids known as “The God Hammer” struck in the mid Atlantic. It was as if someone took a gigantic hammer and had a go at the Earth with intense fury. Water rose to catastrophic proportions and the world was washed away. In the aftermath of the deluge, robots again came to the rescue. They took people out of the debris, protected them from other people and helped in rebuilding what we could from the ruins.
God Hammer changed everything. There was shortage of food and water. The World became a cold and dark place. From that darkness emerged bandits and raiders who plagued the survivor settlements. Life was difficult in the new world. The only thing that didn’t change was the attitude of the robots. They fought with the looters and the raiders and protected the settlements. Thus, peace was restored by the robots and Ironkill leagues were formed around every settlement. A settlement which had a decent Ironkill robot fighter was considered safe. Soon, the survivor settlements started linking up. People started trading goods and other items. When a dispute arose, it was resolved by the robots by using the Ironkill league rules. By the time the world was connected again, there were three power blocs – Greater Asia, The African Union and The Americas.
Here are the Ironkill champions from Greater Asia, The African Union and The Americas:

Originally a general humanoid service robot from Dortmund Industries, Sandman was fully customized with glowing LED eyes and other custom body work.
