Robot Unicorn Attack is a sidescrollingplatform game in which the user controls the movement of a roboticunicorn in a manner similar to Canabalt, a game released in 2009.[2] The object of the game is to prolong gameplay without falling off the stage, crashing into the edges of platforms, or colliding with crystal stars (without first dashing). Points are earned with play time, by collecting pixies, and by destroying crystal stars by dashing through them. As the game progresses, the stage slides faster. Jumps and dashes can be chained together while the unicorn is airborne. The player has three lives (referred to as 'wishes'), and the sum of the scores from each life count for the player's final score.

Merchandise and ports[edit]

Due to the game's popularity, Adult Swim released Robot Unicorn Attack T-shirt;[3][4] this was the first time Adult Swim had released game-related merchandise.[citation needed] In June 2010, it was released for iOS,[5] and in August, the game was released on Facebook,[6] making it the first time an Adult Swim game had been ported to Facebook.[citation needed] In the following month, a Robot Unicorn Attackhoodie became available.[citation needed] In October, a high-definition version of Robot Unicorn Attack was released for the iPad.[citation needed] On April 19, 2011, the game was released for Android.[citation needed]

Other versions[edit]

Heavy Metal[edit]

In October 2010, Adult Swim Games released Robot Unicorn Attack: Heavy Metal, an alternate version of the game featuring different visuals and music, for iPhone,[7] later publishing it to Adultswim.com as well on November 19, 2010.[citation needed] The game features the song 'Battlefield' from German power metal band Blind Guardian.[citation needed] The game's presentation is influenced by depictions of Hell as well as glam metal.[original research?] It received an even better score on their website than the original.[citation needed] In January 2011, Robot Unicorn Attack: Heavy Metal was made available on Facebook alongside its original counterpart, as a single application.[citation needed]

Christmas Edition[edit]

On November 23, 2010 Adult Swim released a Christmas-themed version of Robot Unicorn Attack on iTunes,[8][9] entitled Robot Unicorn Attack: Christmas Edition. The game features 'Christmas Time (Don't Let the Bells End)' by The Darkness.[10]Robot Unicorn Attack: Christmas Edition was released on Adultswim.com in November 2011,[11] despite reports to the contrary.[12]

Evolution[edit]

Robot Unicorn Attack Evolution plays identically to the original, but after three stars are broken in a row (four in a row in the Facebook version), the Robot Unicorn evolves into other robotic creatures. There are also multiple fairies per platform. In the Facebook version, the player must keep breaking stars in order to transform to the next animal; missing a star will cause the animal to revert to the unicorn.[citation needed]

Retro Unicorn Attack[edit]

Retro Unicorn Attack, a version of the game styled after popular video games in the 8-bit era, was released in 2013.[citation needed]

Sequel[edit]

A sequel titled Robot Unicorn Attack 2 was developed by PikPok and released on iOS on April 25, 2013, and Android on July 12, 2013.[citation needed]This sequel expands upon the original's template by adding new maneuvers like the 'Rainbow Savior' and 'Gallow's Gallop.' It also introduces enemies, missions, and the option to customise your unicorn's appearance.[13] The game also introduces the ability to fly by equipping wings that can be unlocked in-game. The core gameplay and controls remain the same as in the original browser game, but the game also adds a number of new features.[original research?] The player can collect teardrops that can be used to customize their character. Missions can be completed to unlock new content and abilities. The game also adds enemies, including giant golems. Egyptian- and medieval-themed unicorns were introduced in an update, as well as the new threat of solar geysers.[citation needed]The visuals also received a makeover. The unicorn itself is much more detailed and fluid, and the painted backgrounds also have much more depth and detail.[14] The newest update introduced a Celestial Unicorn, as well as a new Lava course available for purchase with real-world currency.[citation needed]

This is the first Robot Unicorn Attack to include in-game purchases; the player can buy credits to upgrade his or her unicorn and additional sound-packs.[citation needed]Erasure's seminal song 'Always' – which was a main part of the original game – is not part of the default package and must be purchased separately for $0.99.[15] 'I will never be able to separate Always from Robot Unicorn Attack,' wrote Kieron Gillen in 2010. 'I can't even imagine wanting to do such a thing. It'd be like decapitating the Mona Lisa. It merges with the sparkles of sound effects and the explosions of light and makes it complete.'[citation needed] The song is not included with the base game due to copyright, and as Adult Swim wanted the game to be free-to-play, it was made into an in-game purchase.[citation needed] Other songs by such bands as Blind Guardian, Slade, Limahl, and Corey Hart are also available for purchase.[citation needed]

Parodies[edit]

Combining the game with the internet meme, Nyan Cat (involving a cat with the body of a Pop-Tart flying through space and leaving a trail of rainbows), a parody game called Nyanicorn was created that mimicked the style of Robot Unicorn Attack, including the gameplay.[16][17]

There is also a fan-made version called 'Rainbow Dash Attack', where the eponymous Robot Unicorn is replaced by Rainbow Dash, a pegasus character from the series My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. Rainbow Dash is known to draw a trail of rainbow mid-flight, similar to the Robot Unicorn.[18]

Ivan Williams of 1UP.com stated that, 'Whether it's the song constantly on an [sic] loop or the simple desire to get a better score than the millions of other gamers playing, I challenge anyone to play Robot Unicorn Attack and not have that game pop into your head every now and then.'[22] In reviews of the major flash games of 2010, Eurogamer writer Kieron Gillen said, 'Like a comet made of gold, glitter and Lady Gaga's eyelashes, Robot Unicorn Attack circled the Earth and filled the firmament with its irresistible radiance for the whole of 2010. It changed lives. It challenged sexualities. It involves pressing two buttons. It is undoubtedly the greatest game of all time which features a Robot Unicorn, unless you're a metalhead who digs its sequel.'[2]

Scott Sharkey of UGO Networks said that while 'the aesthetic is a good gag for a few minutes', the important point of Robot Unicorn Attack is that 'the game itself is addictive enough to last much, much longer. At least, until someone catches you playing and ribs you about it for the next week or so.'[23] Neon Kelly, Previews Editor of VideoGamer.com, concluded after playing that 'Somehow the whole thing ends up being extremely addictive - despite the fact that the game's tongue is so firmly wedged in its cheek that it's in danger of giving itself permanent facial damage. If you've not yet done so, I heartily urge you to go try it.'[24] Toby Green of The Independent wrote in a short review that the game was 'Great fun', giving it four out of five stars.[25]

In a review of the iPhone version of the game, CNN writer Topher Kohan concluded, 'Easy-to-use controls, great soundtrack, the ability to turn the sound off and get useful feedback via vibrate and fun in-game tidbits. This feels like a game you'll put on your phone, then pull out to play again and again.'[26] In a twin review for the Australian Broadcasting Corporation by reviewers Stephanie Bendixsen ('Hex') and Steven O'Donnell ('Bajo'), Hex finished by saying, 'This game is utterly riDONKulous, so I'm giving it the utterly ridonkulous score of 8971. I can't wait to press Z to chase my dreams again', to which reviewer Bajo responded, 'I'm not sure how to score it after that.'[27]

Cartoon Network’s Adult Swim has been running for over fifteen years, so it’s natural that the brand would expand beyond the role of broadcasting a late-hour block of mature cartoons and into something much bigger; a video game publisher and part-time game developer.

While Adult Swim has bankrolled the distribution of some stellar indie affairs like Jazzpunk and Völgarr the Viking, they’ve also made a name in gaming with titles they’ve developed in-house. And one of their more prominent properties is the ridiculously enchanting Robot Unicorn Attack.

The series has spawned a few light-hearted sequels, but nothing as ambitious as the newest entry to the fold, Robot Unicorn Attack Forever. The latest effort from Adult Swim Games and GetSet is an evolution of the Equestrian Droid’s wish-chasing quest in every way you could imagine, and then some — it’s just too bad that a lot of the new depth offered is a bit limited because of at times poor execution and obnoxious paywalls.

In an age where endless runners have saturated the mobile space of gaming, Robot Unicorn Attack remained engaging because it recognized the undeniably effective allure that its bizarre presentation had. The previous entries took strides to prioritize the expansion to its themes over its gameplay.

The focus of Robot Unicorn Attack Forever is different, however. Adult Swim has shifted their direction toward gameplay this time around, and has fortunately done so in a manner that doesn’t compromise the novelty that gives the Mechanical steed its appeal. For starters, there’s a lot more at stake than simply running and jumping through deceptive death-traps. The score accumulated from your performance, for instance, is now used as experience to level up the capabilities of Robot Unicorn, alongside the newest edition to the series, the Citadel.

You’ll not only earn spoils for the fabled horse, but you’ll also earn points that will level up a magic base of operations that will offer a variety of functions to your adventures.
The Citadel will periodically generate the collectible tear drop currency from RUA’s second outing, as well as other special stones that can be used in its in-game store, where purchases from its market generate back a sum of experience to the base. The more experience you earn for the base, the closer you get to leveling it up to the next tier, which will not only significantly improve the output of its resource regeneration, but will also unlock a new stage for you to endlessly roam through. However, that task is easier said than done.

While the grind to get new goods is a little more demanding than it should be, the dynamic to purchase new ‘corns for use is satisfying, if not a bit messy.

Players will get to arrange a personalized team of their own horned beauties from a roster of over 40 different galloping bots, with the caveat of having to maintain your growing collection unicorns within a limited stable space. The concept is a bit frustrating as the manner of upkeep is clunky as hell; the only way to make room for more horses is to salvage the ones you don’t want for parts. Sounds simple enough, right?

It isn’t, not by a long shot…

All the new horses you buy are generated randomly through a gachapon-styled lottery, and while that doesn’t sound like an issue at first, it gradually becomes one when you realize that you can only salvage the horse you don’t want if there’s an upgradable horse available. If there isn’t, then you can’t trash them. And if you can’t trash anything, you won’t be able to buy anything— which left me with killing off Unicorns that I didn’t want to sacrifice. This left me with a full stable filled with incompatible unicorns.

The only way to efficiently grow the citadel beyond the standard horseplay is to recruit more horses, so I was left with no choice but to spend real-world money to expand my stable space by two more slots. Even as we speak, I narrowly avoid that dreaded stable scenario each and every time I visit the store to buy a new steed; it’s needlessly frustrating.

Aside from the gripes that come with growing the Citadel with clumsy resource management, the other method of expanding its abilities comes from directly playing the game itself, which thankfully is the most polished version of the formula yet.

Every rainbow-clad trot you run through will go toward upgrading Robot Unicorn, granting the steel beast new passive perks that will vary by its level; these perks range anywhere from additional smash bonuses to percentage increases for any of the experience points or items earned. In addition to their inherent abilities, you can upgrade the fabled creatures with companion bots, new floaty helper drones (available to buy from the Citadel’s store), and stacking additional perks onto the Unicorn as they hover alongside.

The other new addition introduced in Robot Unicorn Attack Forever is raiding, which will let you assign one of the unicorns in your stable to go out on a mission that takes place asymmetrically. These happen under a range of different time frames so that you can farm extra bonuses for your stone stash.

The feature isn’t mind-blowing, but it certainly is useful in taking on some of the glut from RUAF’s demanding grind. It also gives you something that you can do with the extra pair of hooves that’re taking up residence in the Citadel’s cramped stable.

While there’s been a lot of work done to add depth to the core game, the team didn’t forget about the importance of the title’s trademark nihilism, as Robot Unicorn Attack Forever has a load of dark humor behind it. There are plenty of moments where the irreverent Lumina will dish out plenty of backhanded ribs that’ll be sure to slap a dumb smile on your face, and the bios of the different unicorns that you collected in the game’s unidex are comedy gold, almost making up for the game’s flawed system that manages them.

I never did like the phrase “you can’t beat free” because there’s one other precious commodity that’s spent with video games that you just can’t earn back, and that’s time. Robot Unicorn Attack Forever doesn’t do the best job of respecting that time, but it’s still the most enjoyable entry that the series has ever produced.
There’s plenty of fun to be found, and the sequel does deserve to be played every now and again. I would just recommend not sinking your teeth too deep into the new depth it offer, as the payoff is more groan-inducing than it is rewarding.
