About Main Assembly

About this game

You’re the designer, engineer and architect, if you can imagine it you can create it! Construct robots of any shape or size from eight-legged spider bots to eerie UFO contraptions. Engineer each and every appendage with powerful visual programming letting you dictate the bots every move. When you’ve completed your masterpiece, open the world builder and craft the ultimate obstacle course to push your bot to its limit.

You’re the designer, engineer and architect if you can imagine it you can create it! Construct robots of any shape or size from eight-legged spider bots to eerie UFO contraptions. 

IMAGINE

Imagination is more important than knowledge.

Alone or with fellow inventors, envision your design then make it a reality.

WORLD BUILDING 

You can do anything you want. This is your world.

Create a world in which your bots will be challenged. Craft tracks for racing or complex obstacle courses that tease out all those lovely design flaws you didn’t know you had.

SYNC UP

Alone we are drone; together we are drones.

Show off your designer skills first-hand with up to three friends. Build worlds together to challenge each other's bots in different obstacles courses and tracks. Or smash each other's creations into metallic pulp (more coming soon).

CHALLENGE 

Who dares wins.

No friends? No problems. We’ve created a single-player mode with over 100 challenges to test your inventions.

PROGRAM 

Visualize the code.

Don’t panic, we don’t expect you to code in C# (we’re doing that). In fact, it’s entirely optional, but if you’re up to the challenge we’ve designed a powerful visual programming tool for you to enhance your creations.

WORKSHOP 

Share, Share, Share.

Add (or take) from the thousands of already created bots and worlds hand-crafted by our dedicated fans from all over the globe.

DESTROY 

There’s no creation without destruction. 

If you want to test the limits of your construction, then drive it off a cliff.

Or smash each other's creations into metallic pulp in the devastating Bot Brawls mode.

I had a copy and bought another so my son could play co-op with me. We love these builder games, and this game lets you build all kinds of things, and it has co-op mode, win-win!!

This is a great sandbox that allows the player to create and control various machines. There are also challenges and other levels, but for me the appeal is to be able to create silly constructs and play with them. I only wish the editor allowed for more precise positioning and movement of parts (the chassis editor takes quite a bit of practice).
