Description from the publisher:
Robot Royale is a tile-based strategic combat game for 2-4 players. Players aim to claim victory through moving and positioning their robots and rotating tiles to trap and destroy their opponents, scoring points each time they do.
Robot Royale has core mechanics that are easy to learn and quick to play, but is also robust enough to have tactical depth and encourage competitive play. The game has a very high replay value due to the interchangeable tile layouts and the choices made during play.
In Robot Royale, each player controls a robot who is seeking to hunt down opposing robots and destroy them, claiming victory. This is achieved simply by drawing line of sight to an opposing robot during their turn. The arena however is designed to make this difficult, 16 square tiles each comprised of four spaces with walls and falling floors restricting the robots' movement.
Players move their robot in straight lines and rotate tiles to change the layout of the arena to their advantage, creating routes to allow them to destroy another robot or limiting an opponent's possible moves and trapping them. Another feature of the arena is that once a robot leaves a space it falls away leaving a space that cannot be occupied. As the game progresses these spaces reduce the robots' possible moves, forcing them together into a final showdown.
A game of Robot Royale is won when a player reaches their goal, three points in an average game.
