About the Game

A Robot Named Fight! brings permadeath, procedural generation, and countless quick playthroughs to the Metroidvania genre. Developed solely by Matt Bitner, this game features SNES-inspired graphics, a driving retrowave soundtrack, and environmental storytelling in lieu of cutscenes and dialogue.


A Robot Named Fight! puts you in the role of an anonymous robot defending a robot city under siege by grotesque meat beasts. In any of the over four billion unique runs,  discover randomized items to traverse deeper beneath the surface and gain the powers you need to defeat the Megabeast. Be careful though; death is forever in this roguelike Metroidvania!

Millennia of peace have passed since the mechanical gods ascended, leaving the lower order robots to cultivate the world. But something forgotten and terrible now stirs amidst the stars.


The Megabeast, a pulsating, moon-sized orb of flesh and countless eyes, mouths and reproductive organs, penetrates the stratosphere and spills forth its children unto the world. It is up to you, a lone robot, to fight this unstoppable plague of meat.


You must delve beneath the surface to retrieve the lost artifacts of war-time so that you may become fight enough to face Megabeast. Should you fail, your carcass will be added to the mountains of metal already scraping the sky.
