Robot Unicorn Attack is one of our favorite arcade games. 148Apps“Robot Unicorn Attack 2 is a wonderful follow-up and a textbook example of how sequels should be done. 4.5/5” -Modojo 'The graphics are mesmerizingly gorgeous, with all kinds of wild.

There are many types of games which are played by thousands of people all over the world but one of my favorite is robot unicorn attack evolution, which is mainly action based flash game, which was produced few years ago. If you have not played it, I definitely suggest you playing it because it’s really awesome and you will enjoy the gameplay itself.

At first you are little lovely unicorn which evolutes herself step by step. One of the most important part is that you will have only 3 chances. I mean the life points which give you possibility to recover again and continue the game. As far as you go, more points you will be able to score, but on the road you will face huge amount of problems such as obstacles and main idea is to jump over them and overcome other difficulties too.

Then after getting enough points you will be able to change into panda, which is stronger and healthier then the robot unicorn herself. Strategy is not to miss any stars on the road because while picking them you will automatically gain strength and speedy. Just make sure not to fall into the gaps, sometimes paying attention to the screen helps the gamer to avoid those ones. Then comes the wolf, which is one of my favorite and it really takes few minutes to fully understand all the qualities of that animal.
Personally it takes me 5 minutes to change in to gorilla, that has pretty huge jump so it means that it will be easier for you to jump from one place into another without hitting the land. Also the graphics of robot unicorn attack evolution is quite impressive and you will love all the action land spaces In the background. One of the last step is becoming rhinoceros, but after completing all the levels you will get back to unicorn which is must stronger than before.

Getting boost for the speed increase is quite helpful because there is mall chance of getting lost or missing any kind of points , starts, or coins on the road to the finish line. After playing the game few times, you will get the idea of the whole action. If you have finished playing it you are able to share the stats with your friends to invite them for beating you.

Gameplay[edit]

The Robot Unicorn approaching a star.

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]

Robot Unicorn Attack 2

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]

Robot Unicorn Attack

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]

Robot Unicorn Attack Music

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]

Robot Unicorn Attack Song

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]
