'BattleBots: Beyond The BattleBox' (GBA) - Screens

by Rainier on March 1, 2003 @ 2:26 p.m. PST

Based upon the widely popular Comedy Central television show, BattleBots is the sport of remote-controlled robotic combat. On the show, contestants design robots to compete in a fast-paced, ruthless competition to see who can destroy their opponent's robot first. In addition to designing a superior robot, contestants need to be skilled at controlling their BattleBot and use deft maneuvering techniques in order to avoid hazards and do the most damage to their opponent. The entire contest takes place in a steel encasement called the BattleBoxTM, which is designed for maximum safety on the outside and supreme torture on the inside.

In the game, players control one of their favorite BattleBots from the TV show, or create their own customized BattleBot. Upon winning a match, players are awarded cash so they can then upgrade their BattleBot with a wide range of weapons and special features (circular saws, hydraulic smashers, etc.).

Key Features:

  • Head-to-Head Combat - up to four BattleBots can duke it out simultaneously;
  • The BattleBox - the official arena of BattleBot combat rigged with all the Kill Saws, Pulverizers, Ram Rods and more from the show that gamers can use to their advantage;
  • Beyond the BattleBox - four additional arenas for robotic mayhem each with its own unique hazards;
  • Buy and Sell BattleBots - buy or sell BattleBots using the Game Link® Cable;
  • Four-Player, Free for All - game supports 1 - 4 player head-to-head action and allows the selling of BattleBots via the Game Link® Cable;
  • Training and Practice Courses - provides practice courses where players learn to steer and control Bots, hit stationary and moving targets;
  • Bonus Features - players can "unlock" special features through winning performances;
  • Customizable BattleBots - Build your own BattleBot or upgrade a created BattleBot with a wide range of weapons and special features;
  • More powerful BattleBots than the TV show - because this is a video game, BattleBots incorporates weapons and features that wouldn't be possible on the TV show.
