The introduction of the BBC’s Robot Wars onto national television was a breath of fresh air from repeated shows and documentaries. Robot Wars quickly became one of the most popular shows on TV and captured an audience similar to that in the field of video games. So, without further a do, the BBC’s multimedia division went to work on a GameBoy version of the series. Robot Wars: Metal Mayhem is the resulting product.

Naturally a 2D-based game, Metal Mayhem surprisingly (due to the GameBoy’s technical limitations) allows players to create and customise their own robots right down to design and weapons. After saving the ultimate destructive robot, you can test your creation in a series of trials. Each event will test each of the robot’s abilities and will hopefully uncover just a few minor weaknesses. Strength and agility can be tried in the Sumo and Slalom events, respectively. In proper wars of grudge matches, the arenas will contain all the traps and surprises of the TV show. There are fans, flames, and even in-house robots challenging you to the death.

With 100 million GameBoys floating around and a massive user base with an appropriately aged audience, Robot Wars: Metal Mayhem should be quite popular, and is a good game, regardless.
