Free Online Game "Robot Unicorn Attack" Offers '80s Nostalgia and Super Cheesy Fun
Unicorns, butterfly faeries, dolphins, stars and rainbows, oh my! The free online Flash game "Robot Unicorn Attack" from Adult Swim is a highly entertaining time waster.
Ok, it all sounds absurd, I know, but this game is actually a highly entertaining time waster. You have three lives (called wishes) and the only reward is your final score. I found myself relentlessly trying to beat my previous high score, which led to over an hour of game play - Warning - this game is highly addictive!
Playing "Robot Unicorn Attack" is simple; using just the "Z" and "X" keys, you can double jump and dash. You're doing pretty well if the dolphins show up. During a good run, dolphins begin to jump below you. They seem as if they are supporting your deftness at first with their squeals of jubilation, but then they become distracting, making you crash. When you hit something without using your special dash power, the unicorn explodes and you'll then see a crying decapitated robot unicorn head. The game doesn't level up, but does increase in speed. Basically, you play until you die.
Fellow "Robot Unicorn Attack" junkie, B. Cotton, says, "This is what an in-browser game should be like - stupid and insanely good fun for no reason." As he begins to play another round he adds, "It makes you feel heroic." I agree. It's great when you hit your stride as the chorus of Erasure's "Always" reaches its pinnacle, "Always, I wanna be with you / And make believe with you / And live in harmony, harmony oh love!" As you fly through the air leaving behind a trail of rainbows, it does feel heroic.
Designed by Scott Stoddard and Adam Ford, with Ethan Halvor Sen and Tiffany Stoddard credited as '80s consultants, "Robot Unicorn Attack" has over 30 million plays and a current rating of 7.9 out of 10.
