"SPOT THE BOT"

Call it "homage." Call it laziness. Either way, every robot that appears in the Barn Runner games started life somewhere else before I stole borrowed it for a guest appearance in my game. Just which robot came from where has been the subject of much "spot the bot" e-mailing over the last several years. So I finally decided to cut out the middle man (and save myself a little time) by just listing them here.

Below are all the robots who have appeared in the various Barn Runner games (in the order that the games were released). Robots are listed by their proper names, source, and where they appear in the game.

AND TO RESPOND TO POINTS SOME OF YOU HAVE MADE...
1) Yes, I know a Dalek isn't technically a robot.
2) 1979 Cylons are robots, named for the lizard race that created them.
3) It sure as hell looks like a robot to to me, pokemon or not.
4) There are several different designs for her. I used the cabinet art.
5) Technically Great Mazinger, but that was the name of the toy I had.
6) The robot and his pal are my "real life" renditions of Bender and Fry (from Futurama) as they might appear on a low-budget daytime soap opera. Thus, the bad cardboard robot costume.
7) This is a great little adventure game, well worth your time to play. Check it out here.
8) In the movie, they called him an ABC Warrior. But it was obviously Hammerstein.
