Gameplay Notes:

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 There are three systems you need to keep running: the legs, arms, and main gun.  Each takes a unique type of fuel. 

When you run out, you'll be able to see what fuel goes to which system by the sets of blinking white circles. 

 Use the cardinal direction keys to move Beepis around Bolthead's body. Tap in the direction of the system you want to interact with to pick up or deposit fuel types. 

 Beepis can only carry one type of fuel, but you can swap them by bumping into a different fuel source.  

 Every 5 uses of a directional key it will "burn out" as one of the fuses in Beepis' brain goes pop. When this happens, you will need to tap a new key to install a new fuse. 

That new key will now act as the replacement for the old key, so choose your positioning wisely.  The remaining key "fuses" you haven't used are shown at the bottom of the screen. 

Once you use all 25 letters, the entire system will reset.  

 Keep all of Bolthead's systems operational, and you'll be able to advance to the next level and rack up a new hiscore!

I like the game idea it seems pretty cool, and the music choice is great. I'd recommend jut updating your description page with the instructions on how to play it'll help people tremendously in rating your game.

Thanks for the tip, I have written a short game guide in the description. I would have updated sooner but had a hectic few days at work. Hopefully this will help people enjoy our little pixellated trash fire just a bit more!

Pretty awesome that you had the opening story setup. I got very confused in the actual game and thought I had figured it out a few times but never put it all together. Agreeing with others, a little more guidance, even in text form on the page would help!

Good job regardless!

Hey another robot game! I was really impressed with the level of depth your team managed to achieve in such a short time span, and with good looking presentation as well! I really enjoyed the opening cinematic, that level of polish is always impressive in a Jam game. I agree with the other commenter, some instructions might have helped, however I did enjoy puzzling it out myself too.

Such a cool game! It took me a while to figure out the controls and the chip system, a little help screen would have been nice, but I love the concept. The intro and animations are awesome, good job!
