I like the idea of enemies that can only be hit in the back. Maybe an interesting variant is just something that can't easily be hit from the sides.
Weird! Here are some questions to help diagnose the problem:
I erred on the side of caution with it, fearing it would be too powerful.
We're gonna make it a bit better in an upcoming small update!
I think however it's implemented it should stop training energy when you fall over. That's a good note
This is a good outline of the counters I think. :)
In addition to the bow I would put jetpack and fire as counters to the hammer bots.
The way fire ended up working was a direct response to the tendency for hammer3s to take damage without dying due to their large body size.
So it's less of a triangle and more of a complex set of arrows where many things can be used to overcome the challenges posed by the various other weapons.
Definitely something I think about a lot though. The overhauled kick was a direct counter to the cursed mark 2 jetpack bots, who were the apex predator of Endless Mode for a while.
Don't email us about it! :D

A nice trophy, and the happiness of Upgrade Bot is your only reward. <3

Two major changes happened to the jetpack:
In the right hands this change could be even more deadly than the new fire upgrades!
Harvested from the Inferno Challenge, Endless Mode now has many things that are ON FIRE!
Read this guide!!!
Get the upgrade, then press F to activate it!
We forgot to make a tutorial. :P
Thanks everyone for your love and support throughout this amazing journey.
We have many more updates in store for you.
These are fun ideas! I agree that it would be cool to see more done with body parts flying off and the fact that bodies can be deformed in real time. :)
At one point in time I was thinking of adding a banana to twitch mode. The audience could throw it at the player as a form of communication. We'll see if we move on that in the future.
It looks super cool! Love the expressive face. :)
Could see something like this being a cool boss fight one day.
Btw, I started fixing those images for you but noticed you had a TON of them! :P
Here's how to post images from imgur:
