In the 22nd Century athletes have reached their limits in traditional sports and records are no longer broken, so people have turned to robots for their entertainment. In this complex strategy game, you must design an army of robots with varying abilities to battle an opposing army. Victory is achieved when either side destroys the other side's satellite, but this isn't just Capture the Flag. Robots fight and destroy each other, you can hide mines, and some robots can act as minesweepers, adding an element of Stratego or Admirals. The satellite is also the means by which the robots communicate with each other, so the robots can only receive orders while they're within range of the satellite. The catch is that you don't get to control the robots. Once you've created your army, the robots fight without human intervention, so everything depends on the strength of your planning. John Reder originally published Robot Crusades under the name RederWare. Registered robots could not be used in the shareware version.
