About the Game
What do you in Bot Escape? Drive around a robot and look for a door. How do you do it? glad you asked.
- Use a controller! One of the purposes of this project was to learn how to get controller input and that works.
- Keyboard Controls (keyboard controls can be changed under options)

Even More About The Game
Generally don’t expect too much. This project originated as a way to learn about box2D, controller input, Wang tiles, and maze generating algorithms. I think there’s some potential to be a decent game if some good levels are designed. I tried my hand at designing two levels and have come to the conclusion that level design is hard and I’m not currently in the mood to do it. So who knows when we’ll get real levels for Bot Escape. In the mean time try out the maze and let me know what you think of the controls.
Sometimes the robot catches on horizontal surfaces in the generated mazes. This is an artifact of box2D, jump to unstick the robot.
