Father of the year

The world's gone to pot, the robots have become self-aware and humanity's in peril. But wait — all's not lost, as a paranoid hillbilly has been waiting for this very day with an impressive stockade of weaponry. And beer.

Demiurge Studios' Shoot Many Robots arrives on the European PlayStation Network today. The side-scrolling shooter has you blow up as many runaway automatons as you can handle, aided by oodles of ammunition and items that customise your abilities.

If you don't feel up to the task of rebooting those 'bots alone, you can plug into four player online co-op and two player local co-op instead.

Check out this trailer — do you think Shoot Many Robots might be worth a shot?
