Trouble With Robots for Android on Google Play
Trouble With Robots for iOS
The Trouble With Robots is a side-scrolling real-time customisable card game with elements in common with Magic: The Gathering and Plants vs Zombies. Build a deck of 5 - 9 cards and then attempt to beat a level using the summon and spell cards you've chosen. More cards are unlocked as you play, and there are plenty of combos and new deck archetypes to be discovered.

The Trouble With Robots also features a humorous story about the people of a fantasy world trying to fight off an invasion of bureaucratic robots. Skyscrapers and shopping malls are built, and their beautiful world will never be the same again!
  • 48 cards to collect
  • 32 levels
  • Limited mode for extended play
  • Summon hordes of angry peasants, griffins and dragons!
The game is currently available from the Digital Chestnut website and is getting great reviews from the indie community. You can download the PC demo here:

Getting onto Steam would allow many more people could discover and enjoy The Trouble With Robots.

'The Trouble With Robots is a lean little card battle game that picks a few elements and does them right' (JayIsGames)

'I'm not exactly sure whether the hand-drawn graphics or the promise of a new card-game drew me in, but I do know that, at the end of the day, The Trouble With Robots cost me said day.' (

'cleverly designed' (GameInformer)

'I couldn’t help but chuckle at some of the one-liners' (The Leet)

'The Trouble With Robots is a fine card-based strategy game' (Out of Eight PC Game Reviews)

I understand your disappointment. The mobile version was actually done by another team, so please don't blame that, and the PC version didn't bring in enough money to keep me working as a full-time indie. I wish I had better news for you.

a little disappointed :( Wish you focused more on the Steam porting BEFORE mobile but oh well

At this point I have to admit that the Steam release probably isn't going to happen. I no longer have the time to build and support it, and I doubt it would bring many new players to the game anyway.

Loving the new artwork in iOS / Android version! Definitively worth play the game again in mobile (find it by Trouble With Robots, btw).

Thanks for the support - I'm looking forward to getting the game on Steam, but am very busy this month, please be kind if it takes me a little while...
