Werbetext (englisch)
Join Major Rock Hardy and Captain Ace Gunn on their quest to overcome the Master Xybot and his horde of evil robotic monsters.

Xybots is a one- or two-player game with a continuous buy-in feature allowing players to join in at any time. A color-coded control panel and game character allows for instant identification by players. Each player controls a special joystick and two buttons. The joystick is eight-way directional with an independent turning knob for left and right turns. Blaster buttons, located on either side of the joystick, are sed to fire upon the many evil Xybots found in the maze. The center zap button is used to stun all opponents within the players view.

The huge underground multi-level city created by the Xybots is composed of mazes with locked doors and transporters to connect different areas of the same level. Players must battle the Xybots and reach the exit elevator to advance to the next level. In the mazes, players find energy pods to restore energy, keys to open oors and coins to buy valuable supplies in the store. At the end of each level, players enter the store where supplies can be purchased. Some supplies are permanent, others are only temporary and must be replenished.

Every few levels player must face the master Xybot in a one-on-one duel. Only by defeating the master Xybot can players advance to the next level. The penalty for losing is to be sent back a few levels.

Das Spiel wurde von Domark auf Amstrad/Schneider CPC, Atari ST, Amiga, MSX und ZX Spetrum portiert. Eine für das NES geplante Version wurde nicht veröffentlicht. Es ist auch Teil der Spielesammlungen Midway Arcade Treasures 2, Midway Arcade Origins, Midway Arcade Treasures Extended Play und Midway Arcade Treasures Deluxe Edition.

Arbeitstitel des Spiels war Robox. Ursprünglich sollte es eine Fortsetzung der Gauntlet-Reihe werden und unter dem Namen Gauntlet III vertrieben werden.
