Originally a limited mode accessible only via a secret seed. The fan demand pushed A Robot Named Fight! creator Matt Bitner to evolve. So now Deathmatch is a prominent game feature. This new game mode pits up to four players against one another. Each controlling their own version of the titular robot. While fighting in a couch co-op blaster brawl.

So after choosing from any of the five hand-crafted arenas. Players have the opportunity to start with three Artifacts chosen via roulette. Just how generous will the gods be?
Once the action starts, explore and retrieve additional firepower and randomly generated upgrades (orbs, vorbs and morebs!) to hunt down and destroy your opponents. Work against a countdown timer or toward a kill-count while dodging the relentless barrage of laser beams, wave bombs, and buzzsaws.
