Welcome to the upgraded Killer Robots site! While on the surface it doesn't appear all that different, we can assure you that much has been changed. In fact, we're going to call this version 4.0 instead of v3.2. Let's go to the list:
What's New in v4.0:
- All new responsive design that automatically resizes to take advantage of smaller screen sizes.
- New Killer Robots logo.
- Completely changed font faces, size, and styling. No more squinting.
- New retina graphics for some images. The rest of the images will be upgraded over time.
- New responsive light box for screenshots. Yay for iPhone users.
- Cleaned up and simplified CSS and HTML (valid HTML5 and CSS3 no less).
- A move towards using CSS effects instead of pregenerated graphics.
- New favicon.
- New iOS site icon.
- Other stuff, probably.
Uploaded version 1.2.1 of StarWarsScroll to fix a small bug that would sometimes crash System Preferences if SWS was running in the preview window. It's believed that the bug only affected Mountain Lion, but everyone should probably update to be on the safe side.
StarWarsScroll has been gifted a lovely version 1.2 update. For this special occasion it has received 27 new scrolls from the expanded Star Wars universe, retina display support, numerous bug fixes, and more. It would be most delightful if you would try it out.
Totally Sweet Sudoku for the Mac and iPad has been submitted to Apple for release on the App Store. Look for it soon!
Version 1.0 of Illuminations HD for the iPad has been submitted to Apple for release on the App Store. Look for it soon!
Version 0.3.2 of Illuminations has been released. Full Snow Leopard support plus bug fixes await you. A larger update to catch the OS X version up to the iPhone version is planned, but not for the near future.
Movement on the iPhone front! Killer Robots has released two new iPhone apps for all your mobile needs. First up is Ladybug Dreams, our second game on the go. Ladybug Dreams was a huge hit way back in uDevGame 2003, and we're proud to bring the updated version to the iPhone. Next up is a port of our world famous screen saver, Jack-O-Lantern. The iPhone version features exclusive carvings, spooky sound effects, and interactions not available in the screen saver. Check them out on the App Store or on the iPhone page!
That dastardly Apple's grand scheme to make Mac OS X even more the bestest OS in the world unfortunately broke all the third-party screen savers in Snow Leopard. Oh noes! Fortunately, we've got updates for Jack-O-Lantern and StarWarsScroll right here. Download and rejoice!
Killer Robots is proud to announce the release of Illuminations for the iPhone and iPod touch. Bigger and better than the desktop version, but in a handy pocket-size. Not familiar? Illuminations is a fireworks-based action game. Loads of pretty particles and great sound and music. Illuminations is just the first step in our comprehensive plan to conquer the iPhone and iPod touch, so don't get left behind in the new regime!
Introducing the Killer Robots DevBlog for all your Killer Robots development blogging needs. There's not much content yet, but hopefully that will be fixed in short order.
Had a bit of a hurricane problem there for a couple weeks that slowed development, but we return bearing gifts! Jack-O-Lantern has been updated to version 1.3.1 just in time for the Halloween season. Marvel at the new carvings, features, and bug fixes. Rest assured that we're hard at work on an even larger update, so you can consider this the just-in-case-of-eighteen-more-hurricanes version.
Version 0.3.1 of Illuminations has been released. This update features bug fixes galore plus more non-visible behind-the-scenes changes that aren't even mentioned in the Read-Me. Also updated is the screenshots at the bottom of the page, as they were lagging behind by a couple versions. Huzzah!
Version 0.3 of Illuminations is now available. New features include an options screen, some gameplay balance changes, and loads of bug fixes and code improvements. Download and check it out or else we'll be really sad pandas.
A new version of Illuminations is available. The major new feature is an automatic update checker so that you will be alerted on new version releases. It should make the grand experiment a lot nicer on you, the gamer.
So we got to thinking. Killer Robots hasn't released a new game in a while. Too bad we don't have a new game to release. So we decided to release an old one instead. It isn't exactly finished either, but that's never stopped us before. Confused? Don't be. Check out the Illuminations page for the full scoop. What's old is new again.

Fixed the Totally Sweet Sudoku buy page to be secure in all browsers. Previously some browsers (like Firefox) weren't reporting that the page was secure when they should have been. The problem has been fixed. Those responsible for sacking the people who have just been sacked have been sacked. At the same time, the site has been updated to fix a few display problems in some browsers. Internet Explorer still needs a little work, but the site should look great in all the other major browsers.
We're hard at work on a version 1.1 update for Totally Sweet Sudoku. The update will add several super cool features like difficulty levels, variable sized puzzles, improved graphics, and more ninjas with guitars. We also have some teaser pages in the works for upcoming games. So check back soon!
We received word that the buy page was rejecting free e-mail accounts (like yahoo.com and hotmail.com). The man responsible has just been sacked. The issue has (theoretically) been resolved, so if you were having problems, please try again. Sorry for the inconvenience.
Totally Sweet Sudoku has been released into the wild undercurrents of the net. It will now absorb the infinite knowledge stored therein until it gains sentience. 10 years from now we'll be bowing down to our new lord and master, but at least we'll have played many a fine game of sudoku. Check it out won't you? And feel free to purchase the full version. It greases the wheels of commerce and gives warm feelings in those tingly areas.
