The movement is very slow, and it doesn't build up speed very much, if at all. This limits the player's options for strategy, as one might come from across the room, building up speed, to get that extra oomph to knock someone out. It doesn't seem to matter how far you've travelled before hitting someone, you bounce them the same amount.
I'd also advise spending just a little bit of time building an AI for un-manned bots, even it its just something simple.

I played myself, it's a good concept. Program some bots for those of us who just want to mess around with multiple opponents :D it'll help a lot.

Fun idea, but too slow for my taste. Perhaps adding extra (moving) obstacles would also be interesting.

Simple and effective idea, great concept. Was hard to gather a group to play this but it was fun. Maybe if it had more options for chaos and what not the game would be really fun but still it is pretty good!

It's a funny game with keyboard, I didn't understand the picture of the controller. I can play 8 robot with only one controller? :D

The diagram of the controller means that two people share a controller.

It's an interesting start. I like that you can at least try it with only a single player. Could be really neat with some work!

Neat game! I included it in my compilation video series of the Ludum Dare 37 games, if you’d like to take a look. :) https://youtu.be/9I4q6tJ6Ge8
