Reach Robotics' Mecha Monsters lets friends battle one another's mecha-creations

Reach Robotics has created Mecha Monsters, robots that battle other robots via smartphones.

Players program their robots via an app that lets them battle other players or compete in mini-games to improve the robots' designs. There are two types of robot: the Brute and the Berserker. The Brute is a “tank” type, a more durable fighter. The Berserker meanwhile focuses on speed and agility. While the numbers and fighting take place invisibly in the app, the match plays out in real time on the phone screen.
