Strategy tips #3: How to make The Bitter End a bit less bitter


Did you manage to read out that headline without biting your tongue? Yes? GOOD, we can begin with the real deal then.

After a request from EuroGamerGirl on Twitter (it’s been a while, sorry!), we decided to share some deck ideas and tips about The Bitter End, one of the most challenging levels in Trouble With Robots. It’s one of those “blue spots” in the map: levels where you should use all your skills as a deck-building-master to reach the end. Somehow it is our “Survival Mode”. And we’re aware that it’s a tough nut to crack!

Strategy tips #2: How to beat Escape in Hard mode

Escape is the first level of Chapter 3, AKA the Megamort expansion. Like the name suggests, it details the getaway of our heroes from the heinous alien ship. It can be a bit tricky, and a TWR player named Mike has reached out to us via our Facebook and asked us for help to beat the level in Hard mode.

Today we’re going to share a deck created by our community manager, Mariela. We want to keep the strategy simple here, so that anyone who has just reached this level of the storyline will still be able to give it a try. There are no “premium” cards in this list, just the ones that you are likely to have already obtained by this point.

  • Angry Mob
  • Forge Workers
  • Mining Guild
  • Defiant Guardian
  • Hope Charm
  • Invigorate
  • Slow Motion


It’s a deck based on dwarves: those tough guys will be useful to confront the upgraded Baton Robots, way more resistant than the basic ones. While the front line is busy with this, it’s very important to protect the rearguard, where our own range robots and elves are. Slow Motion will prevent range enemy attacks from reaching us too quickly, providing our dwarves enough time to break the lines. Angry Mob will power up our army, along with Invigorate, which will also give us extra help by recharging our hand faster.

Easy, right? But as simple as it looks, it could be quite effective even in Hard mode. Give it a try and tell us your thoughts! If you have other ideas, please toss us some other suggestions! What’s your favorite deck to beat Escape?

Summer news! Languages, social sharing… and more to come

It’s been a while since our last update. Don’t worry, we’ve not been kidnapped. In fact, we’ve been working pretty hard on improving our game, and making it more accesible for people who don’t speak English. So we’re really happy to announce that Spanish and a polished version of German have been added to the languages of the game.

Take a look at the menu now.


And there’s more. We want Trouble With Robots to be played all over the world, without entry barriers of any kind. Spoiler alert: we’re also working on Simplified Chinese. Here’s a hint.
