Robotron is a friendly robot forced to live in a time, 2084, when most robots want nothing more than to murder each and every human in sight.  Fortunately, Robotron is armed to the metal teeth, ready and willing to destroy belligerent automatons.  Robotron 2084 consists of a series of single-screen fields viewed from a top-down perspective, filled with evil roots and a few humans waiting to be rescued.  The humans are hilariously dressed in business attire and carry briefcases, easily identifiable in spite of the primitive graphics.  Story-wise, Robotron is a sequel to Defender, although the games bear little resemblance in design.

Robotron 2084 was inducted on April 22nd, 2009.
