Minecraft Captures the Non-Stop Action of Rock'em Sock'em Robots

Two robots enter, both robots stay, only one has a slightly elevated head. Minecraft craftsman Sethbling has recreated the 1964 sensation that swept an easily-amused nation, Rock'em Sock'em Robots.


The classic two-player big robot battles comes to life in Mojang's pile of virtual building blocks, using a rather ingenious little pressure plate mechanic to simulate the pulse-pounding battles of the original game. It's red versus blue in its earliest form, the movable though somewhat janky object versus the other movable though somewhat janky object.

Back when I was a little kid Rock'em Sock'em Robots would amuse us for whole minutes at a time, after which we'd start breaking bits off and throwing them at each other. I suppose you could do the same thing with the Minecraft version. Download it yourself via the link in the YouTube description and find out!

Yes, I consider Minecraft a meme...of sorts.
