Emulation
This game works with: Basilisk II, Mini vMac

Up to four teams of heavily armed robots engage in arena battle - but each one carries out a sequence of actions programmed into it before the beginning of the round.

This was one of the first networked games for the Macintosh. You could deal out mechanical carnage over an AppleTalk network, or across a modem. A loyal fanbase has released several updates to the original version of RoboSport, that allow the game to use TCP/IP networks, as well as function properly on PowerPCs.

Yes, most of us do. When EA goes under we'll be able to consider it for inclusion here.

Is this version of Robosport patched to run on PPC processors without a 16 color mode?
