The Behemoth co-founder Tom Fulp's Cathode Raybots is a one-on-one shooter (and level editor) where old TVs have returned from space and made a sport out of killing humans. Players can participate on either side of the death sport to help decide who wins.
Anyone can customize Raybot opponents, setting their design, attack pattern, and stage in which the death match occurs. Human mode is basically the campaign, where you fight all the user-created Raybots in random sets of two or more.
Cathode Raybots reminds me a bit of Mega Man: The Power Battle, in that it's essentially chained boss fights without gaining their powers (but with virtually unlimited content). Johnny Utah's art here looks superb, and the Newgrounds community has already a lot of hard Raybots to lose to.
