Robot Wants Ice Cream, the fourth and final game in the Robot series after Robot Wants Kitty, Robot Wants Puppy, Robot Wants Fishy, is a 2D webgame made using Actionscript 3.0, the Flixel library, and music by DrPetter and Robbe. The game was released on Kongregate and Hamumu on September 25, 2010. The goal of the game to get Robot some ice cream! The game picks off from the last game. Robot, fed up with Kitty's shenegians, throws kitty out of an airlock. Robot and Puppy then enter cryostasis (yes, robots need sleep too) until they reach Happy Ice Cream Planet. However, when they arrive, things are not as they should be...
This game is much more action-oriented than the other games in the Robot series. Powerups are scattered throughout the map, and collecting them will upgrade your existing ablities. There are also two game modes - Normal and Madcap. In Normal, Robot has three hit points. In Madcap, robot only has 2 hit points and enemies have been given more health and deadlier ablities.

|Uberboxen||Looks like a Das Boxen from Robot Wants Fishy, only now it's a cyborg! A very hard Boss especially in Madcap. Moves in a rectangular pattern. It has four forms - each form moves faster and fires more bullets at Robot. In Madcap, it moves even faster! Boss.|

|Security Cores||There are two Security Cores - Alpha and Beta, but they are identical save for the side of the wall they are found in. The core is invincible until its turrets are destroyed, in which case the Core will be vulnerable and fire aimed bullets at Robot. After firing some bullets, the Core will be invincible again and the turrets respawn. In Madcap, the Security Cores fire a spread of bullets. They are bosses that must be defeated to open the Central Corridor that leads to the final battle.|
|Tom Stone||The final boss, found atop the spaceship bombarding the Happy Ice Cream Planet. Controled by Kitty. Has five forms with different attacks; his first form jumps around and tries to squash Robot, his second form hovers in the air and shoots red bullets in a spiral around him, and his third form adds dual bomb launchers to the top of his body. His fourth form changes his name to KITTY!?!, revealing the Robot's old feline companion as the pilot of the boss. His final form reduces the mecha to a hovering pod that floats towards Robot and drops a barrage of bombs from its underside.|

The Bananarang is one of the most powerful powerups in the game. It allows your projectiles to bounce off walls and fly faster. Press E to eat the banana.
Here's how to find it:
Go to the very bottom of Happy Ice cream planet where Holey Moley was, then, move to the right, keep moving to the right, when you reach the dead end, you can walk through the brown wall, and keep moving right and there it is, that red thing with the banana! Near the lower-right corner of the map, there is a 1-tile gap leading to a fake wall.
