Battlebots Metal Breakdown was a shockwave-based game created by Comedy Central in light of Battlebots' success on TV.

Instead of battle music, there is only audio of a crowd making noise. The controls for your robot are done with the arrow keys on your keyboard as indicated by the box at the bottom-center of the screen. As you battle your opponent, gauges at the top-left

The dashed yellow line is the sawblade in the center. When a winner is decided, that robot's opponent is thrown into the air in a sort-of explosion while the winning robot is brought to the center of the screen and spun 360 degrees.
