Gobtron is a Web Game where you play as Gobtron the large, hungry monster. Your goal is to eat or destroy all the enemies in the level without getting killed... by using the power of Toilet Humour.

You begin with a Snot Bubble that can be flung at enemies to catch and kill them. Later on, you can get a delayed, targeted shot gun, a spit bubble shield, a screen-clearing burp and a Fart that does the same, except it lingers.


The game can be played here.

This game contains the following tropes:

  • Airborne Mook: Appears in the WWII level and the Future levels. These are quite a nuisance and can be very dangerous if not taken down with the Booger Cannon. A helpful, power-up carrying bird also flies by every now and then.
    "CALL TO EVERY UNITS! Dispatch all AIR DEFENSES as quick as possible! We may have a chance to eradicate GOBTRON if we strike from the sky!"
  • Crosshair Aware: The Booger Cannon. You plant a crosshair, and 1.5 seconds later Gobtron will shoot a blob of damaging snot at it.
  • Deflector Shields: The Bubble Shield, which is basically a huge saliva bubble that blocks against all enemy fire.
  • Giant Mook: The large mooks, which take three hits to knock down before getting stuck unless you have the Shot Shot's final Upgrade.
    "IN THE NAME OF RA! This creature's SNOT is too sticky! Let's bring the HEAVY ONEs! They won't stick unless they're SMASHED into pieces!"
    • Enemy Structures also count- they have even more health, and can deal loads of damage if not destroyed quickly.
  • Fartillery: The Secret Morph, which can only be used once per level.

  • Flunky Boss: The Final Boss. They're just Flying Saucers that drop crates. If you fail to destroy the crates before they touch the ground, a wave of enemies appear. The first wave has you fight just one, but the next two have you face two and three at a time.
  • Funny Background Event: Every few levels, you see aliens abduct one the citizens of the level. They return in the final level, and spawn mooks from throughout the ages.
  • Future Copter: The Airborne Mook for the Future level.
  • Kung Fu-Proof Mook: Enemy structures take less damage from the Snot Shot and will cause the snot to retract if it hits them. Use the Booger Cannon instead.
    "SOUND THE HORN! We must build structures to bring down this beast! His SNOT should not be as effective on our TREBUCHET as it is on us!"
  • Mecha-Mooks: All the regular mooks in the Future are robots.

  • Mook Maker: The Medic center enemies will cause additional mooks to enter the area unless they are destroyed.
    "MAYDAY! This son of a gun is weakening our troops! Building MEDIC CENTERS should help INCREASE the number of soldiers! Hurry up!"
  • Shoot the Medic First: While not exactly a medic, the enemy hospital will keep bringing in extra enemies unless destroyed.
  • Smart Bomb: The Sonic Burp kills a large percentage of the Mooks on screen. Upgrading it gives it a higher chance of killing Mooks. The Secret Morph does the same, except that it lingers for a long period and kills most foes on the screen during that period.
  • Suffer the Slings: Made of snot, no less. (Slingsnot?)
  • Time Abyss: Gobtron. The game doesn't tell us when it came about, but it's survived from the prehistoric until the future...
  • Walking Into the Sunset: The bare-bones ending of the game.
  • Wolfpack Boss: The final boss, on the second and third waves.
  • Zerg Rush: The robots in the Future use this strategy to take down Gobtron.
    "BZZZ-BIP! You will be terminated soon, GOBTRON! If we don't overcome you with our POWER, we will overcome you with our NUMBER! BIP!"


How well does it match the trope?
