Trivia:
1) Like the "Gauntlet" games on which Xybots is based; the game is endless and play will continue until all lives are lost and players no longer wish to use the 'Continue' option.
2) Xybots was originally going to be "Gauntlet III", before Atari changed its mind and created a new Sci-fi setting. It's development name was "Robox" until the game was completed.

3) First third-person shooter (with static movements ) is  I, Robot (1983).
