Freedroid (also known as “FreedroidClassic”) is an arcade/shooter game that was designed as a clone of the classic game Paradroid on Commodore 64. It spawned (and shares some source code with) FreedroidRPG. A version was included on OpenSource Game Power volume 2.


You control a droid in a spaceship full of droids that have gone berserk. Your weapon is weak, but your droid has a strategical advanta: You can hack into other droids. The spaceship consists of several decks connected by elevators.

The goal is to destroy all enemy droids by shooting or taking over them in a minigame in which you need to connect electronic circuits.
