|Game(s)||Platform Panic, Vault!, Go Pogo|
In Platform Panic walking panic bots come in two forms: a walking and hovering form. The walking form is the most common and appears as a robot with a gold head and a purple body with arms and legs, the robot having claw like hands and tiny flaps for feet. The hovering form replaces the robot's legs with jet packs that allow it to hover.
In Vault!, only a regular panic bot appears.
Both variation of regular panic bots walk horizontally back and forth, turning at walls. The walking panic bot walks around, while the hovering variant has the ability to hover. Regular panic bots move slower than the player, and are often encountered with a single panic bot occupying a platform, though in rare instances two walking panic bots may walk on the same platform and pass through each other when they meet.
In the jungle background introduced in Update 2, a large regular panic bot being built appears.
A regular panic bot can be unlocked for 300 coins. If the panic bot impacts any hazard, it will explode.
A regular panic bot can be unlocked for 110 coins. If the panic bot impacts a hazard, it will explode.
Jumping panic bots
|Jumping panic bots|
Jumping panic bots are a less common encountered panic bot in Platform Panic.
Jumping panic bots have the head of a regular panic bot and a torso consisting of an extendable metal spring-like object with spikes on the bottom.
The second variation of panic bots moves horizontally and do so by jumping, jumping as high as the player and covering the same distance but taking a short amount of time to follow up with another jump, though unlike the player when this type of panic bot jumps it goes straight through any platform.
|Attack||Rushing towards the player|
Drill tanks are a type of panic bot introduced in Update 2 of Platform Panic.
Drill tanks appear as regular panic bots but with a slight change: their torso is smaller, their arms are smaller and have drills attached to them, and their legs are replaced with tank treads.
Drill tanks first move at a regular speed, but immediately and quickly charge towards the player when the player are on the same platform as the drill tank, even if the Drill tank is not facing them when the player is on the same platform as them. Drill tanks will turn around if player gets behind it. The vision of a drill tank can be blocked by walls in front of them.
- The heads and arms of the panic bots are similar to LEGO minifigures.
