As chance would have it, there already is such a game named K-Robots
(http://freshmeat.net/projects/krobots). It's not a KDE app, though. I
stumbled upon the existence of K-Robots only because "KRobots" was the
original working title of Killbots.

Either way, I don't think this is grounds for abandoning the proposal
or anything. I just thought it was interesting. A name change would
probably be a good idea, though.
