FR-33 is a Sci-fi 2D Platformer created and published by Scarce Gaming for the AtHome Disc on March 4th,


1996. It focused on the slave robot FR-33's quest for sentience and freedom.

Main Characters

  • FR-33 - The main and titular character. A slave robot who is on a quest for sentience and freedom. He has 4 different moves - Jump (Button 1), Attack (Button 2), Kick Attack (Left or Right on D-Pad + Button 2), & Drop Kick (Down on D-Pad + Button 2).
  • KI-11 - FR-33's enemy, who shares his hard drive, memory, and Model No. with FR-33. However, KI-11 is more of a military robot than FR-33's slave purpose.

Easter Eggs

If the player waits long enough on the title screen, the game will say, "What? Don't you want to play?" and display a preview screen, where the opening credits are displayed.
