Cardboard Robot Game - starring LMR Look-alikes (rik-puff-calculon-mikv Pyro style !!)

Just for fun i found this game with an uncanny likeness to LMR bods.

including  rik (with Admin-glasses)- puff (the Dragon) - Calculon320 (the robot)- mikv (pyrotechniques).

There are too many synchronous LMR events in this game ....... (did an ex spammer make it !!!!)
