Almost Intelligent Machines (A.I.M.) is a multiple-stage boss-battle. The player controls a legion of bots, that are needed to fight said boss, of which the player himself can only control one at a time. The other bots need to be assigned to sub-tasks in defeating the enemy. During that, the latter can corrupt them and either make them useless or even fight against the player.
A.I.M. is set in a large room inside an industrial building with the boss spawning in its middle. The player gets a given set of bots, one of which they can control. In order to defeat the boss, the player can assign the bots to pick up items, attack or evacuate confused or corrupted bots to a healing station. There is a time limit as to how long the fight may take. If the player exceeds it, they lose.
