How to Turn Off the Sound on Robot Unicorn Attack

Updated February 21, 2017

Robot Unicorn Attack is a side-scrolling, Web-based Flash game available on the Adult Swim website that allows you to control a unicorn as it travels across a fantasy landscape at breakneck speeds. The game's soundtrack is the song "Always" by the band Erasure and features a repeated melody and lyrics that you may wish to shut off shortly after they begin. This can be done by either disabling the sound on your computer, turning off your speakers, or downloading a utility that can shut off the sound coming from any embedded Flash game or application that is playing in your browser.
