Paradroid, originally for Commodore 64, is a computer game written by Andrew Braybrook and published by Hewson in 1985. It was also released, as Paradroid 90, for the Commodore Amiga and Atari ST home computers and as Paradroid 2000 for the Acorn Archimedes. There are also several fan-made remakes for modern PCs. In 2004 the Commodore 64 version was re-released as a built-in game on the C64 Direct-to-TV, and in 2008 for the Wii Virtual Console in Europe.

The game is set on a spaceship viewed from a top-down perspective. The ship consists of numerous rooms and levels, each one populated by hostile robots or "droids." The player, in control of a special droid called the "Influence Device," must destroy all the other droids on the ship. Each droid (including the player) is represented as a circle around a three-digit number. The numbers roughly correspond to the droid's "power" or "level," in that higher-numbered droids are tougher to destroy.
